We also make early reference to “Crab Town”, which is actually what I called my Animal Crossing Island. Anyone else playing New Horizons? Hit me up. This episode, Philip and John are talking about 2016 of Garfield, which was a … different year. Some would say it’s the strangest year, others would just say that it made them feel empty. The hosts have questions this year, like what’s going on with Liz? Which is her true self, “Stepford Liz” or “The Lazy Sadist and the Pain Pig”? And why would you ever put effort into your food, when you can just say “Let’s just do flour”? In today’s Box O Fun, we talk about “Garfield - Caught in the Act”, a Sega game about Garfield, for which Jim Davis might have drawn the sprites. We played the game through sneaky, criminal methods, but we did not play it for very long, because the game is pretty hard. Thankfully, we also watched an AGDQ speedrun of it, so we saw all of the game. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see Jon’s skeleton, which we wanted to see. Our Box O Fun for next week is “Scary Scavenger Hunt”, a flash game on the Garfield website. We say it will be watching a cat, but that will be later revealed to be a lie.

We’re taking the opening of this show in a bold new direction, and fully expect to win an award for it. Tales are told of “Philip Rodger’s Very Very Bad Evening”, and “John McInnes’s Figurative Vietnam Helicopter”, but eventually we have to get to the year of Garfield. 2015 was a year of high highs, incredibly low lows, and a sucky inbetween. As always, it’s chock full of Jimfield, and horrible lazy writing; but there’s also some surprisingly creative stuff here, and the first confirmation in decades that Jon is a cartoonist. It’s mostly bad though, Philip gets angrier about a comic than he ever has before, and John is forced to explain the concept of Black Pilling. In today’s Box O’ Fun, we talk about Cats (2019), and also about Cats (1998). Philip pulled a fast one on John by watching two versions of Cats, and also by becoming a big fan of Cats. Neither of us expected that to happen. We talk about whether Garfield would be a Jellicle Cat, making best use of the media form you’re in, and the weird anti-chinese sentiments of the theatre show. To see Philip's fantastic meme about Mister Mistoffelees, have a look at our twitter. Also on the blog, when I actually get that sorted out. I haven’t as of yet. Our Box O’ Fun for next week is “Garfield - Caught in the Act”, both the 1995 Sega game, and a Speedrun of it from AGDQ.

John is ill, Philip is sad, John is also sad, and on top of that we had to read the Garfield comics from 2014, or else Philip will never get a Scottish Visa. In this episode we’re bringing you complaints about the Graphical Direction of Garfield and its bullshit apolitical stance. Also there’s...Philip’s Big Theory...and a discussion of the true nature of Jon, the man, the monster. In today’s Box O Fun, we talk about Garfield 2 A Tale of 2 Kitties. This may surprise you, but we didn’t like that either. We have...Philip’s Big Theory 2 This One’s About Garfield 2 A Tale of 2 Kitties...and a whole lot of talking about the flaws of this film, and how it could have been better. In particular, John highlights the one scene which could have saved it. Seriously though, don’t watch the film, not even for a joke. Please. Our Box O Fun for next week is Cats (2019).

We battle through panic attacks, and the constant intrusions of police sirens to bring you the hot content you desire. What content, you ask? Well we (John) come up with a name for the very worst type of Garfield comic; we revisit a discussion from last week, just so Philip can say a joke he forgot to say at the time; we celebrate the return of Irma, and the Peter Gabriel Flower Costume; and we express sympathy for Jim Davis’s daughter, Ashley Davis. In the second segment, we talk about some episodes of the TV show “Garfield and Friends”. These being Episodes 2 & 12 from Series 1. We really liked “Box O’ Fun”, so much so that we decided to name the segment after it. However we hated Buddy the Bear. We all hate Buddy the Bear.
