In 1978, Garfield was 'born,' created by Jim Davis in a comic strip and since then he has achieved star status, having appeared in comics, television shows and five movies.
He is one cool cat, known for his lazy ways, huge appetite, dieting and dislike of Mondays. He spawned an endless source of merchandise and has proven to be timeless. He is still very popular today so it was no surprise that, when I went looking for a Garfield coffee mug, there was no shortage of choice.
I have chosen to share a fairly recent coffee mug by Westland Giftware. It is a bright yellow, 4-inch tall "spinner" mug. That means that on one side you'll see Garfield lifting his sunglasses up and giving you a look that tells you he's up to no good and on the other side you will find an acrylic Garfield that spins and the wording, "Never Trust a Smiling Cat." I have seen spinner mugs before but not a Garfield one.
Noteworthy is the fact that the spinner on these mugs means that they are not microwaveable nor are they dishwasher proof. However, they are a great novelty gift item and a lot of fun, especially for those of us who grew up with Garfield.
