The great Garfield gender debate ends after Wikipedia edit war


Garfield’s first appearance was on June 19, 1978. Garfield was created by Jim Davis. Garfield is a tabby cat. Garfield is male. These are all things you will learn about Garfield at first glance of the Wikipedia page “Garfield.” 

But what you don’t learn is the story behind why there are four cited sources for the cartoon cat’s gender.

It all started when Twitter user, and Chapo Trap House podcast member, Virgil Texas found an old Jim Davis interview from Mental Floss that seemed to indicate that Garfield has no gender.
