Garfield characters.

Garfield is a brand created by cartoonist Jim Davis. It began as a series of newspaper comics in the late 1970s and slowly ballooned into a massive media franchise. The main cast includes Garfield the cat, Odie the dog, and Jon Arbuckle their owner. Garfield is fat, lazy, and smart-mouthed, Odie is stupid, but loyal, and Jon is a desperate dork.
