I believe you're gaining weight, Garfield. I believe your eyeballs are shrinking. Look at that soft belly. That's just water retention. Now why do you suppose you're looking larger? An optical illusion? The older you get', the biggeryou get. Bigger-boned
1 July 1984
I have this nagging feeling I'm forgetting something. WHUMP! Oh yes, I forgot I kicked Odie into next week, last week.
2 July 1984
Pooky loves me, I can tell. He doesn't talk, he doesn't walk, he doesn't think. a little nothing goes a long way.
3 July 1984
I'm working up a routine for the fence tonight, Pooky. Tell me what you think of it. I knew a teddy bear who was so ugly, even the tide wouldn't take it out. BLAT!
4 July 1984
Good evening, ladies and germs. I'd like you to meet Pooky, my gag writer. SPLAT Welcome to the show biz, kid.
5 July 1984
Jump through the hoop, Pooky. Hey, Garfield, what's happening? I'm pretending to teach Pooky tricks. -

Butterflies are versatile. They can caress the air. They can kiss the dew from the flowers. And they can embed themselves in radiators. FWAP!
7 July 1984
scritch scritch I'll be darned. These labels are loose. * It's the old "Cats get the tuna while the owner get the cat food" gag. Surprise, Garfield! I fixed us a tuna noodle casserole. Oh, well, I guess a half a surprise is betterthan none at al
8 July 1984
Garfield, I know you hate mondays. But everything that could possibly happen to you has already happened. Au contraire, power failure breath.
9 July 1984
Since we can't watch TV during a power failure, Garfield, what say we listen to the radio? Ha ha! Do I feel stupid. That's because you ARE stupid. CLICK CLICK How about a game of cards? No, thanks. I'm just going to sit here and cry for awhile.
10 July 1984
I've learned something from this power failure, Garfield. When you are deprived of your eyesight, isn't it amazing how much keener your other senses become? Huh?
11 July 1984
Don't worry, Garfield. The power failure may have spoiled the food in the refrigerator... But we still have lots of canned goods. Now where's our electric opener? ARRRGH!
12 July 1984
Hey, Garfield, as long as the power is off, we might as well go out. I have my bowling ball. Let's go bowling. Get your fingers out of my eyes and your thumb out of my mouth, and I'll consider it.
13 July 1984
Great! The power's back on! I can't think of anything worse than a power failure. How about two power failures?
14 July 1984
Z Z BABOOM! SHOOP ZOOM Allright you guys, get out of here. It's only a little thunderstorm. Pets...they're just like kids. CRACK KABOOM! Urf! Give me some room, will you? Hey! Your feet are cold!
15 July 1984
And now, a word from our sponsor. Hey, America. Here's a cat food we bet your cat will love. You're on.
16 July 1984
Good morning, old buddy. ARRRGH! That's only a piece of lint, Garfield. It sure does a great spider impression.
17 July 1984
BARK! BARK! BARK! Odie isn't really stupid. BONK He's just chased one too many parked cars.
18 July 1984
Okay, you turkeys, I'm prepared for anything. * AROOO * CRASH!
19 July 1984
Garfield, if you mess with my new fish, you'll regret it. What's so regrettable about a little seafood snack? Jon's going to pay for this.
20 July 1984
Well, well, Odie. I see you derive great pleasure from other's misfortune. So do I! SNAP!
21 July 1984
Garfield, where are yoooooou? Get out of the breadbox, Garfield! Get out from under the chair, Garfield! Garfield, you know I hate it when you hide from me! Oh, well. I'll find him sooner or later. There's only so many places a fatslob like him can hide.
22 July 1984
You sleep too much, Garfield. Sometimes I do feel bad about sleeping so much. What with all the insomniacs in China.
23 July 1984
What Odie needs is a good kick. Uh-oh! Nap attack! I don't even want to know. Z
24 July 1984
Z Z SNORT! SNORT! Z
25 July 1984
Z Z Whimper No, Odie, Garfield isn't dead. He's just a hardcore sleeper.
26 July 1984
Are you going to sleep all day, Garfield? Let me check my social calendar. Let's see...there's high tea with the Queen of England tomorrow, but nothing today. Z Ask a stupid question...
27 July 1984
YAWN What a great night's sleep! I'm ready to attack a fresh new day. Good evening, Garfield. What's on the late movie?
28 July 1984
Good morning, Garfield. I'm hungry. How would you like your egg prepared? I would like it hatched. Raise it to young chickenhood on a diet of cracked corn, barley and sorghum molasses. Then barbecue the dude.I should think a steak sauce and honey glaze wo
29 July 1984
There's only one way to beat the heat today. Where are you going, Garfield? To the beach. Hello, beach.
30 July 1984
There's only one thing I hate about the beach. PONK! It's always so crowded.
