    Most changes can happen slowly over the years (decades), but I wonder at what point Garfield went from walking on all fours (i.e. like a cat!) to walking on his hind legs (with clown feet). That must have been a deliberate decision on Jim’s part, and probably surprised everyone at the time!

    Let me give you too reasons why Garfield was NOT born on this day. 1. He was born on a Saturday in 1971. and 2. he was already a full grown cat by this strip.

    Looking back after reading lots of these comics, it is now so obvious that this comic sums up both personalities so well. Of course now I’m thinking of this as a Garfield Minus Garfield, and we see a glimpse of a very mentally unstable Jon.

    Garfield the comic first started as the name Jon in 1977 you might say that there is no 1977 in Garfield but go to the Garfield wiki then go to comics and there will be a 1977 in the year date.
