Mama Meany is an antagonist in The Garfield Show. A con-artist who owns Mama Meany's Pizza Palace, he appeared in "Perfect Pizza' as the main antagonist, in "Depths of a Salesman" as one of the two main antagonists, alongside his right-hand Hal, and in the five-part special "The Lasagna Tree" as the main antagonist once again.

He was voiced by Gregg Berger, who also voiced other characters on the show such as Odie, Squeak and Harry. Berger is popularly known for voicing Grimlock on the mainstream Transformers series and Ripto from the Spyro franchise.


Meany is a very sleazy and greedy businessman who likes to scam people into going into his restaurants using his tempting sales and coupons. He apparently lacks real human integrity and does not care that his food tastes terrible, just as long as the public is dumb enough to fall for his tricks. This public confession is what caused Garfield to defeat him and get his establishments closed down in his final appearance.


"Perfect Pizza"

One day, Garfield gets a bad tasting of a pizza from Mama Meany's Pizza Palace (Jon ordered it instead of Vito's pizza, which he usually orders). Garfield forces Jon to take him to Vito's, where they learn from Vito that Mama Meany's Pizza Palace has stolen his customers by tricking them in eating their awful machine-made pizzas, with coupons and competitions (with big cash prizes), putting Vito out of business.

Vito gets a call from the famous food reviewer Eddie Gourmand, who makes a deal with Vito: If Vito can get a large pepperoni pizza to Eddies home in half an hour, and have him like it, Eddie will introduce Vito's pizza to millions. Vito agrees and has Garfield and Jon deliver the pizza (his truck was broken). Mama Meany and his assistant chase after them with their truck. Soon, they confront Jon, while Garfield steals their pizzas and activates a switch in the truck, causing it to crash. The chase is continued, and ends with Mama Meany and his assistant crashing into a billboard (because of the pizzas Garfield threw at the wind shield).

After crashing off a cliff, Jon and Garfield make it to Eddie's home and Eddie gives Vito a good review and Vito becomes very successful, and in return, he will let Jon and Garfield and Odie have all the free pizza they want.

"Depths of a Salesman"

Mama Meany later launches a shopping channel where he tricks people into buying useless products. He and his guards refuse to give Garfield his money back after tricking Jon. When Garfield tricks Mama into revealing his scheme on live television, he reluctantly refunds the money he made and gives Garfield lots of bubble wrap.

"The Lasagna Tree"

In his final appearance, "The Lasagna Tree", Mama Meany returns to the restaurant business, where he plans on making all other Italian restaurants go out of business due to his popularity, which is mostly caused by his television commercials. After discovering about a tree that supposedly grows the best lasagna in the world, he orders his minions to follow Vito as he looks for the tree.

After realizing the tree is a fake, he captures Odie and Garfield, only letting them loose when Vito's mother gives him the recipe she uses to make lasagna. As Mama gloats about his plan, insulting his customers in the process, he does not realize Garfield is filming him live on television until it is too late.

Mama is last seen sitting outside one of his now closed restaurants. Meanwhile, his goons have become garbage men, whilst Vito has regained his popularity.
