So this is 1981. A brand new year fresh with new promise. Big, fat, hairy deal.
1 January 1981
GOBBLE! GOBBLE! GOBBLE! WHERE'S YOUR DINNER?!! WHERE'S MY DINNER?!! Once my eating gains momentum it's hard to shut down.Just what is a diet? A diet is self-denial. Fortunately, I'm such a swell fellow I haven't the heart to deny myself anything.
2 January 1981
Okay, who ate my socks? GARFIELD!! The guy's some kind of a psychic!
3 January 1981
What's this strange feeling I feel today? I feel like being nice to everyone today! KISS KISS KISS KISS KISS . KISS People don't want nice...people want consistency.

What happened to my favorite record? I scratched it. What happened to the lasagna I fixed for dinner?! I ate it. GARFIELD; WHY IS IT YOU SCRATCH, EAT AND DESTROY EVERYTHING IN SIGHT?! I CAN'T HELP IT! I'M A SLAVE TO MY PASSIONS! CATS!HUMANS! I'm sorry, Ga
11 January 1981
Stand aside, boy. There's lasagna to be eaten! We have an understanding, Garfield and I...I provide the food, shelter, and affection, and he provides the abuse.

16 January 1981
What's with you? Someone switched my eyedrops with the airplane glue. That's terrible! No wonder my model airplane wouldn't stick together.
17 January 1981
We're going for a nature walk, Garfield. Super. Just smell that fresh country air. Sniff...ACHOO! Hark. That's the call of a lesser bittern of the heron family. WAKA, WAKA Waka, smaka. Rolling meadows, lush forests, majesticmountains... Have you ever see

23 January 1981
Oh pooh. Oh goody. Oh pooh. City Pound
24 January 1981
City Pound SLAM! How did I get into this fix? One minute I'm free as a bird, then I'm in the city pound. Where did I go wrong? I'm just a number here. I've almost forgotten what it's like on the outside. IT'S NOT RIGHT TO CAGE A WILDANIMAL! THESE FOUR WAL
25 January 1981
I can't believe it. Me, Garfield, in a dog pound. That's "City Pound." There are cats here too, you know. Arf arf. Oh shut up, fluffy.
26 January 1981
My name's Guido, and this here is my associate, Fluffy. Guido and Fluffy? I've killed for less than that. One of your sensitive-tough types.
27 January 1981
Tell me, Guido. Why is Fluffy here in the city pound? His previous owner encountered considerable difficulty in cultivating Fluffy with the proper hygienic habits. Couldn't be housebroken, huh? Puddle City.
28 January 1981
How long will I have to stay here in the pound? Till your owner comes to pick you up. What if he doesn't come? Then it's curtains for you. Great! I love to sharpen my claws on curtains. How do I break this to him?
29 January 1981
We gotta bust out of this pound. Got any ideas? Why don't we use Fluffy as a battering ram? FLUFFY! BE A BATTERING RAM! Yah. CRASH!
30 January 1981
Thanks for helping me escape from the pound, Guido. No sweat. It's nice to finally be out of trouble. What a relief it is to be returning to the safety and comfort of home. Whatever that is...
