This is great. What did mom used to say about sleeping in laundry baskets? Ah, yes..."My son, sleep only in the clean laundry".

This mirror should shame Garfield into losing some weight. Why, thank you for the charming and witty dinner companion, Jon. You can't shame a shameless cat.

Are you ready for this, Garfield? TAH-DAH ARRGH! Are you all right? Next time warn me before you get ready to play golf?
4 August 1986
Do you know what these are, Garfield. Yes, I do. And do you know what they're for? Of course. I know doggie whackers when I see them.
5 August 1986
I'm going golfing, Garfield. Would you be my caddy? No way! I'm nobody's slave. That's okay. I have somebody else in mind anyway. Hello, caddy. We're all doomed!
6 August 1986
Take my clubs, caddy! Oops. HAR! HAR! WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO NOW? This is surely breaking some pet labor law.
7 August 1986
Fetch the ball, caddy. ODIE! Let's talk. Here comes the gounds keeper, and, yes, I believe he's carrying a gun.
8 August 1986
Bring my bag, caddy. OH-NO! WHERE ARE MY CLUBS?! Back where I decided to lighten the load.
9 August 1986
Ready...aim. * Arch toast snatcher, Garfield the cat, prepares to ply his trade. TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK ZIP! TOING! TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TOING! CLANG!
10 August 1986
SPLUT WHAP! WHAP! WHAP! WHAP! What was that all about? I'm training you guys to hate mondays too.
11 August 1986
Maybe I should cut down on coffee. It's starting to keep me awake. I must have tossed and turned for three minutes last night.
12 August 1986
SLUCK DONK! Nothing spoils lunch any quicker than a rogue meatball rampaging through your spaghetti.
13 August 1986
Hey, Garfield. Come here. I'm sleeping with my socks on tonight. Hee hee Har! Har! Life is a gas when you live with a crazy man like Jon!

17 August 1986
I suppose it's nice that Jon lets the neighborhood kids play in our yard. BONK! Then again, there's something to be said for barbed wire.
18 August 1986
Oh, no! Mice have gotten into the cereal. That settles it! It's time to take action! WE GOTTA GET A CAT!
19 August 1986
GARFIELD! THERE'S A RAT IN THE CELLAR! So? So I want you to catch him. Then what am I supposed to do? Make a citizen's arrest? You're hopeless. You know that don't you?
20 August 1986
What are we going to do about the rat in the cellar? I KNOW! What are you doing? We'll poison him.
21 August 1986
Why do *I* have to catch the rat? They're mean, with large pointy teeth. Hold on, boy. Remember you're a cat. A fierce, carnivorous, predarory animal. THe KING OF THE JUNGLE! Here, kitty, kitty, kitty.
22 August 1986
Did you get the rat, Garfield? You know, Jon, people should talk more. The rat...did you catch the rat? All things can be worked out if you just use reason. What happened? I gave him territory.
23 August 1986
Oh, great. I hate spiders. WHAP! Aack! cough cough wheeze daddy! speak to me! your father is dead, son. I'm a widow now. I guess I should feel like a heel. But, I don't. WHAP! Aack! Aack!
24 August 1986
Go get the paper, Garfield. Work! Work! Work! That's all I do around here. I wonder what would happen if I just kept right on walking? I guess I'm going to find out.
25 August 1986
Odie, it's been 10 minutes since I sent Garfield after the paper. Go find him. Why do I feel like I just sent the lamb after the lion?
26 August 1986
Gee, I sure miss the boys. WHAT'S THAT?! Oh yeah...that's quiet.
27 August 1986
GARFIELD! ODIE?! WHERE ARE YOU? HA-HA, GUYS. THE JOKE'S OVER. NOE COME BACK HERE! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! Call the wagon, Reba! that's not a natural laugh!
