Little Orphan Annie
Answer: Leapin’ lizards! “Little Orphan Annie” made its newspaper debut on August 5, 1924, first written and illustrated by Harold Gray. The strip was later renamed “Annie,” telling tales of the spunky orphan adopted by Daddy Warbucks and joined by her dog, Sandy. Her catchphrases are “Gee whiskers” and “Leapin’ lizards!” The strip’s popularity declined over the years; it was running in only 20 newspapers when it was cancelled on June 13, 2010. Little Orphan Annie inspired a radio show in 1930, a Broadway musical and several movies.
