For some time now we have been featuring our good friend Garfield at the foot of all our posts. We have a fondness for the cat who hates Monday but loves lasagne. I know many of you also enjoy the ginger cat’s adventures too from things you have said and comments you have left. We did originally plan to feature a bear cartoon but we couldn’t find one that was both funny and available in the quantity to enable us to feature a strip every day. Now we have found the adventures of a little girl called Molly and her scaredy-cat bear simply called Bear. However, don’t worry we are not planning on dropping Garfield but instead featuring both cartoons daily.

The Garfield Story

Garfield’s comic strip is syndicated in over two and a half thousand newspapers and journals, as well as being featured here on Jammy Toast. It holds the Guinness World Record for being the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip. Garfield was created by Jim Davis and first published in 1978. It chronicles the life of the title character, the cat Garfield, Jon, his owner, and Jon’s dog, Odie. Common themes in the strip include Garfield’s laziness, obsessive eating, his disdain of Mondays and diets. The strip’s focus is mostly on the interactions among Garfield, Jon (his owner), and Odie (Jon’s pet dog), but other recurring minor characters appear as well. As he features on every Jammy Toast post, we thought it was time we told his story…

The Return Of Garfield

Those of you with a good memory may recall that we used to feature Garfield the Comic Strip each day on our blog. We stopped mainly because we were aware of the copyright implications of reproducing material which belongs to Jim Davis. However, if we are friendly about it – reproduce the copyright details, credit it all to Jim Davis and publish a link to Garfield’s website – then surely no one can seriously complain about anything. Especially as Garfield is syndicated in roughly 2,580 newspapers and journals and is the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip.
