Little Lulu (cartoons)

     (since 1943)

     [Based upon Marjorie Henderson Buell's newspaper cartoons which 
      were known as "Marge's Little Lulu", the original theatrical 
      cartoons were animated by Max Fleischer and distributed
      by Paramount Studios beginning in 1943; in 1947 no agreement
      could be reached on the further use of the character, so
      another animation company called Famous Studios created another 
      little girl -- "Little Audrey" -- which Paramount distributed
      beginning in 1947;

      The role of Little Lulu was performed by Cecil Roy and also 
      voiced by the versatile actress Mae Questel who also voiced 
      "Betty Boop" cartoons and Paramount's 1947 replacement -- 
      "Little Audrey" cartoons;

      A new version of the "Little Lulu" song was created in 1954
      with a new arrangement and set of lyrics by the same lyricist
      of the "Mighty Mouse" TV Theme -- Marshall Barer; so this
      suggests a new batch of "Little Lulu" cartoons were packaged
      in 1954 for television use;

      In 1961 Paramount reached a deal with Fleischer's heirs for 
      another series of "Little Lulu" cartoons; both the original 
      animated series and th latter animated series of cartoons
      were aired on various TV shows over the years]
