Good morning, Garfield. 'morning, Jon. What's this meatball doing in your bed? I put one there every night. That's weird. He must not believe in the spaghetti fairy.

The trouble with you, Garfield, is you think you're human. You're right. I gotta do something about this inferiority complex.
2 September 1988
Look! A mouse! Act like a cat, Garfield! Okay. Z

4 September 1988
whirrrrrrrrr Garfield, where are you? By the electric pencil sharpener being bored. And just what are we doing? We are seeing which common household objects can hold a point.
5 September 1988
We're bored. You said it. Hey, I have an idea! Well, we're not bored anymore. You're right. We're bored AND stupid looking.
6 September 1988
Depressed, Garfield? Yo. Well, look on the bright side. Compared to absolute, hopeless despair, depressed is cheerful! I feel better already.
7 September 1988
Garfield, you have to be the world's laziest cat! ALL RIGHT! This boy's priorities are badly misplaced.
8 September 1988
Howdy, stranger. Garfield, I hate to tell you this... But, sleeping next to a picture of the Grand Canyon is not camping out. You're standing in my camp fire!
9 September 1988
Ha-ha! The last doughnut and it's all mine! Why are you smiling, Garfield? I already licked the sugar off. Hey! This tastes like baby powder.

11 September 1988
That's strange. I forgot why I came in here. Oh well. It will occure to me later. Hopefully before he gets to the grocery store.
12 September 1988
Here's the news! ...uh! Gee, this is small print. Unfortunately, I can't see a thing without my glasses. SO here's a song! * Feeeliiiiings * You should see the weather tap-dance.
13 September 1988
In case you're interested, watches don't float.
14 September 1988
Hey, Garfield! Let's go to the beach! Not today. Where's your spirit of adventure? The spirit is willing but the flesh is fat.
15 September 1988
There must be some way to escape this fat. Nah, it would just find my forwarding address.
16 September 1988
Ready to order, hon? What?s your special today, Irma? "Chicken Surprise". Great. We'll take two. SURPRISE! SURPRISE! You distract her. I'll call the hospital. Got it.
17 September 1988
18 September 1988
Here's a famous phrase for you, Garfield. "Curiosity killed the cat". My uncle Bernie coined that one. Right afte rhe coined the phrase, "never listen for a train by putting your ear on a train track".
19 September 1988
Winter of '83, summer of '79, spring of '86. I love these trips down memory lane... Checking the expiration dates in Jon't refrigerator.
20 September 1988
Dressing properly is a art, Garfield. Rule number one, a tie is the extension of one's personality. Rule number two, never tuck your shirt into your underwear.
21 September 1988
Have you noticed how Odie is always smiling, Garfield? His parents were hyenas. Why don't you ever smile? I have my reasons. If he thought he were pleasing me, he'd stop trying.
22 September 1988
Maybe Garfield won't eat THIS fern. Do you know what this is? I sure do. It's the triumph of hope over experience.
23 September 1988
Stay tuned. coming up next is some mindless drivel guaranteed to insult your intellect. Jon! Your show's on!
24 September 1988
Definitely no more pizzas with anchovies and chocolate syrup before bedtime. CRASH! CRASH! I meant to do that.
25 September 1988
He actually moved. One side was getting flat.
26 September 1988
Jon! You're home! Good to see you! Where's the candy bar I had in my pocket?
27 September 1988
GARFIELD! CUT THAT OUT! Cut what out? Bird Feeder
28 September 1988
You might be interested to know while YOU were asleep, I caought a mouse. Good boy.
