Jump to navigation Jump to search
Jon Arbuckle is the tritagonist of the Garfield franchise and one of the main characters of The Garfield Show. He is the owner of Garfield and Odie. He was voiced by Wally Wingert.
Why He Sucks
- Like how Garfield and Nermal got flanderized in the show, he was flanderized into a bumbling, idiotic, and unlikable jerk who was mean-spirited towards Garfield and Odie.
- He became more stupid than he was in the comics.
- He gives Garfield and Odie harsh punishments, even when they did nothing wrong, such as locking them outside.
- He even blamed Garfield for things Odie did when he was turned into a were-dog when there's no way possible that Garfield could've done those things proving his stupidity. Though to be fair, It makes sense why he thought Garfield ate the lasagna for 10 people, Garfield loved that lasagna and he tried to resist it, but it doesn't make sense why he thinks Garfield wrecked the room, Garfield suggested that maybe Odie did it, but Jon said "Don't try to pin this on poor, sweet, harmless Odie! Odie couldn't do something like this" Neither could Garfield!
- Even worse, in "TTSW", when he saw Nermal's leg okay when it was "broken before" (Nermal faked the fracture), he thinks it's getting better, wow Jon, how stupid are you?
- Later on, after Garfield and Odie break all their bones and can't eat food for a whole month, Jon eats lasagna in front of them and even has the gall to taunt them for not being able to eat. What a nice owner, right?
- His stupidity has gotten to the point where he starts becoming a bad owner to Garfield and Odie.
- He still takes care of Garfield and Odie.
- He apologizes for some of his actions.
- He's still funny.
- While he sometimes treats Garfield in a mean-spirited way, you can hardly blame him if you had a lazy and irresponsible pet cat like Garfield, given that Garfield hardly obeys him, spends his money in food without asking him, gets angry if he commits any innocent mistake and sometimes mocks him behind his back.
- He was a lot more funny and likable in the original comics, Garfield & Friends and even the direct-to-video trilogy.
- "Did you really think you could defeat me, wretched fool?"
