Ways Little Orphan Annie Should Have Ended

annieend.jpgThe comic strip Little Orphan Annie ended in June, closing a run that began in 1924 when Harold Gray created the strip for the Chicago Tribune. Read the final strip here, complete with a cliff-hanger ending.

When the end of the comic strip Cathy was announced yesterday, Twitter fans (and detractors) launched a “Ways Cathy Should End” hashtag on Twitter. Inspired by their example, we have created a new hashtag: “Ways Annie Should Have Ended.” Add yours, and we’ll round up our favorites in a future post.

Little Orphan Annie spawned a musical, a film, and some of the cheeriest music you’ll ever hear. At the comic strip site, 378 readers have left tributes to the comic. Comics Alliance published a short essay about the unexpected ending.
