Jon {reading newspaper while Garfield sits nearby}: So "Arthur" has ended after 25 years

Arthur {offscreen}: Chapter one: How I got my very first pair of glasses...
Garfield: At least "Arthur" was allowed a dignified end. RIP "Arthur", 1996-2022

The author writes:

I decided that, with the end of one of the longest-running cartoons of all time (Arthur), I'd make a tribute strip. I saw the final episode and it was great. Surprised it ended after 25 years, but at least it was allowed to go out with dignity, unlike some other long-running properties I can think of...
