And then Jon’s clothes catch on fire, causing Jon to run around the house in scorching agony. Not a good way to enjoy your cat’s birthday.
Everybody is a critic. Well, HAPPY 40th GARFIELD!!!!
Happy 40th Birthday, Garfield! You’ve always been funny and great since 1978!
How many — pray tell — IS “many more”?
Oh Garfield you wasted the cake!
Happy Birthday, Garfield, and many happy returns of the day! Now enjoy your cake before Jon gulps it all down ;-)
Serves you right for using the F-word, Jon.
Wow, Garfield’s showing his age. Once upon a time he wouldn’t have wasted a cake that way.
Be happy, Garfield. If you weren’t a comic strip cat, you would now be long dead.
Should’ve have called him by name, Jon.
Jon – you won… you got your cake and ate it too…
Happy Birthday Garfield!!! I hope you get plenty of lasagna and cake today! xxxx
Now, Jon has the cake for himself.
So – that’s about 300 in cat years.
He doesn’t look a day over 175.
Happy Birthday, Garfield! (whispers …but you didn’t close with ‘Feed me’… are you losing your appetite?)
Garfield turning down cake? He IS getting old!
Wow. He’s kept Jim from having to do actual work since 1978.
Happy Birthday Garfield from me on behalf of all your British fans from across the big Pond.
Arise Sir Garfield and Sir Jim Davis!
Happy Birthday Garfield!
Four decades. Hard to believe the cat lasted this long (especially with his dietary habits… or lack thereof).
Either way, we’re glad he’s still around. Happy 40th, Garf.
Here’s our favorite cat,Wearing a birthday hat.Because Jon reminded him of this special day,Garfield knew Jon had to pay.
Just seemed like yesterday I was reading his 22nd anniversary/birthday book.
I will never understand people’s (or, in this case, cats’) obsession with not wanting to admit their age.
r.i.p Jon 1978-2018. Reason:getting owned by a cat.
Happy Birthday you big orange loving cat you.
Happy Fortieth to my 2nd favorite cartoon cat!
If Garfield is 40, how old is Jon?
I understand, Garf. I would be pi$$ed off too if I were the only member of a household who kept aging, while others remain forever young!
And in just another 25 years, Garfield can collect social security payments.
Could’ve been worst, Jon could’ve hired Binky the Clown.
He didn’t eat the cake. That should add a couple of days to his life.
Happy 40TH BIRTHDAY GARFIELD. MAY YOU HAVE MANY MORE.
Happy Birthday Garfield! If I could post a picture I’d show you I still have my 10 year commemorative poster “52 Excuses To Party”! But, I have to ask: did #33 really happen?
Happy 40th. birthday, Garfield! 10 years from now in 2028 I hope you make it to 50 years as long as Jim Davis keeps doing the strip!
Smile, Garfield. You only turned 40. I just turned 50 last week.
Happy, happy birthday, Garfield! I’ve loved you since the day you were “born”! I wish I’d kept all the posters that papered my dorm room walls.
I don’t blame him, Jon is rubbing it in to hard
No way Garfield ruins a perfectly good cake

We Love’s You Birthday Cat!Thank You Very Much To The Legendary German Cartoonist Mr.Jim Davis for Creating Such a Funny Child and Sharing It with Us All and Filling Our Hearts Day After with Sheer Joy!May God Bless You Dearly! :) Thank You!
The first if not one of the first comic strips I read in the funny papers back in the early 90s. And read his books in a NY public library many years ago. Watched the cartoon “Garfield & Friends” as a kid. Then started reading them online in March 2010. And still love the strip to this very day. Happy 40th birthday, buddy! Here’s to 40 more. And thank you, Mr. Jim Davis for creating such an awesome, lovable, cool cat.
Happy Birthday, Gar! We all love you!
And gocomics only goes back 10 years. Too bad.
Happy Birthday Garfield! Enjoy lots of love & lasagna today <3 .(and thanks Mr. Davis for creating the orange tubby tabby!! )
Garfield wasted cake!?
That’s how felt turning 60.
Happy 40th Garfield!
Happy Birthday Cash Cow.
Jon, I’m suprised that Garfield didn’t give you a good shredding!!!
Happy 40th birthday to Garfield. I became a fan when Newsday on Long Island started carrying it in 1981. I still get my Garfield fix to this day.
Happy Birthday Garfield! I’m only becam 30 1 mintha ahol.
Happy birthday, Garfield! I’ve been with you since day 1!
Thanks for 40 years of entertainment Mr Davis! I’ve been a fan since day one.
Not very believable that Garfield would waste a cake.
Happy Birthday to my favourite cat! Best year of your life :-) x
To put Garfield into perspective, in the year his strip debuted…
>Jimmy Carter was President of the United States.>Carter helped Menachem Begin of Israel and Anwar Sedat of Egypt sign a peace treaty at Camp David.>Iran was under the rule of the Shah instead of the Ayatollah.>There was this thing called the Soviet Union, and Leonid I. Brezhnev was its dictator.>The Vietnam War was three years in America’s rearview mirror.>The US still controlled the Panama Canal Zone.>Germany was split into West and East, and Berlin was still divided by the Wall of Shame.>Family Feud was in its second year on the air on ABC Daytime.>Wheel of Fortune was on NBC Daytime with Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford hosting.>The soap opera “Dallas” debuted on CBS in prime time.>Kentucky won its fifth NCAA basketball title, defeating Duke in the finals behind Jack Givens’ 44 points.
I’m going to have lasagna for dinner tonight to celebrate Garfield’s 40th birthday!
Happy 40th Birthday Garfield!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GARFIELD!!!
Happy Birthday Garfield!!
40 years and counting!
Lordy, Lordy, look who’s forty!
Happy birthday to my birthday-buddy! Don’t sweat forty. Sixty is the real beast.
Happy Birthday Garfield! This strip never gets old! And by the way, I just turned 60 and I would’ve loved to do the same thing with the cake if I could’ve gotten away with it!
Happy Belated Birthday, buddy! I’ve been out of town, but hope you had a great day—with lots of lasagna. And cake!
Happy birthday to you. By the way, how old is Jim Davis?
He forgot to blow out the candles.
I can’t believe Garfield’s my dad’s age, that’s crazy.
40 years and Jon still doesn’t know how to frost an entire cake
THE CANDLES LIVE!!
Happy Birthday! I guess Never mind
Welp guess I’m the 100th comment. Nobody cares lol. Anyways happy late bday garf
Well Garfield just wasted cake because of Jon saying to Garfield he’s 40
I guess Garfield lying about his age worked
