He was known professionally as Moe Howard, an actor and
comedian best remembered as the leader of The Three

a cat named Garfield, after Davis’ grandfather, his owner, Jon Arbuckle, and Jon’s
dog Odie. As of 2007, it was syndicated in roughly 2,580 newspapers and journals,
and held the Guinness World Record for being the world’s most widely syndicated
comic strip. Though rarely mentioned, Garfield is set in Muncie, Indiana, the home
of Jim Davis.
