Strip by: Crazy56U

{Encyclopedia Man and Garfield are sitting at the table, Encyclopedia Man being sad}
Encyclopedia Man: {to Garfield} I feel blue, Garfield.
Garfield: You do look depressed.
Encyclopedia Man: {stands up, reinvigorated} I know! I'll treat myself to a new pair of encyclopedias!
Garfield: {having gained Encyclopedia Man's depression} Oh no! He's contagious!

The author writes:

Couple of things to get out of the way:

1) I actually came up with the idea for this strip before MST3Kfield was published, but I wound up finishing it after because of life getting in the way.

2) My original intent was to make my own take on the "Ziggy neuters Garfield" Cartuned-strip from the Manos: The Hands of Fate episode of MST3K. Unfortunately, that wound up being impossible (I don't know which strips Joel "used" to make that strip), so I instead opted to use the strips that came out the day the episode premiered.

3) I know Garfield's whiskers look terrible, but I had to do some editing to the background to make things work, so there you go.

4) The strip is in black and white because I couldn't find a colored version of the Ziggy strip.

5) Again, I apologize for making Garfield's whiskers look terrible.
