Little Lulu
is a comic strip created in 1935 by Marjorie Henderson Buell. The character, Lulu Moppet, debuted in The Saturday Evening Post on 23 February 1935 in a single panel, appearing as a flower girl at a wedding and mischievously strewing the aisle with banana peels. Little Lulu

replaced Carl Anderson's Henry, which had been picked up for distribution by King Features Syndicate. The Little Lulu
Little Lulu
panel continued to run weekly in The Saturday Evening Post
The Saturday Evening Post
until 30 December 1944. Little Lulu
Little Lulu
was created as a result of Anderson's success. Schlesinger Library curator Kathryn Allamong Jacob wrote:

Lulu was born in 1935, when The Saturday Evening Post
The Saturday Evening Post
asked Buell to create a successor to the magazine’s Henry, Carl Anderson’s stout, mute little boy, who was moving on to national syndication. The result was Little Lulu, the resourceful, equally silent (at first) little girl whose loopy curls were reminiscent of the artist’s own as a girl. Buell explained to a reporter, "I wanted a girl because a girl could get away with more fresh stunts that in a small boy would seem boorish".[1]

Marjorie Henderson Buell
Marjorie Henderson Buell
(1904–1993), whose work appeared under the name "Marge", had created two comic strips in the 1920s: The Boy Friend and Dashing Dot, both with female leads. She first had Little Lulu published in a single-panel cartoon in The Saturday Evening Post on February 23, 1935, in which Lulu appears as a flower girl at a wedding and strews the aisle with banana peels. The Little Lulu
Little Lulu
strip replaced the strip Henry in the magazine; the Post requested a similar strip from Buell, and Buell created a little girl character in place of Henry's little boy as she believed "a girl could get away with more fresh stunts that in a boy would seem boorish". The single-panel strip continued in the Post until the December 30, 1944 issue, and continued from then as a regular comic strip.[2] Buell has said the tough little girl with corkscrew curls in her hair resembles herself when she was young.[3] Buell herself ceased drawing the strip in 1947, and in 1950 Little Lulu
Little Lulu
became a daily syndicated by Chicago Tribune–New York News Syndicate and ran until 1969.[4]

The characters in Little Lulu
Little Lulu
in the 1980s comics. First row: Wilbur, Annie, Gloria, Alvin, Tubby, Little Lulu, Jeannie, Joannie and Marge; second row: Eddie, Iggie, Willie, George and Martha.

Comic-book stories of the character scripted by John Stanley appeared in ten issues of Dell's Four Color
Four Color
before a Marge's Little Lulu
Little Lulu
series appeared in 1948 with scripts and layouts by Stanley and finished art by Irving Tripp and others.[5] Stanley greatly expanded the cast of characters and changed the name of Lulu's portly pal from "Joe" to "Tubby", a character that was popular enough himself to warrant a Marge's Tubby series that ran from 1952 to 1961.[2] Little Lulu
Little Lulu
was widely merchandised,[6] and was the first mascot for Kleenex tissues;[2] from 1952 to 1965 the character appeared in an elaborate animated billboard in Times Square
Times Square
in New York City.[7] The comics were translated into French, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic, Portuguese, and other languages.[6] After Buell's retirement in 1972[4] she signed the rights to Western Publishing[8] and Marge's was dropped from the title,[4] and the series continued until 1984.[2] In 1995 stories from the comic book were adapted for The Little Lulu Show, an HBO

animated series with the voices of Tracey Ullman

John Stanley's Little Lulu
Little Lulu
No. 72 (June 1954).

