Garfield is a comic strip by Jim Davis.
Published since June 19, 1978, it chronicles the life of the title character, the cat Garfield , his owner, Jon Arbuckle; and Arbuckle’s dog, Odie. As of 2007, it was syndicated in roughly 2,580 newspapers and journals, and held the Guinness World Record for being the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip.
Common themes in the strip include Garfield’s laziness, obsessive eating, and hatred of Mondays and diets. …….inside each one of us, hides a Garfield…..ok, if not in anyone else’s…but in mine, it surely does.
I myself hag around 14 cats…when I was in Hasimara….more about it in my autobiography.
Look how an imaginary lazy cats’ character is feeding several families…maybe this is why its so famous…
The strip’s focus is mostly on the interactions among Garfield, Jon, and Odie; recurring minor characters appear as well. Originally created with the intentions to “come up with a good, marketable character,” Garfield has spawned merchandise earning $750 million to $1 billion annually. In addition to the various merchandise and commercial tie-ins, the strip has spawned several animated television specials, two animated television series, two theatrical feature-length live-action films and three CGI animated direct-to-video movies.
