    Garfield Delivery Robot Spotted in West Hollywood

    Guess what we spotted cruising around WeHo? It’s Garfield in the form of a delivery robot riding down Santa Monica Boulevard. Garfield, who loves sleeping, and being mean to Odie, is delivering food to WeHo locals, so keep an eye out. We hope there’s a piping hot lasagna inside.

    The newly revamped delivery robot by Server Robotics promotes the upcoming film, Garfield, voiced by actor Chris Pratt. Roughly three Garfield deliver robots were reported today (we can confirm that there are two).

    In the upcoming film, the world-famous, Monday-hating, lasagna-loving indoor cat is about to have a wild outdoor adventure after an unexpected reunion with his long-lost father – scruffy street cat Vic who is voiced by Samuel L. Jackson. Garfield and his canine friend Odie are forced out of their perfectly pampered life to join Vic in a hilarious, high-stakes heist.

    Garfield has been around since 1976 and was the comic strip created by Jim Davis. Garfield had 12 TV Specials and won four Emmys and was nominated a total of 12 times. He’s had 4 tv shows (one in development) and now 4 major motion pictures.  Garfield still holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip.

    According to his fictional vio, Garfield is an orange cat belonging to Jon Arbuckle. He was born on June 19, 1978 (the day the first Garfield strip was published), in the kitchen of Mamma Leoni’s Italian Restaurant. Jim Davis named Garfield after his grandfather, James Garfield Davis. As a kitten, he develops a taste for lasagna, which would become his favorite food. Because of his large appetite, the owner of Mamma Leoni’s has to choose between giving away Garfield or closing down his restaurant; so Garfield is sold to a pet shop. Garfield is adopted from the store by Jon Arbuckle on August 19, 1978.

    Garfield frequently gets into many adventures, such as getting stuck in roll-up shades, sparring with mice, and getting locked up in animal shelters.

    On Garfield’s 25th anniversary in 2003, several strips were featured in which he interacted with his 1978 version. In 2005, Garfield and Jon appeared in several comic strips of Blondie in honor of their 75th anniversary. There was an earlier Blondie crossover on the Garfield strip published April 1, 1997, and vice versa, as part of the comic strip switcheroo.

    We are well into the 21st century and as we go on, robots are going to become more & more common place in our lives. Considering our past it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they would soon end up plastered with advertisements. Next we should expect to see robots and drones dedicated to the task of advertising, pestering us in the very near future.
