His first job was a pet behavior trainer, with a program to show the results of pets with improved behavior.

Upon finding out that a disguised Harrywas able to do well by pretending to be good, Garfield discovers the true nature of the program. When he appears on Dr. Whipple's show, Garfield manages to expose the doctor's phony program, which ruins his business.
His second role was getting Garfield to do chores around the Arbuckle farm. He has helped Garfield twice: once by giving Eddie gourmand a checkup; later by telling Garfield that he is in control of his dreams when Nathan was controlling one of Garfield's dreams.
- He was voiced by Stan Freberg.
