On this day 30 years ago, Garfield & Friends–my absolute favorite cartoon show from my youth–premiered on CBS. The first episode saw Garfield dealing with Binky the clown, Wade Duck fearful that he was going to be sent to prison for tearing a tag off of a pillow, and then concluded with Garfield falling victim to the Hawaiian Cat Flu.
Garfield and Friends ran seven seasons and became the only show on CBS’s Saturday Morning block to run a full hour. And were it not for the leaky ceiling I’m currently dealing with, I’d probably be able to gush about it more right now.
Have a wonderful day, everyone! And get along with the group, or someone will drop a 16 ton safe on you!
