    Jon was a farm boy, living the simple life. In the 19th century.

    After I graduated in 1969 the girls were allowed to
    start wearing slacks instead of the manditory skirts
    when I was in school.

    I’m class of 1964. I remember when girls wore coulots (not sure of spelling).

    Imagine a classroom of teenage boys, and the two best looking girls in the latest fashion; see-through blouses.

    Well the problem with the Garfield strips is this: a cartoon can be funny in two ways, in the text and/or in the drawings. And when you go back to the 80s and 90s, you will find a lot of strips that already LOOK funny, and you feel like laughing even without reading the text.
    When was the last time you had that reaction to the new strips? Most of them don’t look funny; and too often the text isn’t funny, either.
    The 80s/90s Garfield is MUCH better than what we have today.

    Victoria Beckham can wear a nightie as a dress so therefore Jon and his classmates were way ahead of their time

    @Imanartisthoney;
    Aye it would seem if your name is in any way associated with fashion you get to wear anything you want and call it anything you want?

    I remember once when I missed my bus and had to ride home on the back of my dad’s motorcycle….in a skirt and about 100 yards of nylon net can-can petticoats.

    Would you stop repeating that?! I’m tired of it! I like Garfield from 1978-1979 and from 1998 to present!

    Petticoats…does he mean crinolines? Girls often wore two or more of them under their full skirts in the 50s. I remember that.

    I taught elementary school from ‘64-69, stayed home with babies for a few years and did some substitute teaching in ’73-75. Things had changed. Girls wore skirts in ’69. In ’73 all the kids wore t shirts and jeans with sort of long, straight hair. You didn’t know who was a girl and who was a boy until they were about 12 or 13 years old. Even the names didn’t help. Everyone was Chris, Jody, Kelly or Tracey! It was unisex time and sure confused the substitute teachers.
