A compilation of single panels of 32 years worth of the June 19th strip (Garfield's birthday). I chose the ones that closely adhered to the birthday idea, rather than an earlier date. The only exception being the 0th birthday, June 20th, 1978, the day after the first strip. (That's one big kitten.)

Original strips: 1988-06-20, 1989-06-19, 1980-06-19, 1981-06-19, 1982-06-19, 1983-06-19, 1984-06-19, 1985-06-19, 1986-06-19, 1987-06-19, 1988-06-19, 1989-06-19, 1990-06-19, 1991-06-19, 1992-06-19, 1993-06-19, 1994-06-19, 1995-06-19, 1996-06-19, 1997-06-19, 1998-06-19, 1999-06-19, 2000-06-19, 2001-06-19, 2002-06-19, 2003-06-19, 2004-06-19, 2005-06-19, 2006-06-19, 2007-06-19, 2008-06-19, 2009-06-19, 2010-06-19.
