You're Gonna Lose That Garfield

Strip by: Manyhills

{Jon emerges from a puddle dressed in swim gear}
Jon: Pardon me. Which is the way to the White Cliffs of Dover?
{Garfield indicates}
Jon: Thanks.
Garfield: This strip is dedicated to Elias Howe, who, in 1846, invented the sewing machine.

The author writes:

This one probably only makes sense if you've seen Help!, the Beatles' second film. Their first, A Hard Day's Night, has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and is considered one of the greatest films ever made. Which, given their assorted other accolades, seems a little greedy, quite frankly.

Original strip: 1982-09-23.
