Garfield

Do you know your cat's sitting on my meat loaf? No, but if you hum a couple of bars I'll fake it. This is going to be a long week.

Garfield

See you later, Garfield. I'm going to the grocery store. Very well, you may come along.

5 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

Now, behave yourself in the grocery store, Garfield. I think I just turned a bull loose in a china shop.

6 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

That's the last time I take you to the grocery store, Garfield. I've never been so humiliated in all my life. So I ate the pastry section, big deal.

Darn That was too easy.

When Odie comes by I'm going to round off that pointy head of his. SLURP! How can you win against someone who doesn't even know the rules of the game?

Garfield

I own a cat. And when you own a cat, eating a normal meal takes on an all-new perspective. Knowing that somewhere in there is a cat hair with your name on it.

12 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

I'm going to brush all your loose hair out, Garfield. I suspected as much.

13 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

sweep sweep sweep sweep sweep Garfield, what am I supposed to do with all these cat hairs?! Make yourself another cat. I have the distinct feeling that I was just zinged.

Garfield

SMACK! Good night, Garfield. POOEY! Growing a beard? I ate a milk dud and kissed a cat.

15 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

Dear Garfield, Help! I have cat hairs all over my home. What can I do to keep Fluffy from shedding? Simple. Give the little beggar a good coat of varnish.

Garfield

scratch scratch scratch scratch Uh-oh Just look what you've done to my chair! You should be more considerate of other people's property. Now I know it's natural for cats to sharpen their claws. Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, andcats gotta claw, but do

Garfield

JON! COME QUICK! Look! Garfield is actually playing with Odie! I know. It's cause I sprayed Odie with something. With what? Essence of lasagna.

20 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

You know, maybe there's more to life than just eating and sleeping...maybe I should be more considerate of other people's feelings, nicer to Odie and more generous. Nah.

21 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

Scratching posts, Balls of yarn and rubber mousies are okay. But when it comes to REALLY NEAT playthings... Give me a Christmas tree!

22 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

What would you like for Christmas, Garfield? 100 slave dogs. I'll bet you'd like a nice, fluffy ball of yarn to play with. I think I'll put a piranha in his Christmas stocking.

23 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

HO-HO-HO WHUMP! Let's see, gifts for Jon, Lyman and Odie. Hmmm Oh, yes, and Garfield. How could I ever forget Garfield... Only kid in the world to ask for 20 pounds of lasagna.

Garfield

I love Fridays. The end of a long work week, the beginning of a weekend filled with relaxation, TV sports and parties. Almost makes me wish I had a job.

29 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

This year I resolve to be nicer to dogs. Maybe I'll cut down on lasagna instead.

30 December 1978
 
 
     
Garfield

It's time to make a new year's resolution, Garfield. I resolve to lose weight and start exercising this year. What am I saying? I must be going waka-waka! I'm NOT going to diet! ... I'm NOT going to exercise! I'M FAT, I'M LAZY,AND I'M PROUD *OF* IT! Where
