Garfield & friends are featured on this fun piece of vintage advertising - a Garfield McDonald’s coffee mug that says, “I’m Not One Who Rises to the Occasion. ” Odie (of course!), Nermal, Arlene, & Pooky are the ones joining Garfield for a day of fun.
The heavy clear glass mug features Garfield the cartoon cat by Jim Davis & Garfield’s friends. Garfield & friends sitting on a see saw span the sides of the mug. Odie, Nermal, Arlene, & Pooky are on one side of the seesaw with Garfield on the other saying, “I’m not one who rises to the occasion.”
Under the see saw is the McDonalds logo. “Jim Davis” is under Garfield’s side of the see saw. Underneath all is “Garfield Characters: © 1978, 1979, 1980 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.”
It measures 3 1/2" (8.9 cm) tall and has a 2 3/4" (7.0 cm) diameter mouth. From handle tip to the opposite edge of the cup measures 4” (10.2 cm).
This Garfield mug is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips, or repairs. The design is fully intact, clear, and bright.
The Garfield characters pictured on this mug are:
Garfield – lasagna loving orange cat – main character of the comic by Jim Davis
Nermal – “world’s cutest kitten”
Odie – Garfield’s best friend
Arlene – lovely pink cat – Garfield’s girlfriend
Pooky – Garfield’s teddy bear
During the 1970s & early ‘80s McDonald’s offered Garfield promotional items to their customers. We have some of the others they offered, and once listed, they can be seen here: https://www.artyah.com/browse?FullTextQuery=Garfield%20the%20Cat&Seller=4Get-Me-NotTreasures
