Garfield Minus Garfield, The Book

TAKE a comic strip like Garfield. Remove the cat. And it’s a story about depresison and maania. And it’s a book:

Garfield Minus Garfield (www.garfieldminusgarfield.net) made its online debut in February 2008 and quickly became an online sensation based on a simple premise: What would Jim Davis’ Garfield comic strip be like without its lasagna-loving fat cat? Without the presence of Garfield and other characters such as Odie the dog and Nermal the kitten, the strips “create a new, even lonelier atmosphere for Jon Arbuckle…Jon’s observations seem to teeter between existential crisis and deep despair.” (New York Times)

Can you remove all the characters from EastEnders and still call it EastEnders, and would it improve?
