2 January 1983
BRINNNG! WHAM! BRINNNG!
3 January 1983
I didn't know that you like to dance, Garfield. What are you talking about? I was scratching my back with your toothbrush.
4 January 1983
Good morning, Odie. Hey, get away from Jon's stamp collection! Too late.
5 January 1983
What should do tonight? SPLUT Good idea. I think I'll go sing on the fence.
6 January 1983
OH, NO! FIRE ARROWS! THOCK I'M A GONER! THOCK A CAT ALWAYS GOES DOWN WITH HIS FENCE!
7 January 1983
I can't believe that tacky pack of music haters burned my fence down. The only thing to do is to get right back up there and start singing again. But...somehow it just isn't the same.
8 January 1983
Here he comes...tweedledee, the wonder dummy. Hey, Odie, would you like to play ball? squeak tie tie Hey, Garfield, where's Odie? He's tied up at the moment. dribble dribble dribble
9 January 1983
SLAM Hey, Garfield. I'm home. You're certainly excited to see me. Believe me, inside I'm hopping up and down and shouting with glee.
10 January 1983
So I say to this clerk, "Look, if the whole bunch of bananas is 54 cents, why can't I have one for 6 cents? Don't you want to hear how the story came out? Tell it to your plants.
11 January 1983
Garfield, you seem to be preoccupied this week. Huh?
12 January 1983
Garfield hasn't been listening to me lately, watch this. Hey, Garfield, what say we go to the vet and get you declawed? That would be fine. Case closed.
13 January 1983
I hate it when Garfield ignores me. DARN IT! PAY SOME ATTENTION TO ME! Z I think I'm going to cry.
14 January 1983
Jon, I know I've been ignoring you lately, but I want to say it's not because I don't care for you. It's like my ears hear you, but my brain keeps straying off course. I've just been preoccupied. Enough said. Let's get on with it. Huh?
15 January 1983
16 January 1983
I love it when they entertain me.
17 January 1983
It appears Jon has prepared himself a very nice meal, but something is missing. What could it be? Why, of course... The cat hair!
18 January 1983
Okay, okay, I'll turn the heat up.
19 January 1983
This is my humble abode, my dear. Who were they? Oh, just a couple of animals I'm giving away soon.
20 January 1983
Garfield, sometimes I think you don't like it when I have dates. Absolutely. Dating leads to marriage. Marriage leads to children. And do you know what children do to cats?
21 January 1983
Hey, Jon, what's happening? Eat your breakfast, Garfield. Where's your sense of humor?
22 January 1983
* Isn't that Halley's comet? ZIP! Garfield, did you take my steak? Who? Little ol' me? Look, I don't have your crummy old steak. HEY! I DON'T HAVE YOUR CRUMMY OLD STEAK! I'm going to get you for this, Odie. Burp.
23 January 1983
Playing with a ball of yarn is a great way to get attention. THOCK! GARFIELD! Tah dah.
24 January 1983
Hey, Garfield, there's a lasagna under the bed! Thanks for dusting under the bed for me, Garfield. I hate you.
25 January 1983
WHIRRR! nightie-night, Jon. I hate you.
26 January 1983
Surprise, Garfield! I brought you another rubber mouse. Yippee skip. By the way, what happened to your last one? It was tragic. He was caught and eaten by a rubber cat.
27 January 1983
Surprise, Garfield! I threw your old bed in the trash and got you this new one. What do you think? Z
28 January 1983
Dogs have the world's stupidest toys. Just look at this rubber bone. Simple minds, simple pleasures. It certainly doesn't hold the scintillating intellectual challenge of my fuzzy scratching post wit the springy rubber mouse.
29 January 1983
* ROWR! ARRRGH! THAT WASN'T FUNNY; GARFIELD! Funny is in the eye of the beholder.
30 January 1983
plop! EEEEEEK! I'm almost afraid to ask what happened here.
