About Garfield & Friends by PAWS, Inc.®
Since 1978, Garfield has been putting smiles on people's faces! The world's funniest and feistiest feline, Garfield is a human in a cat suit! Garfield would rather pig out than work out; like mornings if they started later; never met a lasagna he didn't like; never met a Monday he did. Whether he's feeding his face, snatching a snooze, or spouting a one-liner, Garfield never fails to amuse. www.garfield.com. "Garfield" Character(s): © PAWS. All Rights Reserved.
