I have a soft spot for Garfield's birthday strips for some reason I don't understand. It's the only time I ever read Garfield -- June 19, every year.

So, this morning I look up their website, and toward the lower left of the screen is an ad proudly proclaiming that their desktop widget "works with Vista!"

And I realized that it really sums up everything you need to know about people who read Garfield on a regular basis.

Is it just me, or has this run up to this 12th anniversary been rather pointed and mean spirited?

I've heard Jim Davis hates Garfield, but it's kinda showing this past few weeks.

For some reason, whenever I get the comics out of the newspaper, I always end up reading Garfield. Most of the time they suck, but I read them every time.

I also do the same with Family Circus, but that's more to see what kind of stupid wholesome crap they're getting into this week. It does remind me of one of the best Family Guy bits

Bill: Well, maybe you just didn't try hard enough, Brian.

Brian: You know what, father from Family Circus? All you do is judge other people. Every day in the funnies, all you do is judge. Why don't you shut your goddamn mouth for once and go home and fark your wife in the face?

Bill: You know what? That's exactly what I'm gonna do.

Peter: This is a very shocking Family Circus.

12. It's a thinly-veiled commentary on the Kennedy Administration. Garfield is JFK, Odie is Ted, Jon is Joe, Nermal is Bobby, Arlene is Jackie, Lyman is lobotomized Rose. Mondays are the Commies, the spiders are the Cubans and the lasagna is all the top-shelf ass he scored.

13. Jim Davis should blow Lorenzo Music's corpse on odd-numbered days and Bill Murray on even-numbered days.

Loved Garfield as a kid- the TV show was a favorite, read all the comic book compilations, you name it, and hence I feel awful mentioning how bad it is now. Sort of like my relationship with the Simpsons.

Funny thing is I still have a few of the older books, and when I pick them up I still chuckle at a few of the comics. Makes me feel better knowing that Garfield actually was a good comic when I was a kid, and it's not just my tastes changing for these things.

I wonder if that would be as poignant and sad-hilarious if I hadn't grown up reading those stupid Garfield books in the car when we went on road trips with my parents in the early 80s. If we didn't have Garfield as part of the cultural currency common to all of us, would that comic even register? Would we care?

There were three -- the original "friends are there" song, the "party" song, and the hip-hop song they used in the (crappy) final season.

Funny thing is, characters would sing or hum the original theme song throughout the series.

Extra funny cause a friend of mine has a big fat male tabby cat that likes a good belly rub... and he recently contracted an inner ear infection and had a serious case of the Dizzy-cats for about 4 weeks.

And that's roughly what his eyes looked like for that month.

Garfield was pretty much the same. We were just brain damaged children who hadn't seen funny, and formed positive memory associations with it, so the old ones are 'still funny'. Much like snl.

It's funny how many people remember Lyman, since he was in maybe about ten total strips.

As a kid I always wondered why he got thrown under a bus. Especially since Odie was technically his dog.

The voice of 'Garfield' starred on 'Rhoda' and 'The Real Ghostbusters'

I for one am shocked that Lorenzo Music had the gall to take jobs other than being the voice of Garfield. Also, that Venkman, who only sounded exactly like Garfield, might have had the same voice actor. Had no idea. Thanks, article writer guy!

I used to really love the old Garfield strips and cartoons and whatnot. My favorite of the cartoons was "Garfield: His 9 Lives"; it just gets really weird and surreal and kind of touching at points. I just watched it again a few days ago, after it got features on io9, and ironically (or not, depending on your POV), the best two stories from that one were the two that had the least to do with Garfield: "Diana's Piano" and "Lab Animal".

tillerman35: Here's #12 for you: Odie never "speaks" (or uses thought-bubble telepathy). Except for in ONE strip, in which he says "I'm Hungry."


That was a pretty good near simulpost.

Not a fan of the strip. Don't think I was as a kid either (I never had a cat, so maybe I didn't get the humor as much).

Meh, I don't get the hate for marketing Garfield as much as he does. Its a stupid, tame comic about a cat.

HeartBurnKid: Andromeda: Loved Garfield as a kid- the TV show was a favorite, read all the comic book compilations, you name it, and hence I feel awful mentioning how bad it is now. Sort of like my relationship with the Simpsons.

Funny thing is I still have a few of the older books, and when I pick them up I still chuckle at a few of the comics. Makes me feel better knowing that Garfield actually was a good comic when I was a kid, and it's not just my tastes changing for these things.

