Strip by: PriffyViole

{Garfield is blue and wearing clown makeup}
Garflirious: So what if I'm lost! Big deal! I can handle it!
Garflirious: Cats are ADVENTUROUS! Cats are INDEPENDENT! Cats are strong...
Garflirious: I WANT MY TEDDY BEAR!

The author writes:

I noticed that this strip used the words "teddy bear" and went from there.

Only problem is that's really the only similarity between Garfield and Delirious. Whereas Garfield is lazy, selfish and egotistical, Delirious is energetic (note the numerous exclamation points I added), benevolent, and somewhat camera-shy. There's also the fact that Delirious is blue and Garfield is orange.

In all honestly, Vanoss is a far better fit for the cat, while Mr. Arbuckle better fits Del's often nonsensical antics. Which makes me wonder who Odie would be.

Original strip: 1981-02-02.
