Debut of Garfield, The Original Grumpy Cat

Garfield was launched June 19 1978.

Garfield is a comic strip created by Jim Davis. Published since 1978, it chronicles the life of the title character, the cat Garfield; his owner, Jon; and Jon's dog, Odie.

Garfield is an orange, fuzzy, tabby cat born in the kitchen of an Italian restaurant (later revealed in the television specialGarfield: His 9 Lives to be Mama Leoni's Italian Restaurant) and immediately ate all the pasta and lasagna in sight, thus developing his love and obsession for lasagna and pizza.

Though Garfield can be very cynical, he does have a soft side for his teddy bear, Pooky, food and sleep.
