Strip by: Muchacho1994

{Garfield is alone one day, bored, rocking on his own fat}
Garfield: ♪Hummm♪
Garfield: ♪How many sheep will jump over my bed, bef—♪
{Garfield realizes what he is singing, and quickly becomes angry with himself}
Garfield: Garfield, you're a big cat now. And big cats don't go around singing songs from Sesame Street. It's so childish

The author writes:

...Don't you hate when songs you'd rather not have in your head get stuck in your head?

So when I saw the original strip, Garfield's "♪hummm♪" somehow reminded me of that banjo dude that used to be on Sesame Street all the time, many years ago. I thought I had forgotten about this guy, along with many other things from my childhood, but I guess not. It got to the point where I said, "All right, I have to make this". Instead of just using the Garfield font, however, I went for a more authentic look and painstakingly cut out letters and words from several different strips to make this. It took a couple days to do, but the result is worth it.

...please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers the banjo dude from Sesame Street.
