I am cat, hear me roar, I am too big to ignore. SNAP! Perhaps I should consider a career change.
1 August 1985
It's shorts weather.
2 August 1985
BARK! Hey, Odie. Come back here. Do that again. I can still hear a little out of this ear.
3 August 1985
Oh yuk! A spider! Hold still, spider, while I squash you with this window. SLAM! tinkle tinkle PLOP! CRASH! KA-BOOM! Rats! Missed it.
4 August 1985
Look what you did to that chair, Garfield, You're too fat. I am not too fat. They just don't make chairs the way they used to. They don't make doors the way they used to either.
5 August 1985
Garfield, you wouldn't be fat if your eyes weren't larger than your stomach. THAT'S JUST AN EXPRESSION!
6 August 1985
Garfield, I'm putting you on a diet. ARRRGH! I know you hate diets. If you can think of a better way to lose weight, I'm willing to listen. Amputate something!
7 August 1985
Ah, there is nothing more refreshing than a leaf of fresh lettuce for the wight conscious. Thank you so much for the delightful diet, Jon. Where are you going? I'm going to die now.
8 August 1985
There's an interesting bit of diet trivia. A pie cut into tiny slices has fewer calories than an entire pie.

10 August 1985
Hey, Garfield! Come here quick! Look, Garfield, the carnival has come to town! Let's go! Whoopty doo. Do you know what I love most about a carnival? the intellectual stimulation? I love the sideshow. Uh, Jon? The fat woman! The rubberman! the dinosaur boy

12 August 1985
How's the coffee? It's a little weak.
13 August 1985
Okay, Mr. Finicky Eater, here's your dinner. What is it? It's Coquille Saint-Jacques garnished with Belgian endive and laced with French truffles. AGAIN?!
14 August 1985
See what you think about my lemonade, Garfield. Needs sugar? Needs sugar.
15 August 1985
16 August 1985
These new sodas are great. They're sugar-free and caffeine-free. And flavor-free.
17 August 1985
Garfield, where are you going? GARFIELD! Well, I hope you feel like a complete idiot. That is a hot dog truck, not a hot dog. I do feel sorta silly. NOW WHAT?! Now for dessert.
18 August 1985
Z HEY! When there's napping to do around here, I'LL do it.
19 August 1985
You're late for dinner, Garfield. I assume you have a good excuse. My morning nap raged out of control.
20 August 1985
Rats. I hate it when this happens to me. Daytime insomnia.
21 August 1985
I FELL ASLEEP ON MY TENNIS RACKET, OKAY?! Oh.
22 August 1985
There must be millions of ants down there. I wonder how you tell the difference between boy ants and girl ants. I guess they didn't have any trouble figuring it out.
23 August 1985
Hey, bug. You're ugly. You're creepy. You're history. SQUIK
24 August 1985
* Eat me. I can't eat you. You're Jon's favorite fern. What are fronds for? I might get in trouble. Aw, come on. Take one little taste. You'll like me. MUNCH CHOMP MUNCH CHOMP GARFIELD! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! Just trying to makeeverybody happy. Thank you.
25 August 1985
Gee, Jon's pancakes sure look good. I'd love to take them from him, but I'm not that kind of guy. But the Caped Avenger is!
26 August 1985
The Lone Ranger has Tonto, the Green Hornet has Kato, and Batman has Robin. The Caped Avenger needs a sidekick too. Then again, I may go this a capella.
27 August 1985
As the new sidekick of the Caped Avenger, you need a neat name. What shall I call you? SLURP Come along, "Slurp".
28 August 1985
Slurp, as the Caped Avenger's sidekick, you need a costume. You've missed the point.
29 August 1985
Okay, Slurp, go out and find a costume befitting the sidekick of the Caped Avenger. Rule number one: never dress better than the hero. slap slap slap
30 August 1985
Here comes my sidekick, Slurp. CRASH! Hey, Slurp, maybe you should cut some eyeholes in your mask.
