Garfield's beginnings

It's funny how a kitten named Garfield who loves to eat lasagna, coffee and completely hates Mondays, makes us all love this quirky and fun series.

But did you know that these cartoons didn't start out as a series?

Garfield empezó a transmitirse por periódicos en los años 70, siendo la tira cómica más vendida del mundo, tanto que, decidieron transmitir esta serie por la televisión a través de la cadena CBS.

Jim Davis, the creator of Garfield, before creating the plump orange kitten we all know, in his comic strips all the characters were bugs. Did you know?

Yes, as I told you, but finally Davis had to change his mind because he did not have the expected success, no one was going to feel identified with insects as he was told in the newspaper where he published his strips. So, as a result of this, he decided to create the cat-human named Garfield. And what a success!

Garfield's first cartoon was published on July 19, 1978. At that time the appearance of this famous cat was different, less fat and with even larger and rounder eyes, something that viewers did not like as much as his physique current.

And what do you like more, the more or less fat kitten?

Jim Davis, comenzó a pensar sobre la personalidad que tendría el gato, hasta que se le ocurrió que para darle vida al famoso Garfield se basaría en las 25 personalidades de cada uno de los gatos que habían en la granja donde se creció de pequeño.

He was an asthmatic and sickly boy, so while all his brothers were playing in the field, Davis was dedicated to drawing all the animals that were crossing him and he saw from his window, among them all the cats that ran around, Garfield It was already in his head since he was very little.

Jim Davis, wanted to represent in some way our day to day with this peculiar character.

We all feel overwhelmed at times and we want to spend a whole day sitting on the sofa doing nothing and eating our favorite dish, this is one of the reasons that makes us love this series.We all feel identified with this feeling!

According to Davis “we live in an age where we are made to feel guilty, for not exercising, sleeping excessively and overeating. Not only does Garfield do all of those things, but he's okay with it. I think somehow he alleviates our guilt.

Why does Garfield love lasagna and hate Mondays?

In this series we can see how Garfield loves lasagna, but why lasagna?

Esto es debido a que nació en un restaurante italiano el cual se llamaba Mama Leone, donde podía comer y comer toda la lasaña que quisiera, desde entonces no puede vivir sin ella.

And this does not end here. Why do you think this character hates Mondays?

As I have already told you, he loves lasagna, and the reason for this hatred is related to his love for this food. Garfield, in the restaurant where he was born, could eat as much fresh lasagna as he wanted, but since Mondays were closed, he had to make do with leftovers, and this is something he cannot bear.
