I’m guessing that when most people think of the state of Indiana, the first image that comes to their head is one of seemingly endless cornfields.

Creator, Jim Davis went to college in Muncie, Indiana and based his famous comic strip and cartoon series, Garfield there. The house of Garfield’s bachelor owner Jon Arbuckle is located in Muncie.
