Synopsis

Synopsis

Garfield’s Back—with a Bellyful of Laughs!
 
What are calories to a cat? For Garfield, they’re a delicious way of life. But what do you expect from a feline who is able to eat tall lasagnas in a single gulp? So whether he’s chaperoning Jon on a date, sleeping ’til noon, or tormenting the odiously lovable Odie, Garfield will never miss his next meal—or the chance to make us laugh!
 
The Garfield Classics series collects the early years of the Garfield comic strips in a larger, full-color format. Garfield may have gone through a few changes, but one thing has stayed the same: his enormous appetite for food and fun. So laugh along with the classic cat, because classics are always in style.

Jim Davis was born on July 28, 1945, in Marion, Indiana. He later attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, where he distinguished himself by earning one of the lowest cumulative grade point averages in the history of the university. (Incidentally, a fellow classmate named David Letterman earned the other). The Garfield strip was born on June 19, 1978, syndicated in forty-one U.S. newspapers. Today it’s syndicated in more than 2,100 newspapers worldwide with more than 200 million readers, leading Guinness World Records to name Garfield The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World. Davis has had many successes with Garfield, including four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program and induction into the Licensing Hall of Fame (1998), but his most prized awards are from his peers in the National Cartoonist Society: Best Humor Strip (1981 and 1985), the Elzie Segar Award (1990), and the coveted Reuben Award (1990) for overall excellence in cartooning.
