Was Garfield ever good, in your opinion?

And is it true that Garfield was always meant to be a cashcow?

Comic strip: Funny for a while, then not funny for a while, & then funny for a while again.
Cartoon: Always funny.
Movies: Never watched them.

IIRC, Jim Davis himself said flat-out in an interview that Garfield was meant to be a cash-cow.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

The only funny Garfield is the version of the comics where Garfield is replaced with a realistically drawn cat that does not move, emote, or think. It's the best version of Garfield Minus Garfield in my expert opinion.
I believe in second chances, and that's why I believe in you.

I like the version of Garfield where it's just Jon alone.

I used to read some Garfield but I was more into Peanuts growing up. I related more to Peanuts, which I think is natural anyway.
