21 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

GARFIELD! LUNCH TIME! I hate it when my feet go to sleep.

22 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Frank, meet Garfield. Hi, Garfield. ROWRRRR! Some people rub me the wrong way.

23 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Let's talk about dogs...what are dogs? Are they vegetable or mineral?

24 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Garcon, I'll have the escargot and truffles for an appetizer, then the duck a l'orange flambe and some cappuccino. Eat up, pal. Talk about lowering one's sights...

25 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

26 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Let's tighten that leash, Garfield. I hate leashes. FFT! ROWR! Don't worry, Garfield. Some kind passer-by will untie us. Uh, sir? Pardon me ma'am...hey you there... uh... SLAM Hi, Jon. Hi, Lyman. What took you so long? I had todrag myself home with my lip

27 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Morning, Liz. Jon here. I'm bringing Garfield in for a checkup today. I know you've been wanting to get to know me better, so why don't you make it a late appointment and we'll go to dinner afterward. Jon...Jon Arbuckle.

28 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Hi, doctor? Remember me? Jon? Your knight in shining armor? Oh yes, I remember. Names escape me, but I never forget a twit.

29 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

In order to become a veterinarian, you must have a good mind for a woman. I have a good mind for a man. You also have a great boy for a man.

30 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

How about a date, Liz? Could you make it through the night if I said no? Yes. No. When it comes to slow wits, Jon is a genius.

31 January 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Say, "Ah," Garfield. I'll take your temperature if you don't say, "Ah". Ah.

1 February 1980

4 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Here's a picture of Garfield at the zoo. Here's Garfield sitting next to a very rare $200 parrot. Here's a picture of me shelling out 300 bucks for Garfield's lunch.

5 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Help yourself, Garfield. Would you like a little coffee in that sugar?

Garfield

POOMP! Oops. I crunched Jon's antenna. A little more to the right, Garfield.

9 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Watch this. I'm going to swing down on this vine and swoop up Jon's chicken. YANK YANK SWOOP! Where did the vine come from?

10 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Guess what, Garfield? This week we're going to visit dad and mom on the farm. Yipee skip. I think I'll call in sick this week.

11 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

There's only one thing you have to remember when we get to the farm, Garfield. Watch where you step. Let me out.

12 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Hi, dad. Welcome hom, city boy. Hi, mom. EAT, EAT, EAT, EAT. Well, shucky darn and slop the chickens, I think I'm going to like it here.

13 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

EAT, EAT, EAT. Mom, is that all you can say? "Eat, eat, eat"? You should meet some nice girl, settle down, have a family. Pass the mashed potatoes. EAT, EAT, EAT.

14 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

How's Garfield adjusting to the farm? OINK! You mean, how's the farm adjusting to Garfield.

15 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I'm glad we visited the farm, dad. Yup. It's nice to get away from it all. Yup. Way, way, wayyyy away.

This would be a good morning for a brisk walk. To the food dish.

18 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

CLACK! Life wasn't half as much fun before I got my yo-yo bone.

19 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

The caped avenger sees an evil dog. The caped avenger springs into action. The caped avenger hurts himself.

20 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

SWIPE! Thanks, Garfield. I hate to lick stamps. Bluh, bluh.

21 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

We're having lasagna for dinner tonight, Garfield. PLTOOEY! What say I bake it first. What say.

22 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I could use a good back walk, Garfield. This is great. You'd make someone a good wife. NO CLAWS! NO CLAWS!

23 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

It's not the having, it's the getting.

24 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You're too fat, Garfield. I'm putting you on another diet. He makes me so mad. If I could have gotten up on that chair, I would have given him the beating of his life.

25 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Here's a carrot for your diet, Garfield. You know what to do with it. I certainly do. Here, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit.

26 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I know you're unhappy, Garfield, but I wouldn't have to put you on diets if you wouldn't eat so much. I can't help it. I have a glandular condition... An overactive mouth gland.

27 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

This diet's a real bummer. I'm getting weaker by the minute. I must be going into cholesterol withdrawal. That's when you have the urge to make a highball out of bacon grease.

28 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

B-R-R-R-R Awwww, poor thing. First you're on a diet, now you're freezing. Where's your blanket? I ate it.

29 February 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You're looking trimmer, Garfield. I'll take you off your diet now. WHEW! POOMP!

1 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Oh no, you don't, Garfield. This chicken leg is mine. Let's hear it it for claws.

