The Star Press of Muncie, Ind., marked today’s 30th anniversary of “Garfield” with a story interviewing Paws Inc. staffers.
Paws Inc. — founded by “Garfield” creator Jim Davis — is the Indiana-based company where the cat comic is produced and licensing operations are headquartered.
John Carlson’s Star Press story says employees seem happy at Paws, with one indication being that a number of staffers have worked there for decades.
