Jim Davis has stated that he created ''Garfield'' [[MoneyDearBoy with the sole intention of making money]]. He decided to create a strip that would be popular with the masses, in order to be commercially successful. The fact that he succeeded says one of two things, depending on how [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism cynical]] one is. On the other hand, at least he was [[AtLeastIAdmitIt willing to admit it]].

* GoodGriefAnotherPeanutsShoutOut: One comic strip has Garfield walk past a mirror and see Snoopy as his reflection. He complains to us, "It's gonna be one of those Mondays".
** A time Garfield gets stuck dangling on a tree branch, he questions if things could get any worse. In the last panel, Garfield is tangled up in a kite in the tree while a off screen character says, "Good Grief!"

* SeriesContinuityError: In older strips, Jon doesn't know that Garfield and Nermal understand English. In more recent strips he does know.

* EasterEgg: The strip [[http://www.gocomics.com/garfield/2017/02/09 seen here]] seems to be nothing more than a lame attempt by Garfield to brag about how lazy he is... unless you actually look up the strip on the day [[http://www.gocomics.com/garfield/1992/11/08 (twenty-four years previous!)]] he's referring to.

* WhenPropsAttack: A late 2011 ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' strip had Garfield eating cookies in the cookie jar, but when Jon catches him, Garfield pretends that the cookie jar is eating him. Of course, Jon isn't fooled one bit by it:
-->'''Garfield''': Help! I'm being eaten by a cookie jar!
-->'''Jon''': Get out of there!
