Happy Birthday, Annie! And Many Happy Tomorrows!
Little Orphan Annie (last name still unknown) turned 90 years old this week. She first appeared on August 5, 1924 in a single newspaper -- the bulldog edition of the New York Daily News. The rest, as they say, is history. Here's Annie and her "real" papa—Harold Gray—and her adoptive one—Oliver Warbucks, in their first meeting. Happy birthday to the mop-haired redhead!
