I’ve missed that Table!
Be sure to let it know how much you love it before it leaves once more.
Tiger sleeps on the table?!
The bed…THE BED!
Ah, the ever present waist-high table, how I’ve missed you!
It’s not a table. It’s a floor that Marvin has magically sunk waist deep into.
Yes. Haven’t seen much of Marvin. Less than Tiger, really.
Is now so much like Garfield it hurts.
Yes!! That what made me laugh, especially when I saw Tiger sleeping in a box that looked so similar to Garfield’s bed. I even remember a scenario where Garfield complains about Mondays.
Reminds me of a Garfield poster ^^
Monday: Mondays suck
Tuesday: Start each day with a smile… and get it over with
Wednesday: Show me the COFFEE!
Thursday: Is it Friday yet?
Friday: Don’t know, don’t care
What about Saturdays and Sundays?
I feel those are kind of in the wrong order, though that’s mostly noticeable via the smilies. They go from shocked, grumpy, to unhappy going very happy. (I think Saterday is better than Sunday though, since Saterday still has Sunday behind it, instead of Monday)
Saterday: Life’s a beach
Sunday: I can, but I won’t
Oh Garfield and his hate of Mondays. I got SUCH a huge stack of his comics over the years and I just remembered that some of them I didn’t even get to read yet… Funny that I still clearly remember a bunch of scenarios I read years ago now that I was reminded of them.
Seriously though, there have benn many clues that tiger is actually a hommage to Garfield (or rip-off, however you see it) and as a great Garfield fan (one of the first comics I ever read), I’m shocked that it took this long to notice. A few more examples beside this strip:
His name is that of a huge orange and black cat.
His owner is Jerry Arbelt (familiar much?).
He owns a teddy bear named “Poom”.
He hates cockroaches and I’ll bet you five bucks that he knows many creative ways to squish them.
Dear Gawd this.
Cool strip tho.
Tigerrrr! *Wags finger at Tiger*
*Hears pre-recorded laughter* Weeeeell, that was weird.
Zack and Garfield would get along so well…
“Wake me up when Jerry orders some Pizza”
wake me up/before you sleepy-sleep
*giggles* You’ve gotta love Tiger and Marvin.
Also, Wednesday is my Monday, so…
Really? Because Friday is my teusday
Seven is the new fourteen.
Does that mean that black is the new black? I’m so confused by these things.
No. Slightly reddish tinged black is the new black. Ask Samsung… They call it ToC.
Ya know what’s funnier than 24? 25.
Actually, some Goths have figured out that in Asia — particularly Japan — white is the color of mourning. Guess what the mew black is, now?
Ultraviolet is the new infrared.
*Pictures a Goth dressed in a white robe with their hair and nails dyed/painted white.*
Now there’s a strange image…
Brown is the new black.
That is to say:
“Steampunk is what happens when goths discover brown”.
I can’t be a colour correspondent it appears much to complex so I’ll be a philosophizer.
And all that was once good is now evil?
Wait, so now Pete’s the good guy? T_T
No he’s still sort of a jerk.
Being sort of a jerk does not preclude one from being a “good guy!”
But it does help
Left is a new right!
My previous reply was to Argent Stonecutter’s comment ‘Seven is the new fourteen.’
Juuust an FYI~
Yes, and chartreuse is the new Burgundy!
Walls are the new up
Soviet Russian think that is normal.
That entire comment thread seems to be describing Soviet Russia.
i hate Mondays
wait a min? This is all wrong!!! the cat should be in bed and the dog should be up.
well in the Sandwich’s it would be
It’s like, in a way, their (Peanut and Grape) exact opposites. Only Tiger and Marvin are both male.
I hate mondays AND thursdays!
I also hate Wednsdays and Saturdays. Also Tuesdays. Fridays and Sundays kinda suck too, now that I think about it…
Only two days that don’t suck?. Sucks to be you, I think
And I kinda suck at reading it seems….*facepaw*
Yay! Tiger and Marvin! Its been a while for these two.
Thts why Tiger is my fave!
M&T’s wisdom is umnatched!
all very good points
Silly Marvin, weekdays are for kids!
Alt text please

“Also, why are you sleeping on the table”
Alt text: “Also, why are you sleeping on the table?
That awkward when two of the replies are the same.
They aren’t *quite* the same; each one has a different piece of punctuation missing!
Actually there is indeed no question mark. Sorry Rick, I have failed you T_T
don worry, it’s all gon b k. =D
What ya’ll did is Good for Internet community. Be proud of your self!
What’s this? A Garfield spinoff?? Staring Tiger as Garfield!
You can’t say it doesn’t fit : P
The whole idea has been going on for months. This is the best representation of Garfield/Tiger and Friends I’ve seen! I love it!
oh man do i know the feeling. in fact its like 0100hrs here! why the heck am i up this late!? … oh wait. never mind…
If you can’t beat ‘em, ignore ‘em.
Marvin may have a point there Tiger…or many of them.
Today just feels like a Friday to me. Maybe because I have no assignments until next week, and I just want to skip my classes and relax, but I can’t. Why can’t it be Friday?
Oh dat mid term.
Who ate all the lasagna?!
Garfield called. He wants his joke back. His lawyer says so.
