For those who don't know---
The artist who draws Garfield has a long tradition of helping Scouting. JSP's
at Jamboree from his hometown area had Odie and Garfield on them, as just one
These agreements are very carefully considered. I was at NELC when such
considerations were occurring and the decision that if Garfield can become a
Cub ANYONE can be a Cub and not be embarrassed by it were part of the
decision making process that I overheard.
And in my opinion, there are few other cartoon characters you could find who
are popular now, funny to this generation, and interesting to the youth of
Cubbing age. I would say the choice was a good one.
If Garfield has a few bad habits, point me to the Scout or Scouter who
doesn't have a few of their own....
