Well, Garfield, that's the last time the Hamiltons ever ask us over. I hope you learned a lesson from this evening. I sure did. Never sharpen your claws on a water bed.

Have you ever noticed how much some people look like their pets, Garfield? Hee hee Hee HA-HA-HA ha -

Guess who's come to visit us this week, Garfield? NERMAL! The world's cutest kitten. You're testing me, aren't you?!
3 December 1979

4 December 1979
How cute! hop hop hop BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Somehow, Garfield, your grasp of "cute" is a little shaky.
5 December 1979
scratch! scratch! scratch! scratch! There's one nice thing about having another cat around the house. NERMAL!
6 December 1979
I'm tired of competing with that Nermal. I think I'll give him a good pounding today. Where is that little fuzzball= He could be anywhere. -
7 December 1979
It's time we determined who's master of this household. SMACK! How did he do that? ***
8 December 1979
Would you like to come in, Garfield?
9 December 1979

BAT BAT ZIP! I'll lay you ten to one I'm here till saturday.
17 December 1979
What a bummer. Here I am wrapped up in a window blind. Just bump in the road of destiny, just a hump on the camel of fate, just a lump in the throat of misfortune. Hey! You DO have to suffer to write!
18 December 1979
If I expand the muscles in my body, maybe I can burst my way out of this blind. DRAT! I forgot. What muscles?
19 December 1979
I was afraid of that.
20 December 1979
Hey, Garfield. What are you doing up there? In a world full of idiots, I get the grand high llama.
21 December 1979
Let me get you out of that blind, Garfield. -
22 December 1979
Uh-oh! Here comes Jon! The perfect crime. Oh, Garfield. Have you perchance, seen my chicken?
23 December 1979
Just one bite of chicken and that's it, Garfield. If you swallow, I'll tie a knot in your neck.
24 December 1979
Whatever your beliefs, the Christmas season represents peace, love and charity among people everywhere. Merry Christmas and season's greetings. Sometimes I'm so sentimental I could just kiss myself.
25 December 1979
I froze a special treat for you, Garfield. Oh, goody. Cat food on a stick.
26 December 1979
It's true cats always land on their feet. The things I do for this strip.
27 December 1979
Spiders are curious insects to see. Their webs are really neat. But how do they weave them elaborately, When all they have is feet?
28 December 1979
Garfield and I can actually communicate. Watch this... Would you like to take a bath, Garfield? Garfield says "no".
29 December 1979
CRASH! GARFIELD! YOU BROKE MY FERN!! I RAISED THAT FERN FROM A FROND! WHAT DID THAT FERN EVER DO TO YOU?!! Why, I have a notion to...uh...to I...uh. You're so cute. Like putty in my paws.
30 December 1979
This year I resolve to lose weight... To be nicer to dogs... And to sprout wings and fly.
