* When Garfield is stuck in a haunted house, he's opening up various doors. Behind one, he finds ''ComicStrip/{{Nancy}}'' and Sluggo (as they appeared during Jerry Scott's tenure on the strip, which was around the time the show aired).
* In one episode, Wade is seen wearing [[ComicStrip/MotherGooseAndGrimm Grimmy slippers.]]


* Also doubling as a BrickJoke: in one episode, Garfield & Nermal contend with mutant guppies, who they defeat by chasing them back into the sewer. Said guppies then appear in the subsequent US Acres Quickie; after scaring Wade and Orson, one guppy turns to his fellows and says "Come on guys, let's go see if we can get a guest shot on the ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', whaddaya say?" (Muppet Babies aired after the show on CBS at the time).

(Muppet (''Muppet Babies (1984)'' aired after the show on CBS at the time).



* In "Flat Tired", while deciding who to get for the cartoon when Garfield is too tired, the director initially says "Get me [[Franchise/TheMuppets Kermit The Frog]] on the phone," before choosing [[ADayInTheLimelight Odie]]. Also a bit of an in-joke, since ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'' was also on CBS at the time.

* The title of the episode "The Lasagna Zone" spoofs ''Series/TheTwilightZone'', and the plot of Garfield getting TrappedInTVLand only to find out that it was AllJustADream...[[OrWasItADream Or Was It]] could easily have occurred on the actual show.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

** Another shout-out to an earlier episode happens in "Temp Trouble", where Roy's doctor outfit is the same one from the musical number in "The Impractical Joker".


* In "Kiddie Korner", Aloysius says that sitting on a tuffet "sounds naughty". This could be a reference to a Dot's Poetry Corner segment of {{WesternAnimation/Animaniacs}} that aired a year before this episode, where Dot reads Little Mrs. Muffet and uses "tuffet" as a euphemism for "butt", [[PantyShot while showing us her panties doing so.]]
* Newsworthy Wade has a ShowWithinAShow called "7 Minutes", a spoof of Series/SixtyMinutes.
* In a weird example of the show having a shout out to itself, one US Acres quickie had Roy on a stage in a competition involving baaing and cocking against Lanolin. One season later, the same stage reappears in the Laryngitis quickie, and he stands on it in almost the exact same manner!

** Still another was "If you change the channel, you will never see your dog again.", referencing the famous "Buy this magazine or we'll kill this dog" January 1973 cover of ''National Lampoon''.
** Another one of these quotes had Garfield say "This show is [[Series/SesameStreet brought to you by the letter K and the number 9.]]"
