US Acres Cartoon – Oh So Funny!

12 Jun

Snort – While surfing the net, I have found the funniest comic strip ever.  It’s called U.S. Acres or outside of the United States it was called Orson’s Farm.  Mom didn’t even know this comic strip existed – it is a hoot!

The comic strip originally ran from 1986 to 1989 and was created by Jim Davis.  You know who Jim Davis is – the creator of Garfield 🙂  It ended after only three years.  Towards the end of the strip, Brett Koth, who had been assisting Jim Davis on Garfield at the time, was given co-creator’s credit and signed his name to the strip with Davis. 

 The entire comic stip is centered around – well you guessed it – barnyard animals.  Here’s one of comic strips that I absolutely loved –20130522-105522.jpg

The main character was Orson – a pig just like me!  Yeah, I know he’s pink and I’m a black pig but we’re still pigs.  And the best part – sometimes Orson becomes a costumed superhero named Power Pig.  See, I knew there was a reason I liked him. 

There’s also Ray Rooster, Wade Duck, Booker, Sheldon, Bo Sheep and Lanolin Sheep to name a few.  If you haven’t checked this comic strip out yet, you just have to for some giggles!

    Mom knows the tv-show – she was a fan of Orson – always when he read a book the stuff about he read came true behind him.

    Had never seen, or heard, of Orson’s Farm. Love that Orson morphs into a Power Pig. This should give you heart, Bacon, that you can, too!

    I had never heard of this strip until literally a couple weeks ago, when it was the subject of a quiz on comic strips and it was the only one I missed! I think I know where the inspiration for Orson’s name came from! Ever read the book “Animal Farm”?

      Oh yes! Mom/dad said they have read that. I think I’m going to ask mom to start reading it to me at night as a bedtime story. Mom says she ‘faintly’ remembers this cartoon. She was laughing when I showed it to her. I mean hey Power Pig is right up my alley! Don’t you think I would look cool with a cape? I *know* I can be a super hero piggy. 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

        It would certainly be a sight to see! Just make sure you make a flight plan with the FAA first! And if you ever need a squirrelly sidekick, I know someone who might fit the bill!
