Dr. Whipple (voiced by Stan Freberg) is a recurring character in The Garfield Show, with multiple jobs throughout the series. He is often an antagonist.


Extreme Housebreaking

His first job was a pet behavior trainer, with a program to show the results of pets with improved behavior. Garfield was forced to go through Dr. Whipple's course, which included many unpleasant activities, such as being crushed by a safe whenever he wanted to steal Dr. Whipple's food. Upon finding out that a disguised Harry was 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.

Farm Fresh Feline

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.

Jumbo Shrimpy

His third role was another television program where he helped animals with the way they felt. His test subject was an elephant named Shrimpy, who performed tricks for people to be a result of Whipple's methods. But as it turns out Dr. Whipple treated Shrimpy so harshly, even denying him food. Garfield helps Shrimpy gain the confidence to escape, resulting in Whipple calling the police to find him. When they do Whipple threatens severe punishment on Shrimpy. This results in the police arresting Whipple, as mistreating animals is against the law. Whipple considers turning Shrimpy over to the zoo in exchange for a lighter sentence.

His fourth role, which is most common, is being a therapist.

Furry Tales

He appeared as Viceroy Whipple who want to become king and loot the kingdom.
