It's time to clean the fridge, Garfield. I'll call a S.W.A.T. team. Grim. I haven't seen these olives in years. And it's only halfway back.
1 January 1987
You're a very brave cat, Garfield, and I know you want me to be proud of you. ZOOM! He can smell a visit to the vet a mile away.
2 January 1987
POOKY! HOW DARE YOU HARM MY TEDDY BEAR! pop BAP BAP BAP BAP BAP
3 January 1987
YAWN ALL RIGHT! SNOW! I love the first snow of the year. WHOAAA! FUMP! BLAT! SPLAT! BOP! Did you enjoy the snow, Garfield? Quite...I'm ready for summer snow.

Attention, lounge lizards! This is your week in the sun. Today we begin celebrating "National Lazy Week"! What's so great about being lazy, you say? What if war were declared and nobody showed?
5 January 1987
Is National Lazy Week for you? Ask yourself this: Would you be willing to lead a parade in celebration of the lazy life? If the answer is yes...you're all wrong for Lazy Week.
6 January 1987
Never confuse being lazy with being apathetic. We lazy people are not apathetic. Apathetic people don't care about anything. Lazy people care, we just don't do anything about it.
7 January 1987
Do people call you "worthless"? Do people call you a "couch potato"? Why should we be held up to public ridicule just because we subscribe to a kinetically passive lifestyle. We should stand up for ourselves! THE NEXT TIME PEOPLE CALL
8 January 1987
Don't forget the National Lazy Week motto, lazy people. "There must be an easier way". Many great ideas have been spawned from that noble sentiment. You can bet it wasn't an exercise freak who invented power steering.
9 January 1987
For those of you who want to stop abusing your bodies through fanatic exercise, but can't muster the willpower... You can now join "Garfield's Exercisers Anonymous". Every time you feel an uncontrollable urge to jog, I send someone overwith a mu

Waterin' down the coffee again, pilgrim? Burp JON! JON! WAKE UP! I'M HAVING NIGHTMARES! Garfield, if you didn't stuff yourself right before going to bed, you wouldn't dream about big, ugly monsters. Did you hear what he called youguys? I think I'll polish
11 January 1987
Isn't this great, Garfield? We have a whole day of fishing ahead of us! Hotcha. HEY! WHERE's THE BAIT? Bait? GARFIELD! I thought it was sushi.
12 January 1987
Actually, Garfield is pretty easy to care for. Cats are so clean, always primping and washing themselves. We're out of foot powder. Almost to a fault.
13 January 1987
Ah, my dear, you're as lovely as ever, but, you look so stiff and formal in that outfit. Why don't you slip into something more comfortable? LIKE ME!
14 January 1987
15 January 1987
Just what is an heirloom? A heirloom is something that's been in your family for generations... That no one's had the guts to pitch out.
16 January 1987
zzzzzzz zzzzzzz zzzzzz Just as I suspected.

* Oh, Nermalll * Kittens love to chase things. CRASH! This can be a very satisfying form of enterteinmant. BONK! Kittens also love to play catch. But, the best way to drive them wild is to hide objects from them. ROWR! cRUNCH! HISS! But, not for very long
18 January 1987
GARFIELD! WAKE UP! I've made a decision that could alter the course of my entire life. I have decided to grow a mustache. I suppose I could blame this on monday.
19 January 1987
Notice anything different about me, Garfield? You're not drinking out of your Binky The Clown mug. I think my mustache is coming in rather nicely. That's not your cocoa? Wanna touch it? It feels really weird. Hey, buddy, I have to eatwith these hands!
20 January 1987
Look Odie! A hideous hairy monster is nesting under Jon's nose! Maybe it'sll spread and cover the rest of his face. Are you making fun of me? IT MOVED!
21 January 1987
Mustaches do strange things to people. They make some guys think they're someone they're not. Frankly, my dear, I don't give a darn. I don't feel safe here anymore.
22 January 1987
ARRRGH! JON! WHAt HAPPENED? I'M FINE! GO AWAY! ARE YOU OKAY? TELL ME! The shaver snagged my mustache, okay?
23 January 1987
I shaved my mustache off, Garfield. Do tell. I decided it made me look like a walrus. I'm proud of you, Jon. It takes a big walrus to admit his mistakes.
24 January 1987
How's my little buddy today? Crowded. TAP TAP TAP Garfield, what are you doing? SNAP! Charades? I love charades! Let's see...first word...you? No, you're! That's it! You're! Leg! No! Stand! You're standing in something! Fourth word!MY! You're standing in
25 January 1987
Amused, Garfield? That's "Mr. Fig Face" to you.

27 January 1987
Here I am falling asleep face down in a bowl of food. This is it. I've reached the pinnacle of laziness and gluttony...how depressing. There's no place to go after you've reached the top.
28 January 1987
I eat too much because I'm depressed, and I'm depressed because I eat too much. It's a vicious circle... That took years to perfect!
29 January 1987
BANG! BANG! Hello? Anybody home? BRINNNNNG! Next time, use the door knocker. Sorry.
30 January 1987
STOP RIGHT THERE! Sometimes that's all a cat understands.
