    Did you have one of these dolls for your car?

      I remember an early CGI version of one of those things appearing in a mid-90s car commercial, can't remember for the life of me what company it advertised.

          Never had a garfield one, but does anyone remember those plastic hands on a metal strip, that would wave back & forth & had messages printed on them?

              When I lived in Nova Scotia in the 80's and early 90's I used to see them on cars all the time.

              I never had one but my grandpa on my dad's side made me a ceramic Garfield one year for my birthday.

                    i had one where Garfield was mooning. i rocked that in my window in high school. i drove a bug and he didn't fit in the back window to well. so i had him in the driver side quarter window. ended up taking him out because i got tired of the huge blind spot he created.

                    also had ALF and a green alien when i was a kid. but never put them in my car. instead they got put in my front bedroom window

                          I remember having one of those. Wasn't old enough to have a car, so I just stuck it to the windows in the house.

                            I never had that Garfield one. But I do remember the time when 35% of car owners did. I did have a Dominos Noid one though. But that was before I was old enough to even drive.

                              I JUST saw a Gizmo one at FYE last night. They wanted $15 for it.

                              We still have two Garfields in the basement with my Alf hand puppets.

                                It looks somewhat similar to the Gizmo in the Gremlins movie.

                                    I didn't have one of the sticky dolls, but I always really wanted one of the sleeping Garfield phones.
                                    Don't pay any attention to the evil spirited and dead of heart. They're not worth your time.

                                        Nah I was too young to drive when they were around. By the time I was finally old enough to get a car they were gone.
