ABC Wednesday: "L" is For...

Little Lulu!

Little Lulu, created by Marjorie Henderson Buell (or, as she signed herself, "Marge"), originated as a single-panel cartoon in a 1935 issue of the Saturday Evening Post magazine. The comic continued to run in SEP until 1944, and later was developed into a daily newspaper comic strip and then a long-running comic book series.


I've always loved Little Lulu. She was probably my very first literary heroine, and definitely an early role model. She was bright and inquisitive, ingenious and fearless. An early feminist, she was never one to be intimidated by rules or conventions. And her hair was always perfect!


I was hoping to have some photos of my own Little Lulu doll to display for today's post, but I find that she's packed away in storage. So I'm using a shot I borrowed from the Internet. I have this same doll, but mine is a little more "loved."

  1. I liked Little Lulu, more as an adult than a child, when it was too "girly" for me; boys cared about such things.

Welcome to Joysweb! And thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors. From time to time, I might have to moderate comments - I know that's not very hospitable, so I try to do it only on posts that are more than a few days old. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Also, please note that while I appreciate blog awards, I don't play award tag games. I think you all deserve awards!
