The author writes:

After seeing the original comic, and Camwoodstock's take on it, I decided to combine as many Garfield spinoffs as I could, and things just exploded from there.

The panels used for the Randomized Garfields are all from rare Quickies that were based on daily strips instead of Sundays.
