Why, hello there. I'm lost. Aren't you cute! Can you give me directions! Run along now, Kitty. What did I do?
1 February 1981
So what if I'm lost. Big deal. I can handle it. Cats are adventurous. Cats are independent. Cats are strong... I WANT MY TEDDY BEAR!
2 February 1981
It should be no problem finding my way home. Cats have a natural homing instinct. My instinct tells me to go that way. BONK!
3 February 1981
FOOD! I GOTTA HAVE FOOD! Health Food Store FOOD! I GOTTA HAVE FOOD!
4 February 1981
Boy, am I beat. I must've walked two blocks today. It will be nice to get home. I miss my chew bone, my chew toy, And Odie, my chew dog.
5 February 1981
I guess I'll have to hitchhike home. Fortunately for me, I have something most other cats don't. Thumbs.
6 February 1981
GARFIELD! WELCOME BACK! I'm starved. You must be starved. I'll get some food. Home is where they understand you.

MY FEET! WHERE ARE MY FEET?! Maybe I could stand to lose a pound or two.
9 February 1981
Garfield, you won't say you're fat... But you have more chins than a Hong Kong telephone directory! -
10 February 1981
I wish Jon wouldn't kid me about my weight. I'm a very sensitive person. Et tu, chair?
11 February 1981
My, my, a chocolate covered peanut. RIP! I think I need a bigger cat suit.
12 February 1981
Sorry about that.
13 February 1981
GARFIELD! DINNER! I appreciate your promptness, Garfield... BUT, NEXT TIME, OPEN THE DOOR! Oops.
14 February 1981
Watch out, Metropolis. Garfield is in town. This is my night to howl. AROOO Hey, baby, what's happenin' Buzz off, creep. arooooo Hi there, how about a kiss? Don't do me no favors. How about you and me. Pack it in, jack. aroooo.
15 February 1981
Uh-oh. It's diet time. Let's diet together, Garfield. That would be more fun. How does the old proverb go? "Misery loves company".
16 February 1981
Welcome to the first day of your diet, Garfield. Through self-denial, you will realize a slimmer, more self-assured you. I THINK I'M GONNA DIE!
17 February 1981
I shall now attempt to eat a lunch consisting of one leaf of lettuce. Lightly seasoned with... One quart of mayonnaise! BLOP
18 February 1981
Dieting is easy when you set your mind to it. I no longer crave food. IT'S THE CALORIES I CRAVE!
19 February 1981
I gotta get off this diet!
20 February 1981
Zowie! A picture of lasagna! RIP! Not too bad except for the staples. ptooey
21 February 1981
SNAP! I love static electricity. scuff scuff scuff scuff POP! SCUFF SCUFF SCUFF SCUFF SCUFF POW I hate static electricity.
22 February 1981
BRINNNNG! I love to wake up early. The earlier you set your alarm, the longer you can oversleep.
23 February 1981
It's yawn and crick time. YAWN CRICK!
24 February 1981
Eat your food, Garfield. No, It's youkky. How would you like to go to bed without dinner? Somehow, that psychology doesn't seem to work on Garfield.
25 February 1981
Why do people love teddy bears? It's for their don'ts... They don't eat your food. They don't dance with your date and they don't trump your ace lead.
26 February 1981
I wonder what grandiose dream Garfield is having right now. -
27 February 1981
Have you ever seen such a sad movie in all your life, Garfield? Maybe I'm too hardened. Maybe I'm too cynical... But I wasn't that moved by "Flipper Gets The Ick".
