The Spiders in the comic live to annoy Garfield. These creepy crawlers sometimes walk around the house or dangle from the ceiling—and whom Garfield squishes with rolled-up newspapers. This, of course, leads to several attempts by the spiders to get back at Garfield—unsuccessful in most cases. Garfield does occasionally obtain help from the spiders, such as to get rid of an annoying fly. A spider by the name of Guido has been introduced. The spiders often lose battles to Garfield. However, at times, they only try to be nice to the cat.
