I, for one, had no idea that comic was still in papers.

Just when we're about to enter the economic times that spawned her, we'll lose our one guide who has been there and done that.

I guess we're not allowed to be reminded this isn't the first time wealth was transferred in record numbers from the many to the few. Devastation for many, chocolate-dipped caviar for some.

About damn time. Now please be doing the same to Peanuts and Blonde and about half the other zombies that are filling the comic page with jokes that were old and tired in the 70s.

left-wing politics on the third post of a comic strip thread?

you deserve a cookie. one that was baked by happy proletarians who threw off their chains.

Is she really that great of a guide? I mean, she's an orphan who was taken in by a multi-billionaire defense contractor.

I think it is used for the lining of a bird cage. Not sure though.

The strip/character grew out of a James Whitcomb Riley poem that used to scare the bejeebers out of me.....

The Little Orphan Annie

James Whitcomb Riley

Little Orphan Annie's come to my house to stay.
To wash the cups and saucers up and brush the crumbs away.
To shoo the chickens from the porch and dust the hearth and sweep,
and make the fire and bake the bread to earn her board and keep.
While all us other children, when the supper things is done,
we sit around the kitchen fire and has the mostest fun,
a listening to the witch tales that Annie tells about
and the goblins will get ya if ya don't watch out!



Once there was a little boy who wouldn't say his prayers,
and when he went to bed at night away up stairs,
his mammy heard him holler and his daddy heard him bawl,
and when they turned the covers down,
he wasn't there at all!
They searched him in the attic room
and cubby hole and press
and even up the chimney flu and every wheres, I guess,
but all they ever found of him was just his pants and round-abouts
and the goblins will get ya if ya don't watch out!!

Once there was a little girl who always laughed and grinned
and made fun of everyone, of all her blood and kin,
and once when there was company and old folks was there,
she mocked them and she shocked them and said, she didn't care.
And just as she turned on her heels and to go and run and hide,
there was two great big black things a standing by her side.
They snatched her through the ceiling fore she knew what shes about,
and the goblins will get ya if ya don't watch out!!

When the night is dark and scary,
and the moon is full and creatures are a flying and the wind goes Whoooooooooo,
you better mind your parents and your teachers fond and dear,
and cherish them that loves ya, and dry the orphans tears
and help the poor and needy ones that cluster all about,
or the goblins will get ya if ya don't watch out!!!

On second thought, I'm not even sure she can see.

Born in mid-70s, sad that all today's kids will remember is Pokemon and/or violent ghetto hoodrat culture.

I wonder if the comic has the subtext of Annie as the second coming of Phythia.

Oh noes! Who will help fight the Nazi pirates now?
 
2010-05-13 11:35:04 AM
I hated that stupid comic. On another note, is there anyone willing to photoshop Daddy Warbucks morphing into pedo bear? We all know why he really wanted to help out poor little Annie....

I love cheesy things, including these comics strips.

/Annie not included.
//Sargento is the best!

Nothing of value was lost, but are there any good comics left nowadays that aren't exclusive to the interweb? I enjoy reading Zits, but that's about it. Foxtrot was hilarious before it turned into predictable, recycled plots and the punchlines revolved around extreme levels of math/Warcraft geekiness.

Guess I'll take Dinosaur Comics and xcsd and be on my way.

I don't think Hagar the Horrible should go - have to give some points for honesty in advertising for that one.
 
2010-05-13 11:49:57 AM
Good. Now I can forget to drink my Ovaltine.

/Annie is no longer counting on me...

I really hate Mary Worth. (But I like rape.)

RuckBreaksScissors: I don't think Hagar the Horrible should go - have to give some points for honesty in advertising for that one.

Good point. It's much like Michael Jackson's "Bad" album.

Pickles and Mutts both did the same thing Foxtrot did, too.

Will it be replaced with Little Annie Fanny ??

"Orphan" is so twentieth-century. We prefer "Parentally challenged."

The kid hasn't been the same since they gave her pupils.

Well it's about time. All we need now is to bar her from collecting welfare when she's older, and if possible, a decent pimp and a few loan sharks to place her into a lifetime of slavery, so she doesn't continue to terrorize our gardens and coffee shops. -OR- We simply ship her back to North Korea, maybe under a false name so they don't quite recognize her until it's too late. Any thoughts?
 
2010-05-13 12:03:31 PM
"Cathy" is still OK, right?

Now, that doesn't mean that Annie won't come back ... whether it's (in) comic books, graphic novels, in print, electronic.

Graphic novels? Dirty Annie?
