Today, it appears in 2570 newspapers around the globe and is read by 263 million people, making it 'The Most Widely Syndicated Comic Strip in the World' as recorded by Guinness World Records. Additionally, Garfield enjoys a healthy product licensing programme, whereby almost 400 licensees crank out thousands of products depicting Garfield and the rest of the gang.In fact, his vast empire stretches into 111 countries and includes a popular website - which attracts over 2 million visitors each month. Garfield has also joined the digital world...as well as featuring in two computer animated 'direct-to-DVD' films ("Garfield Gets Real" and "Garfield's Fun Fest"), he is gearing up for his 2009 debut in 26 all-new TV episodes - "The Garfield Show", which will offer a fresh and funny look at his day-to-day life, blending the modern look of CGI animation with the familiar humour of Garfield, Odie and Jon.
At 30, Garfield is still feeling frisky and shows no signs of slowing down.
