Today we are pleased to start posting our new Garfield cartoon strip. Most of you will know Garfield and his owner Jon but I thought to celebrate his arrival here at Jammy Toast, it might be fun to have a look at where Garfield came from. Garfield was created by cartoonist Jim Davis and chronicles the life of the cat Garfield; his owner, Jon Arbuckle; and Jon’s dog, Odie. Common themes in the strip include Garfield’s laziness, obsessive eating, and disdain of Mondays and diets. The strip’s focus is mostly on the interactions between Garfield, Jon, and Odie. However, recurring minor characters also appear in the strip.
Today we thought we would ask your advice on our cartoon. As you all know, a couple of months ago we started featuring the adventures of Horace the Cowboy, Horace the Bear and Horace the Snake at the bottom of each days post. However, we are running out of cartoons because The Daily Mirror doesn’t publish Horace every day and we have caught them up. So, we have the choice to either carry on with sporadic episodes of Horace or start featuring somebody else – if someone else then who else should we feature?
Some of you have been telling us how funny you find our new cartoon strip bear, Horace. When we started featuring him on Jammy Toast we failed to tell you that he is not just a bear. Horace is three stories all featured in one. He is the bear you have already seen and he is also a gormless cowboy and occasionally a snake. We have now run out of bear cartoons for a while so we are switching over to Horace the gormless cowboy and hopefully you will continue to enjoy Horace but this time as he blunders his way through the Wild West.
We have decided to bring a new friend to Jammy Toast, his name is Horace. Horace is a bear with a wicked outlook on life who appears in the Daily Mirror from time-to-time. Unfortunately, he has to share his stage with Horace, the gormless cowboy and Horace a snake. We will include a cartoon strip at the bottom of each days post while we can but sooner or later we will run out of Horace’s so he will only be here while we can – don’t get too attached, you will miss him when he is gone.
