Little LuLu. Cartoon Art. Original Drawing SIGNED, on a postcard, postmarked Upper Darby, Oct. 11, 1938

Buell drew a brightly colored sketch of her popular and long lasting character, Little Lulu, to the right of the 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.

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 Lillle LuLu to the movie screen in animated shorts. The LuLu animated movie cartoon ended in the 1960s but continued on television.
