Bit of controversy here in the office around terminally cute **Nermal ** from the Garfield cartoon (I know… I’m as embarrassed together I need to be about this).

You are watching: Is nermal a boy or girl

I’ve always thought Nermal was a little cute boy kitten, however several coworkers think that a girl.

In the old cartoon TV series, it to be voiced by a girl… yet in the movie, Nermal was an adult siamese voiced by a guy.

Anyone right here on my side? has actually this ever before been answered?


Nermal’s a boy. With eyelashes*. He’s quite effeminate, though, no he? ns think it’s component of his “cute” schtick. Boys aren’t “cute” in general unless they have actually girly characteristics, otherwise they’d it is in “macho”, or something.

ETA: Garfield was completely my kinda humour when I to be under 6 years old. Ns remember very clearly Garfield introduce to Nermal together a that on many occasions, which is the just reason ns say it with any type of amount the certainty. See below for why the stood out to me.

This really threw mine perception of truth off balance at 4 years old; ns differentiated between the sexes v the solid belief that just girls had actually eyelashes, while guys did not.

I always thought Nermal was a girl yet I’m pretty sure pronoun usage in the comic itself makes Nermal the end to it is in a boy.

Check it. Nermal’s a boy.


Yeah, he constantly struck me together the cat tantamount of among those Victorian boys with fancy clothes and also long golden locks and also a giant lollipop whose parents never let them exterior to play.

If that provides sense.


Gadarene:

Yeah, he always struck me together the cat identical of among those Victorian boys with an intricate clothes and also long golden locks and a gigantic lollipop whose parents never ever let them external to play.

If that makes sense.

I think that’s dubbed the little Lord Fauntleroy getup.

And ns agree.


I always thought Nermal was a girl.

So walk I. This id was justified when I heard the voice that Nermal on Garfield and Friends. It to be now evidenced when I checked Wikipedia and found the voice the Nirmal is a girl.


I came in right here to express my think on how stupid a concern that was and also to state the Nermal is obviously a girl.

I’ll more than here eating my pie. Bring on.


Nermal is a boy’s name. The reason why I know this is since a previous coworker called her child that. She to be from India and also was not acquainted with Garfield. She was extremely offended once someone said her.


Mainly ns think Garfield is the many consistently, abominably unfunny mainstream cartoon; ns can’t recognize why anyone cares about it enough to ask a question.

Evidence points come the runt being a male.

My favourite Garfield: garfield minus garfield: Archive

Uh, i beg your pardon one? There are dozens.

I constantly thought Nermal to be a cossetted boy cat.


Check it. Nermal’s a boy.

This is the critical response, because it comes from the main Garfield net site. I like the final paragraph of the Nermal text:


Trivia: on the Garfield tv show, Nermal’s voice was done by a female, causing fan man over even if it is he was a young or girl kitten."

That’s harsh- there are dozens of mainstream comics equally unfunny as Garfield, yet with less kid appeal- Broom Hilda, Beetle Bailey, Marmaduke,Hi and also Lois, Momma,etc… Id favor to see someone controversy that any kind of of this is an ext funny than the others,with instances of the “more funnyness”

So walk I. This id was justified as soon as I heard the voice the Nermal ~ above Garfield and Friends. It was now confirmed when I checked Wikipedia and found the voice the Nirmal is a girl.

So room the voices the Bart Simpson, Ralph Wiggim, Todd Flanders, Database, Kerney and Nelsen Muntz—all voiced through Nancy Cartwright
