Before the sale of PAWS Inc. in August 2019, all of the profits from merchandise went to PAWS In. of which Jim Davis is the CEO and founder. Unlike any other comic strip, Davis decided to personally merchandise his comic strip, rather than waiting for someone to license it out for him. This has led Garfield to be the most profitable comic strip character, only rivaled by Snoopy and other Peanuts characters.
