United Feature Syndicate, Inc. 1978 Garfield the Cat "This is the Only Alarm Clock"

$ 10.00

A Garfield drink mug made for McDonald's by Anchor Hocking featuring Garfield on one side holding his belly with the thought bubble "This is the Only Alarm Clock I Need to Set" and the other side has Garfield running with the thought bubble "The Early Cat Gets the Hotcake"  The mug measures 3 1/2" tall and a rim diameter of 3 1/8".  The bottom is impressed with the Anchor Hocking logo.  The condition is pristine.

During the 1970s and 1980s, McDonald's offered promotional items to its customers with the purchase of a happy meal.  Jim Davis' Garfield mugs were good quality glass made by Anchor Hocking and sported quality graphics.  So far, I have seen the following mugs and will update if I come across new ones:

  1. Side 1:  "The Early Cat Gets the Hotcake" and Side 2:  "This is the Only Alarm Clock I need to Set."
  2. Side 1:  "Such a Beautiful Sunset...and Me Without a Horse" and Side 2:  "I've Never Seen a Sunrise...I'm Waiting for the Movie."
  3. Side 1:  "Use Your Friends Wisely."
  4. Side 1:  "Whoever invented evenings probably invented teddy bears too." and Side 2:  "I'd like mornings better if they started later."
  5. Side 1:  "I never met a dinner I didn't like." and Side 2:  "And what will you fellas have for breakfast."
  6. Side 1:  "I'm not one who rises to the occasion."
  7. Side 1:  "It's not a pretty life but somebody has to live it."
  8. Side 1:  "I'm easy to get along with when things go my way."
