Bonzo was the former male partner of Lola. He was protective over Lola when Garfield tried to woo her, resorting to threats and violence to dissuade Garfield.

Physical Appearance

Bonzo is easily distinguishable due to his bulky body shape, composed of his round torso and relatively short limbs. His head seems to connect with the torso without a visible neck.

He has gray fur, lighter on the mouth and darker on the torso; supplemented by black stripes on his head and back in seasons 2 and 5.

Bonzo has appeared in two different outfits:


In short, Bonzo can be described as feline equivalent of Bluto from Popeye cartoons - he is bulky, violent and openly aggressive. In The Life and Times of the Lasagna Kid, it's also revealed that he lacks patience in waiting for ordered meals.
