Jonathan Quentin "Jon" Arbuckle is the main human character from the Garfield comic strip by Jim Davis. He is present in all branches of the Garfield franchise except a few video games. He and Garfield provide most of the dialogue on a regular basis, though he is one of the only characters whose dialogue is in speech bubbles. He has a very large family, especially consisting of uncles and aunts. Jim Davis based much of himself onto Jon Arbuckle, such as that Jon has the same birthday as Jim Davis, and is also a cartoonist like him.
