I don't know why I should be so upset over Garfield and Odie leaving. It's not like they're family or anything. It's 10:00. Do you know where your children are? WAH!
1 September 1986
Gee, I'm lonely. I feel like it's just me against the world. GROWL Okay, okay...US agains the rest of the world.
2 September 1986
I'm so tired I hurt. I could sleep for a week. If I were't staring at this special for ground beef at Ed's Market.
3 September 1986
I'm homesick. I think I'll use my natural, uncanny sense of direction to find my way home. If I can find my way out of this newspaper.
4 September 1986
ODIE! YOU SLY DOG! THERE YOU ARE! Odie must have a very popular ear style.
5 September 1986
The milkman cometh. Now to wait for the doughnut man.
6 September 1986
Hello, doggie, are you lost? Would you like to come home with me? Hmmm And how would you like those silly ears of yours tied in a square knot? I thought so.
7 September 1986
Mommy! Look at the doggie I found. May I heep him? He's not rabid or anything, is he? Oh, no! He's not rabid! He's just stupid.
8 September 1986
Would you like to give Dollie a kiss, doggie? SLURP! How sweet! DOLLY! WHERE DID YOUR FACE GO?!
9 September 1986
Oh, doggie. I love you and I hug you and I squeeze you! I could hold you forever! Good night, doggie! GASP!
10 September 1986
Sniff Oh, poor doggie. I'll bet you miss your home, don't you? I'll bet you'd like to go back to your owner, wouldn't you? OVER MY DEAd BODY!
11 September 1986
Okay, doggie, let's pretend you're at a tea party with all your little friends. Now let's pretend... IT'S OVERRUN BY MERCENARY GUERILLAS!
12 September 1986
Good night, little doggie. You sure do love it here, don't you? Doggie? Mom! Call out the dogs! Another one's gone over the wall!
13 September 1986
If you are here you are lost! Uh-oh! Look, fellas, a cat chew-toy. ARF! ARF! Wait a minute. He braks like a dog. PANT! PANT! PANT! And he pants like a dog. Cool it, guys! Here comes the dogcatcher! BARK! BARK! purrr scratchscratch meyow There's no justice
14 September 1986
It's getting hungry out here. I hate to admit it, but I'd better find work. But, what can I do? BINGO! I Want You Join The Circus Show business, here I come!
15 September 1986
I'm going to join the circus! I think I'll be a trapeze artist of a lion tamer. Or a clown.
16 September 1986
Listen up, cat. I'm Binky The Clown. I'm the head clown around here and don't you forget it! It's a little hard to ignore. And respect...I demand respect. When I honk my nose, people snap to attention. He's full bore looney all right.
17 September 1986
This is a slapstick. It makes a lod noise, but, it doesn't really hurt. Go ahead. Hit me with it as hard as you can. With pleasure! WHAP! It's all in the wrist.
18 September 1986
LADIEES AND GENTLEMEN! MY ASSISTANT!... ROTUNDO THE CLOWN! "Rotundo"? ROTUNDO WILL NOW TAKE A PIE IN THE FACE! SPLUT! FROM MY ASSISTANT; DUMMY THE CLOWN! He looks vaguely familiar.
19 September 1986
This life isn't for me. Are you coming with me, clown? ploop ODIE! Hey! We ran away from home to run away from the circus!
20 September 1986
Table for two? Boy, am I hungry. If we don't find something to eat soon, Odie, we are going to starve. LOOK! AN ANTHILL! In parts of the world where food is scarce, natives squat by the anthills... As the ants come out they pinchtheir tiny heads and put t
21 September 1986
You boys look like you need a good meal. We're starved! Well come in. Eat! Eat! There you go, Odie. PET SHOP There ARE some good-hearted people in this old world.
22 September 1986
Hi, gang. What is this? Some kind of party? No, it's some kind of pet shop. CLANG! You were lured in here with food. Now you're trapped. There's nothing to do here but eat and sleep. Sounds like a little slice of heaven to me. you have avery brave friend
23 September 1986
This pet shop life isn't so bad. It's kind of like camp. Oh, it has drawbacks, believe me. Name one. You bunk with the lizard. I'm getting the drift.
24 September 1986
I tell you, friend, living in a pet shop is dehumanizing. There's no privacy. The overcrowded conditions are deplorable. Amen. Here's the ship ment of mice, Mrs. Ernsberger. Where do you want them? PUT 'EM IN HERE! WE'LL TAKE'M! WE CANMAKE ROOM!
25 September 1986
GARFIELD! ODIE! JON! The cat and dog are $25 for the pair. I'll give you 20. You're going to regret that one, Jon.
26 September 1986
What a surprise to find you guys in a pet shop! I would have never thought to look there. Then what were you?... Forget it I'd rather not know.
27 September 1986
Home's where you can scratch where it itches. HOME! It's great to be home! Home is truly where the heart is! I even love the little imperfections that give it personality... This little squeaky place in the floor. SQUIK SQUIK Thedripping faucets, the peel
28 September 1986
Whew! Boy is my breath bad this morning. It must have been that sandwich I ate before bed last night. Or possibly that block of goat cheese.
29 September 1986
I gotta find something for this bad breath. Aha! Your breath smells funny. Yours would too if you gargled with after-shave.
