    Don’t give up, Stephan — there’s more than one way to skin a cat.

    I hope Jim Davis isn’t that rich. Garfield is not that impressive!

    Now I wonder to whom goes the “Peanuts” royalties now that Schulz passed away 14 years ago.

    Among them is Stephan Pastis. Not really joking about that, Pastis is on the board of the Charles Schultz Museum. One wouldn’t believe it from the strip but Pastis himself has spoken quite highly of Schulz. He was one of his inspirations and also the reason he’s doing Pearls. Scott Adams made the strip huge by telling his fans to check it out. Charles Schulz actually looked over some of his early stuff when he was looking to break into the comics, gave him some pointers, and encouraged him to pursue his current career. He credits a number of folks with being inspirations to him and helping him out.

    Cats like rats. Time to let rat go?

    Leave quietly. Then get your revenge by selling “Pissing Garfield” bumper stickers and decals.

    Wouldn’t that be “Spraying Garfield” decals? I’ve long wondered if Garfield would ever cut loose. His personality makes it seem like has he hasn’t been “cut.”

    Hey, Mr. Davis! Mr. Davis! I wouldn’t mind a dirty BMW!


    Give it up, Cartoon-Boy, and throw yourself on the mercy of the Czar!

    I’ll take a dirty old truck and I don’t care what the color is as long as it’s dirt cheap !

    Nah, Garfield’s been neutered for decades. Open secret.

    And if I recall, when Stephan does an arc like this, it’s usually because he and the rival are, in fact, really good friends…

    I like Garfield. Even within its juvenile silliness, Garfield had an attitude, before Doonesbury or Far Side or Bloom County or Calvin & Hobbes. It changed the way comics were done, mostly for the better.