2 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Gee, I feel good. I feel like being nice to everybody today. I must be coming down with something.

3 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Heh heh Cats love to play in grocery bags. Darn...no groceries.

4 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

When the newspaper comes each day, I take the editorial page and Jon takes the funnies. HA! HA! HA! HA! There's no accounting for some people's taste.

5 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

SWIPE! Let me guess...you're hungry. Right on.

6 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Come on , kitty. Sing your song. Doo-da, doo-da.

7 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

OH NO! PUNT! Don't laugh. How would you like to have dog drool all over YOUR teddy bear?

8 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Graceful. Blow it out your ear.

9 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

This looks like it's going to be a good week. Nuts...nuts, nuts, nuts.

Garfield

Garfield, you should learn to play with Nermal. Sure thing. hop hop Let me rephrase that. dribble dribble dribble

13 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Here, Nermal. Do something more constructive with your time. -

14 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Say good-bye to Garfield, Nermal. smack -

15 March 1980

16 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, get your lazy bones out of bed and come to breakfast. scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape scrape

17 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Is that all I am to you? Merely an obstruction in the road of life.

18 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I know you cats are inquisitive by nature, Garfield. And I know this is your home as well as mine... BUT STAY OUT OF MY UNDERWEAR DRAWER!!

19 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Computers...everything is controlled by computers these days. That chicken you ate was even raised by a computer. *b*u*r*p*

20 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Let's go eat, Odie. What say you go formal. With a white tie and tail.

21 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

It's a myth that cats are high-strung. BARK There's a lot of truth in those old myths.

22 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Have a fish, Garfield. GULP PTOOEY THAT WAS AMAZING! I have nimble teeth.

23 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Guess what, Garfield? I'm entering you in a cat show. That should be fun... I'll be dynamite in the swimsuit competition.

24 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You'll have to take a bath before the cat show, Garfield. I'll take my chances. Clean cats are winning cats. The things I do for stardom.

25 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Now let's fluff you up. rrrrrr -

26 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

We need a gimmick for the cat show, Garfield, something to make the judge notice you. This should do it. It's a sad state of affairs when a pet owner stoops to humiliating a cat.

27 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

They'll probably want you to do tricks at the show, Garfield, so hop through this hoop. I could just cry.

28 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Hurry up, Garfield! Time to leave for the cat show. grrr rowr YIP! ROWR! FFT! I could just cry.

29 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

This is it, Garfield, your first cat show. Where do I put my cat? Put him here. -

30 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Is this the cat show? Yes it is. But the DOG show is NEXT week.

31 March 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I'd like to enter Garfield in the cat show. Okay. Hmmm, lesee here, hmmm. I'm sorry, but we don't have a "fat" division. Let me at him!

1 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Hi, what have you got there? This is Monarch, a registered ruddy abyssinian. He's in the grand champion division with 1400 CFA points...what's that? This is Garfield. He's...uh sort of yellowish orange and he's got stripes. I've neverbeen so embarrassed.

2 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Cat shows are disgusting. Imagine, pitting one cat another on a physical basis. This is all so phony. Judge

3 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Cat Show Darned if my competitive nature didn't get the best of me again.

4 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

And the winner of the household cat division is... GARFIELD! Congratulations, Garfield! Did you ever think you could win a cat show? Does a baby go goo?

5 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I've solved the case, captain. The murderer is... We interrupt this program to tell you there's a thunderstorm coming into the area. How dare they break into my favorite TV show for a weather report! I'm calling the station to givethem a piece of my mind!

6 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

BONK! Garfield hates mondays. I hate mondays.

7 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You're great, Garfield. You're warm, furry, cuddly, and... If you say "cute" I'll scratch your eyes out.

8 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I think I'll step into the next room and have a nervous breakdown.

9 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

What's warm and fun to lie in... And must be chased, but can't be caught? -

10 April 1980

12 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Leave that chicken leg alone, Garfield. It's mine. SMACK! WHACK! SPLAT! It's things like this that tend to diminish my enthusiasm for a cat.

13 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Uh-oh, Garfield wants in! tap tap WHAM! WHAM! WHAM! When I want in, I want in NOW.

14 April 1980

Television should be more informative. Television should be more intellectually stimulating. I'm going to start a movement for more socially aware TV programming! Just as soon as I'm finished watching "The Beach Creature Annoys SandraDee".

