About this title

Synopsis:

Little Orphan Annie is in trouble again in these two sequences taken from the early years of her long-running comic strip. In the first story, our curly-haired heroine overhears news of the impending arrival of Mrs. Warbucks with her young protégé, snobby Selby Adelbert Piffleberry — known to Annie as “S.A.P.” The inimitable Count de Tour soon follows, and things begin to get sticky for “Daddy” Warbucks. It seems the two houseguests are out to destroy the Warbucks financial empire.
In the second story, Annie and her dog Sandy are looking for a new home while “Daddy” Warbucks is away for a year. In Cosmic City, almost everyone is a tight-fisted, orphan-hating meanie, but poor, good-hearted Mr. and Mrs. Futile take Annie and Sandy in. When moneybags Phineas P. Pinchpenny decides to foreclose the mortgage on the Futile home, Annie begins to fight back. Needless to say, in both stories, the good guys are triumphant but — leapin’ lizards! — you know that. These strips first appeared in The Chicago Tribune (and elsewhere) in 1925 and 1932.

About the Author:

An American cartoonist, Harold Gray (1894–1968) is best known for creating the long-running Little Orphan Annie, often considered the first newspaper comic strip to promote a political philosophy.
