Strip by: Robot Fencer

Jon: Hi, there... I'm Jon Arbuckle. I'm a cartoonist, and this is my cat, Garfield.
Garfield: Hi, there. I'm Garfield. I'm a cat, and this is my cartoonist, Jon.
{Odie suddenly falls on top of Garfield, out of nowhere.}
SFX: WHUMP!
Narration: SIX YEARS LATER...
Garfield: Well, well, well. I see you're eating my food, Odie. Now what are we going to do with you?
Garfield: We are going to kick you into 1978! That's what we're going to do!
SFX: PUNT
Jon: Where's Odie?
Garfield: Somewhere over the Carter administration.

The author writes:

In this universe, Odie just keeps going in circles in time, showing up in 1978, and then getting kicked back in time when he gets to 1984, in a perpetual loop. Like that compass in Lost, only this makes more sense.

Original strips: 1978-06-19, 1984-06-29, 1984-07-02.
