    Garfield ate Lyman?

    Okay, that’s one beaut I haven’t heard about the reason for his disappearance.

    I had a feeling it would be the lions who were in trouble!
    I read an autobiography of a Vietnam vet… recounting how during the war in Korea(he fought in both) he had been attached to a Turkish unit.
    During the Chinese offensive, they were surrounded.
    He rapidly came to the conclusion that Turks are never surrounded, it’s the people on the other side who are in trouble!

    The only Lymon I know of had something to do with Sprite, or maybe 7UP. Can’t remember, it’s been too long.

    Only Rip would make a game of playing with man eating tigers and come out ahead.

    That’s a limon. “Sprite tastes like a limon” to show that they were different from all the lemon-lime sodas and tasted like lime-lemon instead. In the Garfield comic strip, Lyman was Jon’s roommate (back around ‘78 or ’79) and Odie’s owner. Well, Odie stayed on the strip but after a while Lyman was never heard from again.

    Great reference, Dan, only hardcore Garfield fans would know who Lyman was, He’s like the youngest Winslow kid from “Family Matters”, he just disappeared.

    There goes Dan digging deep into in Cartoon archives. It would have been even better if Lyman’s head was somewhere in the pit.

    great reference to Lyman! That explains everything ex- cept… what happened to Irma?

    OK, so sometimes one must suspend their disbelief and just enjoy the ride.

    Why is Queen Cobra being bossed around by her underling?

    Is that what happened to Lyman? What made me think that he and Irma might have secretly eloped?

    Unless it is Lymon Bros that closed down. Or is that Leaman Bros?

    You had it right the first time. And the character’s name was Lyman, with an A.
