Rod Serling: "Indiana, 1989. Spotlight on Garfield, an ordinary housecat with an extraordinary appetite. His idyllic life of food and sloth is about to be turned inside out, for he is about to enter...The Twilight Zone."
Garfield: Brr, there's a chill in here this morning
Garfield: What an eerie sensation...
Garfield: This doesn't feel like my home
Garfield: Jon? Odie?
Garfield: Anybody home?
Garfield: I'm alone
Garfield: Steady, Garfield. There must be a good reason why the house is empty
Garfield: Jon must be at the grocery
Garfield: My home as been abandoned. No one has lived here for years!
Garfield: But, that means... I haven't lived here for years!
Garfield: What's that?!
Garfield: Jon! Odie! You're home!
Jon: Hello, Garfield. Have some food
Narrator: Locked fast within a time when he no longer exists, Garfield
grapples with his greatest fear... Loneliness

Rod Serling: Denial
Garfield: I don't want to be alone!
Jon: Want some breakfast, Garfield?
Garfield: Who needs it? I need you!
Rod Serling: An imagination is a powerful tool. It can tint memories of the past, shade perceptions of the present, or paint a future so vivid that it can entice... or terrify, all depending upon how we conduct ourselves today...

The author writes:

Made in recognition of the recent Twilight Zone revival.
