|June 19, 2023 – Paramount Global is celebrating the 45th anniversary of Jim Davis’ Garfield – one of the most iconic cats in show business. The very first Garfield comic was published 45 years ago today.
Why exactly is this cat so lovable? He naps whenever he wants, gets the first (and last) bites of all his favorite foods, he’s charmingly witty, and is all about self-love! His creator Jim Davis says, “It’s incredible to see that after all this time, Garfield continues to be a big fat hairy deal! It’s been 45 years since my first Garfield comic was published and fans are still in love with him – sassy cattitude and all!”.
“I suspect that the fact that there’s a little Garfield in each of us has helped to capture hearts around the world,” says Davis.
Paramount is celebrating the beloved cat in several unique ways, one of which, of course, includes a birthday cake! Various artisanal bakers will be coming up with their own renditions to celebrate Garfield’s 45th. While the cakes will not be for sale, they are a stunning tribute to our favourite feline.
