Garfield

What?! Where?! He did it again.

1 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Oh, Garfield. We're going on a trip, Garfield. So just hop into your new kitty carrier here. OH-NO! Not THE BOX!!! Let me put it to you this way. Before we go on the the trip, one of us is going to have to get into this kittycarrier. Well, why didn't you

Garfield

Guess what, Garfield? While mom and dad're on a week's vacation, we're going to baby-sit for their kitten. Meet Nermal. Wake me in a week.

3 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

I gotta spend a week wet-nursing Nermal, here...he's cute. And I hate "cute". Don't knock it, jack, I make a killing posing for greeting cards.

4 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Okay, Nermal. There's a dog. ...KILL! Oh, Nermal, Nermal, Nermal, Nermal.

5 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

CRUD! Nermal shed all over my food. I can't stand cat hairs unless they're my own.

6 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Take those roller skates off, Garfield. You look ridiculous. -

7 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Nermal's leaving now. Wave bye-bye, Garfield. I kind of liked the little feller. The way I like intestinal flu.

8 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

SPLOOSH! OH-NO! A vicious undertow is dragging me out to sea! I'M TOO YOUNG TO GO! I can see the headlines now..."WORLD FAMOUS CAT LOST AT SEA. MILLIONS OF BEAUTIFUL GIRL CATS GRIEF-STRICKEN!" I can't make it! I'm going down for thethird time!

9 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

YAWN Oh, this looks like a nice place to sleep. If you don't mind, Garfield...

10 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

SACK! PILLAGE! MAIN! DESTROY! BONK! Whimper, limp, cry, hurt, moan...

11 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

It's time to put your leash on for a nice walk. Oh, come on, Garfield. It's not that bad. -

12 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

I know you don't like your leash, Garfield, but people are staring. So cut that out. -

13 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Odie, you know better than that. Do you know what I appreciate about you most, Garfield? I'm housebroken. You're housebroken.

14 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Some people say pets are not clean. That may be so. But try eating your next meal without your hands and see how well YOU fare.

15 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

SMACK MUNCH SLURP CLICK! ZZZ zzz I didn't know cats could eat in their sleep. But I DO KNOW they can't sharpen their claws in their sleep. I shouldn't have pushed it.

16 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Attention, America! I am hereby declaring this week NATIONAL FAT WEEK. This is the week for all you fat people to come out of the closet. Those of you who could get into one, that is.

17 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

This is National Fat Week. I want to hear all you fat people say, "I'm fat, and I'm proud of it!" LOUSER! "I'M FAT, AND I'M PROUD OF IT!" You...the pudgy one in Seattle, I didn't hear you.

18 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Here's a National Fat Week handy fat tip. "Don't exercise." You'll be happier. Have you ever seen a jogger laugh?

19 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Here's a National Fat Week skinny joke. How many skinny people does it take to fill a shower? I don't know. They keep slipping down the drain.

20 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Here's the National Fat Week "weight-height chart". According to this, if you weigh 200 pounds, you should be 6'4". That means if you're under 6'4" you're not overweight, you're undertall.

21 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Well, fat brothers and sisters, this is the last day of National Fat Week. Just remember "Round is Beautiful". Now get out there and eat a chicken franchise.

22 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

CARTOONIST'S NOTE: Today's Garfield strip is to be read only by fat people, or people with fat tendencies, you skinny ones can read the other strips, or jog, or drink a glass of water, or whatever it is skinny people do. ...I wouldn't know. -I am hereby d

Garfield

Be careful there, Garfield. Hanging on the drapes can be very painful. 'CAUSE I'M GONNA BREAK YOUR LEGS IF YOU DON'T GET OFF THEM THIS INSTANT!

24 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

GASP! CHOKE! WHEEZE! Oh no you don't, Garfield. So much for the old !play-sick-and-grab-the-chicken-when-your-owner-calls-the-vet" routine.

25 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

GARFIELD! BREAKFAST! BONK! I did it again. I got up before I woke up.

26 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

wag wag wag STOMP! WAG WAG WAG

27 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

MEYOW Let me guess, you were in the pickled herring again.

28 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Eat up, Garfield. Meyow. It says here this is a "new improved" cat food. munch munch MEYOW!

29 September 1979
 


 
Garfield

Oh, darn! Jon's flower garden got a little over-frolicked.
