Everyones favourite, lazy, lasagna-loving cat has been around since 1978 and Garfield is just as popular today as he was then, when he debuted as a comic strip more than three decades ago. The strip spawned a TV show, video games, two feature films and millions of books. Garfield's character design has changed many times throughout the years - but what hasn't changed is that the cat has always been - and always will be - fat. If he lost weight, that would end Garfield as we know him. Garfield holds the Guinness World Record for being the world's most widely syndicated comic strip (more than 2500 newspapers and journals). In the UK Garfield appears in the Daily Mail every day, as well as in local newspapers. Garfield also has over 17 million fans on Facebook - that's one seriously popular feline!
