Garfield Playland Vancouver

Twenty-eight years ago, the marketing team for PlayLand at the PNE went all out and spent top dollars on licensing and animators needed to create a commercial featuring Garfield and his friends Odie and Nermal.

The 1986 animated commercial of everyone’s favourite orange tabby cat and his friends visiting and enjoying PlayLand was likely part of a major marketing strategy ahead of Expo ’86 and the onslaught of competition it would bring for that year.

The World’s Fair at False Creek was held from May 2 to October 13, during Playland’s annual season.
