Bo Sheep is one of the main characters in the U.S. Acres strip.

Physical Appearance

Bo is a fluffy, white sheep with visible ears.


Bo's personality in the strip and in the cartoons are vastly different from each other.

In the comics, he was depicted as being highly unintelligent, cheerful, and quite an optimist. He loved everyone on the farm and liked giving them hugs. Troubles never ruined his day due to him being too scatterbrained to notice.

In Garfield and Friends, he was portrayed as a surfer-dude, used slang in just about all his sentences, was particularly bright and always cool, collected, and dependable. He retains some of his dimness in a few episodes (such as cooking spaghetti one noodle at a time or microwaving a single pea).

His sister Lanolin often disagrees with him, since she is always mean to him and sometimes finds it difficult to get along with her. They usually make up in the end and love each other just the same.

Bo is laid back, to the point where Orson’s brothers are unable to bother him. The only thing they could do to truly upset Bo was have him witness Orson getting bullied. He then tricked them into a game of tug-of-war, which resulted in them getting pulled away by a bus.

  • In the cartoon, out the three main adult male characters, Orson gets along with Bo the most. Unlike Roy and Wade, Bo does not upset Orson.
  • In the comic strip, Bo appeared after Booker and Sheldon hatched (partially in Sheldon's case). In the cartoon, he was around before the two chicks came around.
  • Due to his personality being different from the comics, Bo often uses surfer slang such as "Like" and "Man" in Garfield and Friends. Similarly, he often refers to Lanolin as "Sis" in the series.
  • He is the last main character to be introduced into the comic.