17 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I think you're missing the point of our walks, Garfield. -

18 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Hey there, good-looking. I don't believe I've seen you around here before. Do you believe in love at the first sight? Where have you been all my life?

19 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I'm bored. I'm sick of being cooped up in this house all day. LET ME OUT! I NEED SPACE! -

20 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

How about a date. doc? Okay. Are you going out with me because of my charm, or my good looks? It must be your charm. Bingo.

21 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You're not going to stand me up again, are you, doc? Really...why are you going out with me? You amuse me. I'll settle for that. Don Juan dazzles another love-struck waif.

22 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

This is is great. I have a date with Liz. I'll finally have her all to myself. Just her and me. And kitty makes three.

23 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

What do you have planned for us tonight? First we'll jet to a Hollywood premiere and reception with the stars. Then have an intimate dinner at a posh restaurant followed by an evening of dancing at a private club topped off with bubbly onthe beach at sunr

24 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

What's the movie tonight? The Sludge Monster Meets Vermin Man. Never heard of it. We've seen it eight times. Go Sludge Monster!

25 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Thanks for going out with me tonight, Liz. I'm sorry Garfield came along. He's a little overbearing at times. But, at any rate...I'd like to...uh...it was...I mean...er...uh... Kiss her, you dip.

26 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Stand aside, little lady, I'll stop the traffic for you. HOLD UP! VOOM! My hero.

27 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Face it, Garfield... You aren't the kitten you once were.

28 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I'm making some really great soup for supper, Garfield. Something's wrong here. And now some seasoning... I don't like the sound of this. BATH TIME! I've been duped again!

29 April 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I must speak to Jon about changing the water in my bowl.

3 May 1980

What's happening? I have no urge to shove Odie off the table! I'm losing my touch! I must be having an attack of nice! PUSH With self-control you can conquer anything.

4 May 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Guess who's come to visit? Nermal, the world's cutest kitten. You're so cute it's disgusting! That's true. But it's a cross I'll just have to bear.

5 May 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

How come I've known you a year, Nermal, and you're still a tiny kitten? I think small. And the coffee and cigarettes don't hurt.

6 May 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Hee, hee, hee. Here, Nermal. Have a steak. You really trade on cute, don't you? I manage.

Hey, Nermal, do you think you could teach me to be cute, too? Sure. First, open your eyes just as wide as you can. Now lose about 20 pounds. Very funny.

I'm very disappointed of you, Garfield. I can't believe you mugged a girl scout for her cookies. So cancel my good conduct medal. In one ear, and out the other.

5 June 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Oh goody. Here come more girl scouts with more cookies! Rats! They have a Den Mother riding point.

6 June 1980

The jungle cat awakes with a voracious appetite. He instinctively sets out to slay some breakfast. That wasn't very pretty, but it's all part of the food chain.

Garfield

The alley cat scrounges for food. He pokes his head into a promising garbage can. PEEEYEWWW!

The farm cat sets out to patrol his property. He happens upon a plot of fresh catnip. And wakes up the next morning in Atlantic City with a Barbie doll.

The actor cat is being filmed escaping from the enemy. He must leap off a cliff to complete the escape. Which, of course, is done by a stunt dog.

13 June 1980

The house cat has a busy schedule. What with sharpening claws. And seeing his owner off on a big night.

What would you like for your birthday, Garfield? Another nine lives. How about a ball of yarn? How about not? What if I keep you in kitty sweaters? What if I keep you in stitches?

16 June 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

In two days I'll be two years old...that's fourteen years in human terms. I can't wait. In another four months I'll be old enough to drive.

17 June 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Tomorrow, I'll be two years of age. That's the human equivalent of fourteen. Cats have it good. Adolescence without acne.

18 June 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Today is my birthday, and I hate birthdays. I'm going to get a surprise party, and I hate surprise parties. SURPRISE, GARFIELD! But I LOOOOVE the attention!

Garfield

I must arm myself against the sludge monster. Ah! A helmet. I should have dumped the sugar out first.

2 July 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You may ask...why do I fear the sludge monster? Not only does it have a bad complexion and dominate the conversation at social gatherings... It also feeds on scratching posts.

Garfield, how would you like to be my attack cat? Me? An attack cat? You'd be my side thwarting danger. I'd be your side thwarting danger. Attacking anyone threatening. Attacking anyone edible.