Ahh, missed those guys and their deep understanding of the facts of life!
I didn’t see any dog sleeping on the table in my entire life.
I mean, it’s not possible for a dog to climb up to the table and just sleep here. That’s the cat’s job.
My sisters jug (jackpug) begs to differ.
Ooh the good old days when I used to read Garfield… actually I still read Garfield just not every day… I love reading HousePets X3
It’s so simple and soooo good!
Hah I know Tiger’s feel.
Why not just say “I hate weekdays.” I think most everyone does
On Friday, join us for an all new strip, Tiger Minus Tiger, where we peek at the life of a neurotic, hallucinating orange cat, his traumatized owner who goes along with blaming an imaginary dog named Tiger after Marvin eats all the pizza, and his oblivious bunny sidekick.
At first, I thought Tiger would say something like, “Wait, that was a dream?” and then see a figment of his dream, like one of dragon’s scales with the question, “Or was it?” showing up somewhere on the strip. However, I couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out. (smiles)
PS-Did anyone else notice that Marvin takes the place of Jon in this situation?
Now that you mention it… wow I like how this is going… Garfield feel and Garfield similarity
So is Tiger’s favorite food spaghetti?
No, it’s pizza.
ALL the pizza!
and ALL the cookies!
as sleepy as garfield
yes the best solution…. sleep
But I love Mondays
We like to sleep all day – and party all night =3
It sure is how i’d like to live my life =3
That’s very … catlike … behaviour, “Tiger”.
Agreed… and for some reason it makes me think how much meaning his name is to me… “Tiger”
Oh what it is to be lazy and unsensical,
BTW I’m new to this comic series and I just caught up today
Welcome to the show! =D
That feeling when you take a cat nap for like and hour before a 2pm class and you wake up at 6pm the next day… ughhhhh. lol
Did you know that Tuesday is actually the day where the Monday affect takes place? On Monday you still sort of have the fell of the weekend but Tuesday is when the realization that the week is starting sets in for most people.
Tiger sleeps on the table cuz he’s TOP DOG!
more like TOP TIGER
“What are we doing today?”
“I’ll meet you on the corner of Wait and What. From there it’s all up to fate.”
No it’s actually Friday. …Somewhere.
Heh Is Rick a Garfield fan? Garfield text: “You know it’s a Monday when you wake up and it’s Tuesday.” (Meaning: He slept through a whole day.)
I kinda get the impression that Rick doesn’t like Garfield, and as a result likes to spoof it
But the ultimate Garfield spoof already exists: http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/
It feels like Thursday took forever because I was waiting for this to come.
Holy Carp it’s Tiger! Haven’t seen him since June!
Every Monday is a Tuesday for me, especially Wednesdays. @_@
Same here at lest there’s a thursday then u know the weekend coming up
Man, I know that feeling of going to sleep on Monday and waking up on Tuesday only for it to be Wednesday and me hating Thursdays. *zzz*
We will need a Delorean to get out of this! ^_^
Great Scott, I’ve forgotten the plutonium! We must catch the lightning!
Why do not you go by train?
To hard to find a parking space. XD
what about Fridays?
Every day apart from sundays and saturdays suck, marvin, my friend.
The typeface of that Z looks strangely familiar… well maybe it’s the same as what Rick always uses but it looks a lot like the Z’s used when a certain other comic strip animal sleeps… ;P
I actually remember the exact strip that this seems to be referring to.
Too many days! Make it stoooop
It’d be one thing if Garfield got bored in the absence of Jon during workdays (tho even then, you’d think that later days in the week would be worse for him), but Jon is allegedly a cartoonist working from home — and rarely seen doing anything like that. No, the only reason for Garfield to hate Mondays is to have everyone who ever went to school or work relate.
But you know who’s arguably worse? Sourpuss in “Mutts,” which I usually like. He too voices a hatred of Mondays sometimes, and I believe he’s orange. The difference is that he hates everything, having the character breadth of Grouchy Smurf.
Tiger must be waiting for Friday… gotta get down on Friday.. *shot*
I’m sorry about that, but I couldn’t stand another Friday reference.
It’s just a flesh wound!
I can try again if you want.
Everyone loves Friday!
So Tuesday is the new Monday, and Thursday is the new Tuesdy? That must mean that Monday is the new Wednesday, and Wednesday is the new Thursday. At least Friday stays the same, or does it?
Left is Right and right is wrong…or…east is west and the west always wins!
Tiger hates everyday
So, these Tiger/Marvin strips are homages to Garfield, correct?
It’s funny because their expressions look exactly the same like Garfield and Jon. Especially Marvin’s.
I didn’t realize this was a Garfield reference until someone else pointed it out. FAIL.
Hey I just relized something the Show Buisness arc is over. I was hoping to see more of wat happened.
King bashed Duchess’ face (head) in with a shovel cuz’ she didn’t treat him like a star. (and went into stalker mode) the end.
Also Bino found that one other power-crazed psychopath he was always (i assume) looking for. (unknown if Duchess even can remember the color of his fur.)
welcome back Tiger and Marvin!!! XD
darn. used the wrong emal =/
lol this was cute <3
Hehe, this was such a Garfield comic X3 loved it.
And the color yellow keeps going through his mind.
