There Will Be Procrastination, Regret, Pants

Some genius has reconfigured old Garfield cartoons by removing Garfield. The results can be pretty bleak, or often just bizarre. Embrace the existential angst...

Someone else did a bunch of Garfield cartoons with all Garfield's thoughts/speech removed.

Here are some of them

oli > Jim Davis has actually done a "challenging" week of Garfield dailies. From wikipedia: One storyline, which ran the week before Halloween in 1989 (Oct 23 to Oct 28), is unique among Garfield strips in that it is not meant to be humorous. It depicts Garfield awakening in a future in which the house is abandoned and he no longer exists. In tone and imagery the storyline for this series of strips is very similar to the animation segment for Valse Triste from Allegro non troppo, which depicts a ghostly cat roaming around the ruins of the home it once inhabited.
