Strip by: MaisieMacKenzieFan2000

{Garfield stands in the middle of a room, staring at a calendar}
Garfield: I don't feel like getting older
{Garfield takes the calendar and begins writing on it}
Garfield: Maybe if I change the year, I'll get younger on my birthday
{1976 Garfield appears next to the 1976 Jon in the first panel of the early prototype version of the strip}
Jon: Hi there... I'm Jon Arbuckle. I'm a cartoonist and this is my cat Garfield
Garfield: Hi there, I'm Garfield. I'm a cat and this is my cartoonist, Jon.

The author writes:

After I saw the strip of when Garfield went too far to 1978, I thought I would make Garfield write on the calendar and go too far to 1976, showing the early prototype Garfield strip.

Original Jon strip: 1976-01-08.

Original strip: 2014-06-19.