/been on the "Garfield's Nightmare" ride in Kennywood mentioned in the article
//sorry to mention it sucks

I used to really love the old Garfield strips and cartoons and whatnot. My favorite of the cartoons was "Garfield: His 9 Lives"; it just gets really weird and surreal and kind of touching at points. I just watched it again a few days ago, after it got features on io9, and ironically (or not, depending on your POV), the best two stories from that one were the two that had the least to do with Garfield: "Diana's Piano" and "Lab Animal".


I watched that one several times when I was a kid and those two were my favorites. Strangely well-done for a kid's cartoon.

I remember reading somewhere that Jim Davis has won far more awards for the marketing of Garfield than for the actual strip. The wiki for Jim Davis isn't very specific and I can't find that referenced anywhere in my superficial searches. Still, it wasn't very surprising considering that the strip is no longer really made by Davis, but by many people that just grind them out like so much product from a factory. I think the above article overstates his actual involvement.

The book was better.

"Primal Self" was easily the darkest and most disturbing story Davis has ever written. That, together with Davis' approval of "Garfield Without Garfield" and also that strange serial newspaper strip that suggested Garfield was in purgatory and Jim and Odie were simply figments of his imagination, and you get the sense that Davis' despises his creation and has actively welcomed its destruction ever since it went big.

I can respect that in an artist. Unfortunately, it seems that unlike Watterson, Davis simply cannot walk away.

They push a dumptruck full of money up to his door every day. He's not made of stone!.

Seriously, if you had a creation that was making money hand over fist, could you bring yourself to end it? In that light, I don't dislike him for outsourcing it to others, since he isn't interested in saying anything in particular since that point. At least he hasn't gone on a weird author filibuster, inventing meaning and crazy talk for a comic about a cat, pretending the comic is some larger commentary on humanity or some such beyond his reach.

Seriously. I hope nobody pays that lady for that.

As said earlier... that's not even un-joke ironic. Maybe the coffee one? I can't tell, it's just beyond the pale.


I wanna say that the "Coffee is Foreclosures" shirt was the best attempt here but it died on the vine. It skips the Setup and Punchline to dive straight into Awkward.

When that cartoon started running in The Cincinnati Enquirer, I spent about a week trying to figure out what the hell the point was and why the paper thought anyone would read it (other than trying to figure out the point). Then it hit me: someone called around and said, "Would you like to buy a new one-panel comic by Julie Larson?" And the guy listening misheard it as 'Gary Larson' and said "Absolutely!"

Still can't explain its presence in The Funny Times, though.

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who doesn't get the humor in these comics. I picked up a newspaper and went to the comics section the other day and thought perhaps there was something wrong with *me* when I didn't get a single laugh.

Nickster79: Anyone who still actually thinks Garfield is funny needs to read Maddox's explanation for why they are wrong.

Garfield Sucks


Out of curiosity, I clicked this link. Our web-filter marked it as "tasteless". I guess our web-filter likes Garfield as much as the rest of us.

/still a Garfield fan, thanks Jim Davis...
//now a Garfield minus Garfield fan, thanks Fark.

JohnAnnArbor: Flint Ironstag: From what I hear Jim Davis is a pretty cool guy. When Scott Adams was just starting off with Dilbert Davis sent him a note when one of the Dilbert strips spoofed Garfield and they traded originals. He's never, AFAIK, objected to the Garfield Without Garfield websites and similar and one online cartoonist had a blog reporting Davis sent them a hand drawn and signed Garfield after they spoofed Garfield. (Google failed me in finding it)
So say what you like about the strip, and I still enjoy them, but he does seem a cool guy.

That's the one. Adams said getting the Garfield original was the biggest financial gain he'd made up to then.

And read this interview with Bill Watterson, long before he quit by the sound of it, and sad to say he comes off sounding a bit of a dick. Saying no strip should be allowed to continue after the original artist dies, for example. No problem with him deciding to do that with his creation but to "impose" that on everyone else? C+H was a fantastic strip, but there is nothing "wrong" with Garfield or a strip being written by someone else. Davis views Garfield as a business. Watterson as art. Neither is "right" or "wrong" and it is unfair to criticise someone else for having a different goal. I enjoy both strips, and I still have the car Garfield with the suction cups from well over twenty years ago. (Someone bought it for me as a gift. One day I think I'll put it back on my car, just for the retro funny.)

Fano:
Garfield's Nine Lives was good, Diana's Piano is the most emotional Garfield thing ever done

/played piano as child
//this video is right up there with Iron Giant saying "Superman"


Oh for hell's sakes, I clicked on that and suddenly it got all dusty in my office.
