Some strips, such as [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1996&addr=960728 this one]], draw women in a NonStandardCharacterDesign.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the early days, Garfield acted more like a regular cat, compared to the more humanlike behavior of later comics. Jon, on the other hand, was more like the average cat owner, displaying none of the weird eccentricities he later came to possess. Also, the relationship between Jon and Garfield was completely opposite to what we see today, with Jon acting as the straight man to Garfield and Jon making the sarcastic quips about Garfields sometimes weird behavior.
