Jon: Got our soda pop. Got our popcorn. We're set.
{Jon and Garfield fall asleep}
Jon: Z

I decided to begin making edits of Garfield strips that had not yet been represented on this site in chronological order the day I made this strip. The earliest strip that had not yet been edited and submitted to SRoMG at the time was syndicated on July 1, 1978, twelve days after the release of the very first one.

I wanted to replace the two lines of "Z"s at the end of the strip with a pair of "Z" balloons for Garfield and Jon to sleep under, but I didn't want to use balloons from an already-used strip, and I wanted them to be from Garfield's early years of syndication.

Luckily, I found some "Z" balloons in the January 7, 1981 strip, which was also unused at the time. I copied and pasted them to the strip, and matched their backgrounds with that of said strip.

I then typed up the transcript and these personal notes, submitted it, and waited for it to enter the queue, all of which happened on the same day I made this strip.

I am extremely proud of the result.

[[Original strips (as previously mentioned): 1978-07-01 (main) and 1981-01-07 ("Z" balloons).]]
