Little Lulu Original Art Signed Marge for Marjorie Buell. Buell, the creator of Little Lulu, drew a brightly colored water color sketch of her popular and long lasting character. The cartoonist's charming sketch shows to the right of her greeting, "Best Wishes from Little LuLu and Marge." The sketch measures about 2 x 2 inches on a 5 1/2 x 3 inch government postcard, postmarked Upper Darby, Oct. 11, 1938, two years after Little Lulu was first published in the "Saturday Evening Post."
Buell, who used the pen name Marge, created the popular comic strip series for "The Saturday Evening Post." Little LuLu made her first appearance in the Post in 1935 and continued to be drawn by Buell until 1947. Based on the success of the comic strip and aimed at a young audience, in 1944 Paramount brought Little LuLu to the movie screen in animated shorts. The LuLu animated movie cartoon ended in the 1960s but continued on television.
