File:Garfield Minus Garfield 6790.png


I'm not crazy, I promise... someone deleted Garfield.
—Jon Arbuckle commenting on the webcomic


Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.
—The original summary for the webcomic

In a World where Garfield never existed, one man imagines that he does.

Garfield Minus Garfield is a strip adapted by Dan Walsh from selected Garfield strips. In this edited version, Jon is the only main character; all other main or non-essential cast (and their associated dialogue) have been removed. However, Jon still behaves as though they, most often Garfield, were there.

Garfield Minus Garfield has been published in a book, which contains the original strips alongside their "Minused" versions, as well as a foreword by Garfield creator Jim Davis (who not only openly approved of the concept, but made several GMG strips for the book).

Other people have made edits to Garfield strips, these edits including, but not limited to: the removal of all thought balloons; and Realfield, which replaces Garfield with a photo-realistic cat drawing.
