The author writes:

In Garfield and Friends, there was an episode ("Fair Exchange") in Season 1 where Jon and Garfield had a dream sequence in which Garfield and Jon switched bodies (literally). One of the parts is Jon (with Garfield's body) dancing to wake Garfield (with Jon's body) up, which was based on the comic above. This edit reflects the changes in full circle. If you're wondering why Jon has that blue bowtie, it's because that episode gave Jon with Garfield body that extra detail. Why is that? No idea.

It should be noted that Garfield and Friends would sometimes use gags from the comic in some form, such as Garfield gluing Odie on the table upside-down (in the same episode, no less).
