(NBC) - Garfield the comic strip cat is helping kids stay safe on the internet this Christmas.

The Center for Cyber Safety and Education partnered with cartoonist Jim Davis to write scripts for videos and comic books that uses "safe internet" story lines.

"To put it into a big orange cat makes it easier to understand and, in a way, entertaining as well in order to keep the kids engaged," said Davis.

The Garfield videos are available on the Cyber Safety Center's website.

The next comic book episode will be released in February.
