As of June 13, Little Orphan Annie will be no more. Her syndicate, Tribune Media Services, is cancelling the comic strip that’s run continually since 1924. A spokesperson for the syndicate said, “It would serve the character and our business best if we focused on other channels more appropriate to the ‘kids’ nature of the property.” Not to mention that the comic strip only runs in 20 newspapers these days. And that at 86, it’s a little strange that Annie’s still dressing and acting like a pre-teen. No word on whether Sarah Jessica Parker will be cancelled too.
