Paws Incorporated, legally known as Paws, Inc., is an American comic studio and production company founded by American cartoonist Jim Davis in 1981[1] to support the Garfield comic strips and its licensing. The company was originally located in Davis' home state of Indiana. Its building was established in Muncie in 1989, relocated from Davis' own farm when he was a boy.[2]

In 1994, the company purchased all rights to the classic Garfield comic strips from 1978 to 1993 from United Feature Syndicate, although United still holds the original black-and-white daily strips and original color Sunday strips. The full-color daily strips and recolored Sunday strips are copyrighted to Paws as they are considered a different product. The strip is currently distributed by Universal Uclick, while rights for the strip remain with Paws, Inc. By 2015, the company employed almost fifty artists and administrators.[3]

In 2019, Viacom acquired Paws, Inc., including global merchandising and existing licensees and put it under its Nickelodeon banner (which itself is part of Viacom's Kids & Family division).[4] The deal excluded the rights to the five Garfield feature films from 2004 to 2009, which are still owned by The Walt Disney Company through its 20th Century Studios label.[4] Although Paws, Inc. is now effectively located in Manhattan, Davis will continue to draw the comic strips in Indiana for newspapers and Universal Uclick.[5]
