Strip by: Matthew Prower

Music: ♪Breaks my heart, I want to go and cryyyyyyy♪
{A teary-eyed, miserable-looking Garfield leans against what appears to be a fridge. A music player sits offscreen, playing The Beach Boys' "Caroline, No." As the bridge enters its second line, Garfield bursts into tears and hugs what is revealed to be Flash}
Music: ♪It's so sad to watch a sweet thing dieeeee♪
Garfield: WAAHH!
Music: ♪Oh, Caroline, whyyyyyy?♪
Garfield {in anguish}: WHY? WHY'D THEY HAVE TO REPLACE YOU WITH HTML5, MOBILE GAMES, SOCIAL MEDIAS, AND DREK SHOPS?!!! Don't worry, little buddy. I'll never let you go!

The author writes:

Anyone who doesn't have Flashpoint or hasn't converted their flashstuffs into Ruffle is gonna get a huuuuge gut punch by now.

(Also did you know December 31st is also Michigan J. Frog’s birthday? Poor dude managed to promote an entire network and he never got proper acknowledgement after he died.)

Original strip: 1995-10-08.
