This day in history: Garfield Debuts

It was today, June 19th, 1978 that Garfield with his lasagna loving and Monday hating ways were brought into our lives.

In honor of him, I myself will be lazy today and pull snippets from past Nostalgia Blog piece written by my buddy and co-creator of the Nostalgia Blog M. Manuge.

The first is from a post called These People Really Love Garfield which delves into the lives of people who love to spend all of their money on Garfield memorabilia. After watching this you realize how this merchandise generates upwards of $750 million to $1 billion annually…

 

Like most people my age, I didn’t get into Garfield through the comics but through the TV show. And wouldn’t you know it? M. Manuge wrote a piece about that too called Ladies and Gentlemen: Garfield and Friends.

 

One of my favorite things to come out of Garfield is the hindsight that comedy group Fatal Farm gave us on how terrible the actual comic was…

 

So there you have it. A post lazy enough to have been written by Garfield himself.
