"In this life, I was normal-sized, well-animated, and also a dog."
It's like a clip from Jim Davis' The Plague Dogs

Well that was unexpected.
This and the show "Garfield and Friends" were nowhere near as awful as the comic strip (plus it has Lorenzo Music).
I wonder how much of those were the work of Jim Davis and how much was the writing of others who had better ideas about humor than he does.

In this drawing, Garfield is about to kill his owner. The weirdest part is that this is from one of the stories Jim Davis DID write for the book.

I remember reading the trippy book years ago. Sad they didn't depict the one where Garfied gets possessed by a primal spirit and kills a grandma.
Rodents of Unusual Size
Primal Self" (written by Jim Davis; illustrated by Jim Clements, Gary Barker, and Larry Fentz): An orange housecat (by the name of Tigger) meets an ancient, primal, dangerous, possibly evil force, causing him to revert to an entirely feral state. It is unclear whether Tigger is corrupted by the primal force, or if his spirit is cast back into prehistory and stranded there, while the primal essence steals his body in the present day. The story ends with him preparing to attack his unsuspecting owner, an elderly woman; it is strongly suggested that he kills his owner afterwards. Garfield is shown to be terrified of the events in this life; he is depicted cowering under a blanket in his commentary on it, remarking that this life taught him that there are elements in a cat that are not to be toyed with.
NO. NO. NO. THIS IS NOT REAL. IT CAN'T BE.
I know it's hip to hate on Garfield, what with Jim Davis phoning it in and making millions off of merchandising and whatnot, but there is some quality stuff out there. This includes Garfield and Friends, the holiday specials, and about ten years worth of comic strips, at least as far as I'm concerned.
Agreed. And the phoned in stuff got so phoned it that it developed its own kind of dadaist charm.
The whole tv special used to be on here.
I remember watching it and being rather disturbed by a few of the segments. This was one of them.

This frightened me as a child. Seeing it again, I can see why.
