Garfield

Garfield is one of my favourite cartoon character during my school days. Garfield is like "a Human in Cat Suit". This fat cat has so many similarities with human. His thought resembles human's thinking. Not forgetting his selfish behaviour, his greediness etc etc.. Garfield says and does things that people would like to say and do. Garfield also struggles with human problems - obesity, dieting, loathing of Mondays, apathy, boredom etc. Wonder if Garfield ever melayang-layang anot?

My collection of Garfield cushions (>10 years).

I can still remember some of the Garfield's favourite quotes.. (cos they are hilarious)
  • Diet is 'die' with a 't'.
  • I'm not over-weight, I'm under-tall.
  • If u want to look thinner, hang around people fatter than u.
Behind the scene :
Garfield - the fat, lazy, overweight, cynical but lovable orange-coloured cat who likes eating, sleeping and watching tv. He loves lasagna and hates Monday. (good to hug cos so fleshy)
Odie - the dumb-dumb, stupid and naive dog (unlike the clever ah boy or liucas)
Jon
- Garfield and Odie's suku, pathetic kolian owner
Pooky
- Garfield's teddy bear (dun play-play)
Arlene - Garfield's sweetheart (with long-long neck like giraffe; mutant feline ah?)
Nermal - Garfield's cousin (the perasan meow meow who thinks he is the world cutest cat) .

This famous comic character, Garfield was created by Jim Davis. Garfield was named after Jim's grandfather, James Garfield Davis. The first Garfield comic strip was debuted on 19 June 1978.

*puts hand up* I like Garfield! I wanna luxuriate in sleeping all the time, scarfing lasagna, ordering Jon around, and booting Odie off the table! Muahahahaha...

Disclaimer: The booting dogs off tables only applies to Odie, and not clever/smart/cute dogs like Ah Boy.

Eee... I like Garfield also. So cute...

I once had a tutor who was a 101% Garfield fan. Her room can be turned into a mini Garfield expo already. Hahahaha~

mistipurple said...

i was crazy about Garfield when he was first out! even buy big plastic poster of him and learnt how to draw him by heart! now, sudah lupa everything.
also, he is not so funny as before, or maybe i am getting more cynical as i grow older. :(

I think the Garfield movies ruined everything too....

Ah Boy would definitely got for Liucas if he has to choose between Garfield and PussyGalore..

dino said...

garfield eat too much of lasagna..
that why so "dun dun" look..

Chen said...

dino,
hahaha, to tell u the truth, i dunno what the heck is lasagna during my secondary school days.. Cos lasagna is not available in my hometown in Sarawak, and no internet to search for things or pictures like nowadays ;)

The first time I tasted lasagna was... something like a decade ago? ;)

Whiskoffee said...

Didn't know that Garfield is one year older than yours truly... -.-"

Seeing ur cushion collections reminds me of this one Garfield cushion which i have bought for a friend as a Christmas gift.

Reason for me choosing this gift for him is bcos he is always sleepy and has droopy eyelids - just like Garfield. When his gf saw the cushion, she laughed at this similarity.

Winkz!

But then, he threw this away when it was kena attacked by bed bugs... So sad...

>.<

Chen said...

Whiskoffee,
Since Garfield is one year older, then he can become your Big Brother ;)

Sorry to hear about the Garfield cushion tat u gave to your fren. (I presume those bed bugs are house dust mites?)
