The author writes:

If you look this strip up in the archives, you'll see that the first and fifth frames are missing for unknown reasons. In fact, a full version doesn't exist anywhere else on the Internet. Until now, that is. This is the version taken from Garfield Takes the Cake: His 5th Book.

Also, why is the third frame larger than the others? Several other strips were like this in the books up until book #17.

Original strip: 1981-02-22.
