Garfield found Pooky in a dresser drawer.
Pooky allows Garfield to show his other side. He’s a teddy bear extraordinaire: cuddly, understanding, and always there when Garfield needs him. Plus, he never tries to hog Garfield’s blanket or food. Garfield likes that.
In the original Pet Force book series, Pooky became the superhero Compooky.
