Trivia / The Garfield Show

  • Consolation Award: June Foray won her only competitive Emmy for appearing on this show. She was a guest star. On one episode. And she'd never even been nominated before then - keep in mind that for most of her life the Emmys didn't even have a voice-acting category. So many people are seeing the Garfield win as a consolation prize for her entire legendary career.note 
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: By all accounts, apparently only the first season was ever released on video. Even though the third season has aired, Netflix only has the first two seasons (similarly to Garfield and Friends).
  • The Other Darrin: Frank Welker (who, rather expectedly, had also appeared on Garfield and Friends) took over as Garfield after the death of original voice actor Lorenzo Music. Also, Wally Wingert replaced Thom Huge as Jon.
  • Recycled Set: Entire environments are often recycled for different locations quite often.
  • Role Reprisal: Gregg Berger reprises his role as Odie.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Frank Welker voices the majority of the extras and secondary characters. In fact, if there's any minor character with a speaking role you can expect them to be voiced by Frank 90% of the time.
    • In one episode, Garfield is terrorized in a nightmare by a talking scale (also voiced by Frank Welker); over the course of the dream, the scale slowly changes its shrill voice until it winds up with Frank Welker's Dr. Claw/Soundwave voice.
    • Gregg Berger and Jason Marsden also do several voices on the show.
