* CaliforniaDoubling: In the second film, the city of York in northern England stands in for London. Noticeable in that the "London" seen in the film is a very hilly place, whereas the real London is almost entirely flat.

* EditedForSyndication: The October 20, 2002 strip [[http://www.mezzacotta.net/garfield/?comic=2799 originally]] quoted Creator/RobertFrost's "Nothing Gold Can Stay", but replaced it with original dialogue for the book and online reprints due to Frost's poetry still being under copyright.

* PreviewPiggybacking: Argubly, the only reason anyone saw the first movie when it aired on TheHub was to see the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria Girls]] commercial that premiered on it (the song, [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls the film]] wasn't out until two years later). This got lampshaded in a comic that showed a screenshot from the movie, Pinkie Pie's family looking at it in disbelief, a screenshot from the commercial, and the family with happy expressions.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: Jim Davis developed a book format for the first ''Garfield'' compilation, which featured very wide pages to accommodate the three-panel strip horizontally as it appeared in the paper, as opposed to being vertically stacked like most comic strip trade books of the day. This wide-page format came to be known as the "Garfield format". Many other comic strips soon followed suit with their own books, including ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' and ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot''. {{Iron|y}}ically, since 2001, ''Garfield'' itself no longer uses the Garfield format for its compilations, and the earlier "Garfield format" compilations have been republished in a more standard style.
