Strip by: NES Boy

TV voice 1: Look who's come to visit, boys and girls. It's Jerry the cat. Hi, Jerry.
TV voice 2: Hi, uncle Roy.
TV voice 1: How are you?
TV voice 2: I'm fine. How are you.
Garfield: {actual speech bubble, not just a thought bubble} Uncle Roy is getting pretty bizarre.
TV voice 1: How's your mother?
TV voice 2: She's fine.
Garfield: {actual speech bubble, not just a thought bubble} Who'd be dumb enough to believe there is a talking cat?

Peter Paltridge of Platypus Comix recently highlighted a handful of odd Garfield strips, the original version of this strip among them. I thought I'd try my hand at making a version where Garfield actually talks, thus improving the strip. I had to draw an open mouth onto Garfield in the third panel myself (he already had one in the second panel). Original strip from 1984-06-09
