Scary Garfield

You've probably seen those remixes of Garfield without the word balloons. Everyone loves to make fun of how inane Garfield is now, but from October 23 to October 28, 1989, Garfield was AWESOME. I guess it was a Halloween special or something? You can go see them in the official Garfield archives and set the time to October 23, 1989. Or you can see them set to music. The official archive ones have been colorized, but I prefer the original black and white, given the theme. Found via boingboing. And here they are in black and white:






Update: This guy points out that this Garfield strip is likely based on this old Italian cartoon

Update Aug-11: Jim Davis says it wasn't based on any previous cartoon, and he explained his thinking.

Why use a black/white version?

Full color version of strip here:

Well, the black and white was the original, since this was a newspaper comic, and the color was probably added separately, later. The topic of this, a scary Halloween thing, works better in black and white, in my opinion.

i love garfield
