¡Mexicano Garfield!

First | Previous | 2010-11-02 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Colin Foster

TV: Ese es el último de los frijoles.
TV: Vamos a comer al gato.
TV: Obtener el taco de los depósitos.
Garfield: Ellos van a reciber una carta desagradable.

Translation from Spanish:
TV: Well, pardner, that was the last bean.
TV: Yup, looks like we'll have to eat the cat.
TV: I'll get the taco shells.
Garfield: Boy, are they going to get a nasty letter.

The author writes:

The original idea was that, since Mexico has orange in their flag, I'd use the colours of their flag for a remix! Then I actually did research and found that they use red, white, and green, and the orange I was thinking of was apparently from Ireland. Not one to let a stupid idea go to waste, I went and made it this way.

Original strip: 1990-05-25.
