"Halloween 1989" or "Garfield Alone" refers to a series of six highly unusual Garfield comic strips that first appeared in newspapers between Monday October 23 and Saturday October 28, 1989. The six strips are unlike any other Garfield comic strips because they are not supposed to be funny. Instead, they are intended to be frightening. They present a storyline in which Garfield the cat suddenly finds himself in a future in which his owner Jon and Odie the dog no longer exist. Garfield is left completely on his own and without any food in a house which has long since been abandoned.
Jim Davis, the creator of Garfield, has said, "During a writing session for Halloween, I got the idea for this decidedly different series of strips. I wanted to scare people. And what do people fear most. Why, being alone."
