Leaping Lizards, Annie! Say It Ain't So

For the first time in more than 85 years spanning the Great Depression, World War II and countless intrigues, Little Orphan Annie will not appear today in a daily newspaper.

The "Annie" comic strip, which spawned a Broadway musical and Hollywood movies, was running in a mere 20 newspapers. The final Sunday strip
will end with Daddy Warbucks uncertain over what happened to Annie in her latest run-in with the Butcher of the Balkans.
