This collection of products includes Garfield's teddy bear, Pooky! Why does Garfield love Pooky so much? Pooky allows him to show his softer side. He's a teddy bear extraordinaire: cute, cuddly, understanding and always there when Garfield needs him. Plus, he never tries to hog Garfield's blanket or food. Garfield found Pooky in a dresser drawer in the comic strip that appeared on October 23rd, 1978.
