    Makes me wonder how does Garfield manages to buckle in his seat belt without struggle.

    @templo SUD And it doesn’t bother you that he flies in a seat like a regular passenger, and not in a pet cage?

    Uh-oh. Too many leftover desserts, a too-tight seat belt, and maybe some bouncy turbulence as they descend. Will Michael get airsick???

    What kind of airline is this? I don’t ever remember extra desserts even in the old days when there was full meal service on planes. Plus, when did they make seat belts in airplanes that couldn’t fit around a 9-year-old kid, even one who ate a big meal? This is Michael Patterson, not Little Lotta or Baby Huey. Even back in 1984, I would have been scratching my head about this one.

    Michael better not look out the window as the plane descends for the landing. Those desserts just may come back to haunt him. Also Calgary is at a much higher altitude than Ontario so Michael may begin to feel lightheaded because of that as well….a double whammy.

    …and… “It’s a comic strip!”

    And we see here the problem with letting someone color the strip after the fact, with no input from the creator. What happened the stewardess’ head in the third panel? The colorist followed the lines too literally.

    We were still calling them stewardesses in 1984….

    Lynn’s Notes:
    My mom called from the airport as soon as Aaron arrived in Vancouver. She said he was very sick. As it turned out, he’d noticed that many passengers did not eat their chocolate desserts and asked the hostess if he could have them all. Thinking he’d never eat ALL the desserts, they happily gave them to him and neglected to check back until he was too full to do up his seatbelt. He arrived in Vancouver engorged and miserable. My folks were too thoughtful to laugh — but we sure did!
