    "Nice Touch." - One of Garfield's catchphrases

    Garfield is the main protagonist and anti-hero from many Garfield comic strips. He was born on June 19, 1978, in the kitchen of Mamma Leoni's Italian Restaurant. The comic strip centers on Garfield, portrayed as a lazy, mischievous, wisecracking, sarcastic, selfish, and cynical fat orange Persian/tabby cat who is a pet of Jon Arbuckle, the long-suffering pet owner Garfield tends to abuse and mock him for being inferior to himself. He is noted for his love of lasagna and sleeping, and his hatred of Mondays, fellow cat Nermal and exercise. Garfield frequently gets into many adventures, such as getting stuck in roll-up shades, sparring with mice, and getting locked up in animal shelters.

    Why He Deserves Lasagna

    1. He is an amazing cat who's one of the most memorable cartoon cats in history and he is very iconic. In fact, he's a lot more iconic than Heathcliff himself.
    2. His levels of imagination and mischievous antics from his own show were very underrated.
    3. He is very hilarious and has spawned many beloved internet memes over time.
    4. He even had his own show in the 80s!
      • Speaking of which, all of the one-liners he provides as opening gags after the title screen appears are memorable, charming, witty, and hilarious.
      • "I know where you live"
    5. His trademark deadpan sarcasm and cynicism are very hilarious, endearing and entertaining.
    6. Lorenzo Music, Bill Murray and Frank Welker (despite the sheer goofiness from Garfield's voice in The Garfield Show) all did a great job voicing him. Giving him a consistently charming and chilled tone of voice.
    7. Almost all of his designs are great.
    8. He is very intelligent and obviously way smarter than how you'd perceive him with his everyday laziness, especially for a cat.
    9. He may seem rude and mean-spirited to his friends, but he still cares deeply about them.
    10. Speaking of which, his friend-hate relationship with Odie is even more underrated than Garfield's comedic antics since even though he kicks Odie off the table a lot, he still considers Odie as his best friend and has shown to care for him at times.
    11. On top of that, his jealousy and rivalry with Nermal never get old and the way he tries to get back at him is just satisfying.
    12. In Spring 1990, he was involved with the anti-drug special entitled Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue.

    Bad Qualities

    1. He can be considered to be very unlikable in some of his appearances, especially all 5 of the Garfield movie adaptations, and The Garfield Show, although most of the time, he finds a way to redeem himself as a character.
    2. He can lack some common sense at times, but he is still smart enough to solve his own problems with Odie and many other things.
    3. His hate for Mondays and jokes about his laziness, while funny and iconic have been done to death.
      • Also, jokes that poke fun at his fat appearance and eating addictions, while funny and iconic, are also done to death, if not more.
      • It makes little to no sense for him to hate Mondays since he as a cat, doesn't have a job.
    4. His backstory on how he lost so much weight from his first debut with being originally obese was unexplained.
      • How and why he is able to eat anything other than cat food without any side effects does sound weird and senseless.
      • It's not really explained how he can stand on 2 legs like a normal person, as with many of his human-like actions.
    5. As much as he loves eating, he can come off as gluttonous, voracious and unhealthy at times. This is slightly understandable as he came from an Italian restaurant as described in his origins.
