He’s selfish, sarcastic, lazy… and surprisingly endearing. Since its launch in 1978, the famous cat has spawned movies, TV shows, stage shows and merchandise, and has received four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Animated Program. Garfield content appears in 80 countries and has amassed over $3B in lifetime retail sales. In 2019, Paramount Global acquired ownership of Paws, Inc., which holds rights to the Garfield franchise.
