Think he's fat now? Wait until you see the 1978 Garfield strips!

Name: Garfield
Appears In: Garfield and Friends, The Garfield Show
Sex: Male
Age: 3232?
Nationality: American
Occupation(s): Cat to Jon who doesn't do anything at all.
Played By: Lorenzo Music, Bill Murray, Frank Welker

Garfield is a lazy, overweight, cynical, orange cat who lives with Jon Arbuckle. It is possible that he is but a figment of Jon's imagination, as they do not appear to directly interact with each other. Scientists are currently investigating the matter.



Garfield was apparently born in an Italian restaurant back in 1978. (If so, then we can assume that the earliest strips take place in the future.) He has developed a love for lasagna ever since.

Hmmm...not really much of a history to tell for a cat who's hasn't changed much (other than his weight) for the past 30 years.
