Strip by: NES Boy

Garfield: Cereal is not healthy.
Garfield: Oh, it's nutritious enough...
Garfield, But, ever try to pass a bonus toy?

The author writes:

I was visiting a book store the other day and came across the 30 Years of Laughs & Lasagna book. Having nothing better to look at, I looked into the section at the end of the book where Jim Davis talked about 30 different strips throughout the years. The November 19, 1997 strip was among them, and Davis lamented that the reference to decoder rings dated it. I thought I could fix it with something that had the same concept, but isn't a product of its time. And what could be more timeless than toys?

[[Original strip: 1997-11-19.

Fun fact: The word "bonus" was only ever used twice so far in the history of the comic.]]

Original strips: 1988-12-09, 1997-11-19, 2013-02-03.
