Garfield is a comic strip created by Jim Davis. Published since June 19, 1978, it chronicles the life of the title character, the cat Garfield (named after Davis' grandfather); his owner, Jon Arbuckle; and Arbuckle's dog, Odie. As of 2007, it was syndicated in roughly 2,580 newspapers and journals, and held the Guinness World Record for being the world's most widely syndicated comic strip.
Long Jon Arbuckle was Jon Arbuckle's ancestor during the American Revolution. The locals believed he was a traitor , in truth he was a spy for General Washington during the latter's days as a surveyor.
The Guy of Her Dreams is an episode from the seventh season of Garfield and Friends. Penelope Pussycat gets frustrated with Garfield's behavior at their dates and she imagines him as the perfect male for herself.