21 July 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I have constructed a thug-dummy for your attack training, Garfield. KILL! HA-HA-HA HA-HA!

22 July 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Remember, Garfield, you're a vicious attack cat. ATTACK! Your mother wears combat boots.

23 July 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You're an attack cat. Kill the dummy. Kill the dummy. KILL! Wring dummy. Then be more specific.

24 July 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Okay, attack cat, let's say a mugger jumps out of the bushes. A 300-pound mugger with a club. How will we ever protect ourselves? He's not after MY wallet, jack.

25 July 1980

Forget it, Garfield. You'll never make a good attack cat. Oh yeh? Well just let some brute try to mug Jon. I'll give him the hissing of his life.

You're looking a little puny, Garfield. Why don't we go see the lady vet again? Then why don't WE ask the lady vet out again? Than why don't WE get shot out of the saddle again?

Hey, doc, how about another date? I don't know. I don't feel safe about you, big fella. I might yawn myself to death. That put-down gets a 9.8.

Garfield

I'm putting you on a diet, Garfield. You may have whatever you can sip through a straw. SUCK! Back to the drawing board.

4 August 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Do you know what constitutes a diet food? It's not the calories, it's not the protein, it's not the fiber... It's the bland.

5 August 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

How goes the diet, Garfield? Have you lost anything yet? Yes. My sense of humor.

6 August 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Remember, Garfield, one drumstick a day on your diet and that's it. What the... I found a butcher who carries pterodactyl.

7 August 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You'll have to admit, Garfield... Noe that you're on a diet, you're feeling better about yourself. You bet. Aside from the hunger, dizziness and weakness, I'm having a ball.

You're the correct weight... For an aircraft carrier, ha-ha. I shouldn't have said that.

GARFIELD'S HISTORY OF DOGS The world's first dog crawled out of the sea about ten million years ago. But, unfortunately for him... He was immediately nabbed by the world's first dogcatcher.

1 September 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

GARFIELD'S HISTORY OF DOGS Tail wagging was invented by a dog named "Bonzo Wag". He found that tail wagging endeared him to humans. Bonzo also invented slobbering, but that didn't go over so well.

Here's a National Fat Week handy fact... 60% of the people in our nation are involved in some way with the food industry. That's right. Eating is not only fun, it's patriotic!

Garfield

This year, let's celebrate National Fat Week by stamping out fat jokes. Let's face it, fatties... We should be able to stamp out anything we wish.

11 September 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

We fat people are constantly being discriminated against. Airplane and theater seats are too small. Designer clothing is not made in our size. But that's trivial. What this world really needs is a king-size sandbox.

How well I remember the day you were born, sonny. Yessire, you were 5 pounds 6 ounces at birth. That's big for a kitten. I was out of town at the time. Then how do you remember it? I heard the scream.

Garfield

Tell me about my youth, grandpa. You were born in the kitchen of Mamma Leoni's Italian restaurant. You frolicked in the fettucine, rolled in the ravioli and ate all the lasagna in sight. I must have broken some eating records. Not tomention a few health c

Garfield

I'm tired. I think I'll turn in. Aw, come on, grandpa. The night's still young. Let's talk. Let me tell you about the flood of '42. Works every time. Z

Garfield

What the... Why, I'll bet you two are related, aren't you? I can see the family resemblance. Take that back, you walleyed muck sucker.

15 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Z HEY, GARFIELD, LET'S GO JOGGING. SHOOP! AHA! EEEYOUCH! This is one of those times when I should have considered the consequences of my actions.

16 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Grandpa? What was I like when I was little? Okay...what was I like when I was YOUNG? Let me tell you...

17 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Tell me, grandpa, how's grandma? Looking more like a haddock every day. She could give mean lessons to Attila the Hun. You're not getting along, huh? You might say the honeymoon's over.

18 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Why aren't you and grandma getting along? I married her because she had a figure that wouldn't quit. So? It did.

19 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Did I ever tell you about the great famine of '59? It was sad. Food was so scarce, many people ate their cats. That's disgusting! And you're gullible.

20 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

You kids have it good these days. I remember when I had to walk six miles every day just to chase rats. I don't buy that. Would you believe across the street to spook a chicken?

21 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Goodbye, grandpa. Keep in touch. I'll write soon. CATS CAN'T WRITE! Now you're getting the picture.

22 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Hello? Funny Farm? Do you take pets?