A daily comic strip, entitled Little Lulu, was syndicated from 5 June 1950 through May 1969. Artists included Woody Kimbrell (1950–1964), Roger Armstrong (1964–1966), and Ed Nofziger (1966–1969). Little Lulu
Little Lulu
appeared in ten issues of Dell Comics' Four Color
Four Color
comic book series (#74, 97, 110, 115, 120, 131, 139, 146, 158, 165), before graduating to her own title: Marge's Little Lulu
Little Lulu
in 1948. With the Dell Comics/Western Publishing
Publishing
split that created Gold Key Comics, Little Lulu
Little Lulu
went to Gold Key with issue No. 165. Tubby got his own comic series from 1952 to 1961, first appearing in Four Color
Four Color
No. 381, 430, 444, and #461; then his own title Marge's Tubby from No. 5 thru 49. In this series, Tubby had his own adventures without Lulu, especially with the Little Men from Mars. Upon retirement, Marge sold Little Lulu
Little Lulu
to Western Publishing. The comic was re–named Little Lulu with No. 207 (September 1972). Publication of the comics ceased in 1984 (with issue No. 268, the last few under the Whitman Comics name), when Western discontinued publishing comics. Artist Hy Eisman retained stories intended for #269–270 (scripted by Paul Kuhn) because the artwork was returned to him after the comic was cancelled. Three of these are to be reprinted in the Lulu fanzine The HoLLywood Eclectern (HE). "The Case of the Disappearing Tutu", slated to be the lead story in Little Lulu
Little Lulu
No. 270, appears in HE No. 47 (2008). There were also two giant-sized annuals (#1–2, 1953–1954), fourteen Dell Giants (with seasonal and other themes), a regular-sized un-numbered special on visiting Japan and three Gold Key specials (two with Lulu on Halloween and summer camp, and one with Tubby and the Little Men from Mars). Lulu also appeared in 20 issues of March of Comics and was reprinted in several Golden Comics Digest. Between 1985 and 1992 Another Rainbow Publishing
Publishing
published a hardbound 18-volume set, the Little Lulu
Little Lulu
Library, collecting the stories in the Four Color

issues, plus the regular series through No. 87. John Stanley[edit] Main article: John Stanley (cartoonist) Writer/artist John Stanley's work on the Little Lulu
Little Lulu
comic book is highly regarded. He did the initial Lulu comics, later working with artists Irving Tripp and Charles Hedinger (Tripp inking Hedinger before eventually assuming both duties),[9] writing and laying out the stories. He continued working on the comic until around 1959. Stanley is responsible for the many additional characters in the stories. After Stanley, other writers produced the Lulu stories for Gold Key Comics, including Arnold Drake. Advertising and merchandising[edit] Little Lulu
Little Lulu
was featured on numerous licensed products, and she was the centerpiece of an extensive advertising campaign for Kleenex tissues during the 1940s–50s, and she was also seen in Pepsi-Cola magazine ads during that period.[10] Kleenex
Kleenex
commercials featuring Little Lulu
Little Lulu
were regularly seen in the 1950s on Perry Como's television show.[11] Buell played an active role in merchandising Little Lulu, often taking a hands-on role in terms and negotiations.[12] Today the trademarks on Little Lulu
Little Lulu
are held by Universal Studios
Universal Studios
(which manages the properties of DreamWorks Classics, as well as its parent company, DreamWorks Animation). Theatrical shorts[edit]

In the 1940s, Lulu appeared in a series of theatrical animated shorts produced by Famous Studios
Famous Studios
for Paramount Pictures
Paramount Pictures
from 1943 to 1948, which replaced the Superman shorts of the 1940s. In all, twenty-six Little Lulu
Little Lulu
cartoons were released in a period of less than five years. A similar character, Little Audrey, was then created after Paramount failed to renew the Lulu license (and therefore avoided the payment of royalty fees).[13] The voice of Little Lulu
Little Lulu
was performed by Cecil Roy,[14] and Tubby was performed instead by Arnold Stang. The theme song for the shorts was written and composed by Buddy Kaye, Fred Wise, and Sidney Lippman but performed by the singing group Helen Carroll and the Satisfiers. Finally, Winston Sharples

produced two new Little Lulu
