Garfield Turns 40 Today

Happy Birthday Garfield, And Thank You Forever Jim Davis

40 years ago today Garfield first appeared as a comic strip. Creator Jim Davis pulled audiences in by having them follow the life of Garfield the lazy orange cat, his owner Jon who dislikes Mondays, and the dog Odie. 

Bob relates a lot to Garfield. He wonders where his lasagna is multiple times in a day and he believes that sleep is how one maintains their quality of life. 

As of 2013 the comic was syndicated in about 2,580 newspapers and it holds the Guinness World Record for most syndications. The Garfield brand is earning a billion dollars a year from merchandising, books, films, and television. 

If Bob was earning a billion dollars a year, he would definitely be living his life exactly like Garfield. No doubt. 

Watch this cool episode from Garfield and Friends

Happy Birthday Ya Lazy Cat!
