About Little Lulu
2005 marks the 70th anniversary of one of the most popular comic characters of all time, Little Lulu. Long before the days of pint-sized, chemically powered, super girl trios, Marjorie Henderson Buell created one very special little girl who earned generations of fans and helped make the world a better place using only her natural smarts, her big heart, and a healthy dose of sass. From her first appearances in The Saturday Evening Post in the mid-1930s through her current long-running daily cartoon show on HBO Family (celebrating its 10 years on air in 2005), Little Lulu has been a beloved cultural icon all over the world.
