About Jon Arbuckle
Jonathan “Jon” Arbuckle is the main human character from the popular and successful Garfield movies, animated television series, and the comic strips created by Jim Davis. Originally started in 1978 as a comic strip, it has since held the Guinness Book of World records for the widest syndicated comic strip ever to be created. One reason people speculate that Garfield has become so popular is its lack of social or political commentary.
Originally created by Jim Davis to be a “good, marketable character,” the comic strip centers around Garfield’s laziness and obsessive eating. Jon doesn’t approve of Garfield’s “don’t care” attitude and constantly encourages him to venture out to experience the world around him, but Garfield often brushes it aside with a sarcastic remark. The Garfield franchise has since sold more than $1 billion in merchandise since it began in 1978.
