Continuity: Positive

First | Previous | 2010-01-06 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Len Pitre

{Jon and Garfield are in the lounge room. A mouse walks by.}
Mouse: Squeak.
{The mouse disappears down a trap door that suddenly opens in the floor.}
Garfield: "Sorry, that was last week's password."

The author writes:

Garfield is, for the most part, continuity-neutral, each strip self-contained and maintaining the status quo. Sometimes it lapses into "positive" continuity (like a themed week of strips, or Liz becoming Jon's girlfriend) and sometimes into "negative" continuity (Garfield destroys something that comes back without explanation next strip, the ever-shifting colour and design of recurring objects). So, what if one strip were taken to both extremes?

Positive Continuity is based upon 1993-08-19 if a strip from the previous year - 1992-10-14 - were taken into account.
