Invisible Ball

First | Previous | 2014-08-19 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Edwin Chee

{Garfield imitates throwing a ball}
Garfield: Fetch the invisible ball, Odie!
{Odie gets excited}
{Odie runs past Garfield}
Garfield: That should keep him busy.
{Odie returns with something caught between his teeth, as if he got the invisible ball, to Garfield's surprise}

The author writes:

This is similar to another strip I did, involving the Mailman's Wallet. Basically the premise of the strips are similar, but it isn't considered recycling because the punchline for both are different. In Garfield Pulls His Weight (an anthology book), the latter strip is printed at the very end of that book, making it something of a Brick Joke (as TV Tropes would call it).

Original strips: 1993-07-31, 1993-11-08.
