CFM 1997.014.0010
Gift of Jenean N. Todd

Description: 1.89 inches high plastic figurine.

Garfield, the fat lasagna-loving cat, began life as a comic strip in 1978 when cartoonist Jim Davis created him, his owner Jon Arbuckle, and Odie the dog. The Garfield comic became a TV show, “Garfield & Friends,” which appeared on CBS from 1988 to 1995.