23 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Do you know what I like about cats, Garfield? You're so docile. ROWR! I hate to be pegged.

24 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Oh no! -

25 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

FOOD! Close, but no banana.

26 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I'll be stuck here for the rest of my living days if I don't do something. I guess I'll have to let go and drop to the floor. -

28 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

This table is dusty. ACHOO! Twenty years from now I'll look back on this and laaaaugh.

29 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

There's one cute chicky-boo! She could sharpen her claws on my hassock any time. I wonder if she'd like to go back to the big caterwauling on Elm Street tonight. Well, hello there, Garfield. Oh, hi, Frank.

30 November 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Boy, am I bored. Good morning, Garfield. It's another day just like any other day. Isn't it great? Some people confuse boredom with security.

1 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I need a change. Maybe I'll take up a hobby. Maybe I'll learn a new language. Maybe I'll participate in a sport. Maybe I'll stay bored. It takes less effort.

2 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

flick flick You know you're bored when flicking a lint ball becomes all-consuming.

3 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Every day it's the same boring food, same boring people, same boring routine... rrrr ROWR! FFFT! ...same boring fights.

4 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Do you know where I'm residing? Bored City, that's where. But not for long. With a positive mental attitude I can whip it. I think I'll make a lateral move to self-pity.

5 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I'm bored. ARRRGH That helped.

6 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

CHOMP! GULP GOBBLE PLICK! ODIE!

7 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Somehow, I prefer Garfield in his less affectionate moods.

8 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, I've been thinking... I'm seriously considering having you declawed. Whatever for?

9 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Why would Jon want to have me declawed? A cat without claws is like a bee without a stinger... A porcupine without quills, a shark without teeth, a snake without fangs! I think I see his point.

10 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Granted, declawing a cat may spare the furniture. But it also renders a cat defenseless. Put yourself in my shoes...how would you like to go through life... Knowing somewhere out there is a dog with your name on it.

11 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Some friends of mine and I would like to discuss this declawing idea of yours. Thanks, friends.

12 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, I'm sorry I tried to have you declawed. Let's forgive and forget, okay? BUZZ I'll settle for "forgive".

13 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

OH BOY! CHICKEN! I LOVE CHICKEN! Hold it, Garfield. I don't know how to break this to you. I know it's going to break your heart... But, I'm never letting you have chicken again. You might choke on the bones. OH BOY! HAMBURGERS! ILOVE HAMBURGERS! What? No

14 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I think it's time you met a lady cat, Garfield. And if you're not sure what to do on a date just watch me in action sometime. I have. Make an inuendo, get slapped. Make a suggestion, get slapped. Make a move, get slapped.

15 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Jon says this after shave is supposed to attract women. gallop gallop gallop gallop Darn...wrong species.

16 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

It's time I met a cat of the female persuasion. What took you so long?

17 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

What do they call you? My name's Arlene. And what do they call that space between your front teeth? This relationship is off to a tenuous start.

18 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Wanna eat mice? Wanna beat up dogs? How barbaric. how nauseating.

19 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Tell me, Arlene, what good is that space between your teeth? *** When will I see you again? Next time I want to hail a taxi.

20 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Cats can be broken to the leash if you just hang in there. -

21 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Garfield, would you happen to know what happened to the lasagna I fixed for dinner? * I didn't know you could whistle. I'd tap-dance too if it would change the subject.

22 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Did I ever tell you I'm 29, Garfield? You would have been 30 but you were sick a year. I would have been 30 but I was sick a year. MY KINGDOM FOR A NEW PUNCH LINE!

23 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Why, Garfield Arbuckle...The spirit of Christmas is giving, not receiving. I'll give you this if you don't give me that. Now GIMME! That's the spirit.

24 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

I love Christmas. The parties and the presents... The caroling, the presents. The food, the presents, the decorations, the presents, the fun and the presents. Merry Christmas!

25 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

OH NO! I overslept! I'M LATE! For my nap.

26 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

Oh no! They've raised my electricity bill again! What'll I doo? There's only one thing to do in a case like this... SLEEP ON IT! A real man of action. zzzz

27 December 1980
 
 
   
Garfield

No sweat, sarge. I'll take that machine gun nest out with my trusty bazooka here. So this is what it feels like to be potato salad. Rhett, rhett. Whatever shall I do? Wherever shall I go? Take me to your leader, earthling, or I'llatomize your face. That
