Garfield Doodle

Garfield is undisputedly one of the best Cartoons/Comics of all time!
Here are some fun facts about Garfield*:

  1. Garfield is based on a real cat. The original, also named Garfield after Davis’ opinionated grandfather, James Garfield Davis, was an overweight, grouchy cat that was one of the 25 cats that roamed the farm Davis grew up on.
  2. In the early days of the strip, before syndication, Garfield wasn’t the focus. He was merely the sidekick to his fictional cartoonist/owner Jon Arbuckle. When Davis realized he gave Garfield all the funny lines, Garfield became the central character, and a star was born.
  3. One of the original syndication affiliates, a Chicago newspaper, decided to drop Garfield and replace him with another comic. After over 1,300 angry fan letters and phone calls, the newspaper reversed its decision and has runthe strip ever since.
  4. The strip holds the Guinness World Record as the most widely syndicated comic strip in the world. It’s presently featured in over 2,600 newspapers around the world.
  5. It is read by an estimated 263 million people every day.

Gertie the Dinosaur

Otto James Messmer (1892 – 1983) was born in West Hoboken, New Jersey, now currently known as Union City, New Jersey. He attended Holy Family Parochial School. Beginning at a young age he had a love of vaudeville and the entertainment industry. He attended the Thomas School of Art in New York City from 1911-1913, and participated in a work-study program with the Acme Agency, where he did illustrations for fashion catalogs along with other projects. Messmer was an American Animator, best known for his work on the Felix the Cat cartoons and comic strip produced by the Pat sullivan studio. Messmer died of a heart attack in 1983 by the age of 91.

Inspiration

Messmer was inspired by Winsor McCay’s animated films, such as How a Mosquito Operates and Gertie the Dinosaur. Because of this Messmer began creating his own comics for local newspapers. His comic strip, Fun, ran as part of the Sunday comics’ page for New York World.

To commemorates the 107th anniversary of “Little Nemo in Slumberland,” a pioneering comic strip by illustrator Winsor McCay, I created a coloring sheet out of his “Gertie the Dinosaur” illustration. Click the above image to download. Enjoy!
