Little Lulu

Little Lulu was created by Marjorie Henderson Buell as a single panel cartoon for the Saturday Evening Post in 1935. Little Lulu also appeared in several comic books over the years.

Lulu' s life is filled with crazy adventures because she's a mischievous little girl. Along with the slightly overweight, ringleted Lulu, there are also Annie, her best friend, Tubbie, a on/off friend, and Alvin, the boy next door who is younger than Lulu but drives her insane.

Do You Remember Little Lulu?

Do You Remember Little Lulu?

    Wasn't she originally an American cartoon strip, who was franchised to appear in a British 'paper? As she was mostly pre-War, I obviously don't remember her heyday, although I have come across old Little Lulu annuals in bookshops. One such came in to the bookshop I work at, which raises money for Amnesty International- we were able to sell it on the internet for about £40. It included a funny story where Lulu is telling a friend a moralistic fable about 'The richest little boy in the world' who rode a six-wheeler tricycle and tried to buy the Atlantic Ocean. One day, he passes a poor girl who is looking in enviously at the window of a sweetshop- taking pity on her, he buys the shop, but far from giving her any of it's contents he rolls the window-blind down so she won't be tempted any more!! A sardonic comment upon Thatcherism decades before it became known as a phenomenon!
