Orphan Annie first appeared in the comics in 1924. The redheaded girl, her dog Sandy, and her friends have been on the radio and are still on the comic pages. The first movie based on the strip was produced in 1932. A Broadway musical show that opened in 1977 and a movie based on the show and produced in 1982 made Annie popular again and many toys, dishes, and other memorabilia are being made. The Little Orphan Annie comic strip was cancelled on June 13th, 2010.
