The appearance of the two people perfectly resembles the father and son, Garfield and Jon. Although it was their first collaboration, they worked very well together. Not only did they have good chemistry, but their preferences were also very similar to Garfield’s – they both hated Mondays and loved Sundays when they could relax.
