The Little Lulu Show is a Canadian-American animated television series based on the Marjorie Henderson Buell comic book character Little Lulu.[1]

History[edit]

The series aired on HBO Family in the United States and CTV in Canada from 1995 to 1999 after Marge's death in 1993. The series continued to air on Family Channel and Teletoon Retro in Canada. The lead character was voiced first by Tracey Ullman and later Jane Woods. The series was animated by CINAR (now WildBrain) in Canada.

The series centers on the life and adventures of Lulu Moppet and Tubby Tompkins.[2] Between stories called LuluToon, they featured stand-up comedy that Lulu hosted and a series of musical shorts called Lulu-Bite is also shown. Each episode contains three sketches with different stories, interspersed with a "stand up-comedy" presented by Lulu and two short 30-second introductions without speech, based on the last comic stories (with only three scenes).

Each storyline featured in the LuluToons are used from comic book releases (including John Stanley ones), with minor alterations.[3]

This series is different from Little Lulu and Her Little Friends, an anime television series featuring the same characters made in 1976 and aired internationally in 1978.
