Happy 35th to Garfield! by Lotusbandicoot Happy 35th to Garfield! by Lotusbandicoot
Yup, 35 years ago today, June 19, 1978, was the first Garfield comic strip. He was WAAAY fatter in those days, actually. [link] (Sorry it's not bigger, I couldn't find a larger version.)

I've had a special sentimental attachment to Paws Inc. since 2005. We had to do a "famous Hoosier" project since I live in Indiana, and I chose Jim Davis. What's more is that I only live an hour from Paws Inc!

Was anybody seriously expecting cake?

Also, I didn't know Jim Davis was a Hoosier.  You learn something new every day!

X) Probably not.

And yeah, I think he was born in either Marion or Fairmount. I live about an hour from both of those.

I love Garfield! It is a way better comic strip than all the one we get these days.
