My grandma used to read us stories or poems about a Little Orphant Annie.,,,don't remember much.....maybe I'll remember.....Tomorrow, Tomorrow...../ :rolleyes:
Little Orphan Annie was a comic strip back in the day. The musical (and 1981 movie) is based on the comic strip. Check out the movie Annie with Albert Finney and Carol Burnett...great 1930s movie. I remember back in Kindergarten I had a red dress and orange wig just like Annie's. Little did I know I was already dressing in vintage style clothes, huh?

Little Orphan Annie did not sing "The sun will come out tomorrow." She had no time to sing or hang out with the other orphans. She was too busy ducking bullets, dodging hit-and-run vehicles, and blowing up Nazi submarines!

Though the comic started in the 20's - it had a huge following from children during WWII because it started a club called the "junior commandos" in which children could subscribe, volenteer time to the war effort, such as collecting scrap metal, and would recieve a star or ribbon in the mail.
(I did my junior thesis paper on the effect of WWII on youth)
