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

History[edit]

The characters. First row: Wilbur, Annie, Gloria, Alvin, Tubby, Little Lulu, Jeannie, Joannie and Marge; second row: Eddie, Iggie, Willie, George and Martha.

The show was produced by CINAR Animation and 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 until 2006 and in Teletoon Retro since then. The main character was voiced first by Tracey Ullman and then by Jane Woods. The series was produced by Micheline Charest and directed by Greg Bailey, Louis Piché and Nick Rijgersberg.

The series centered on the life and adventures of Lulu Moppet and Tubby Tompkins. Between stories – dubbed as LuluToon – they showed stand-up comedy that Lulu hosted and a series of mini musical episodes called Lulu-Bite. Each episode contained three sketches with different stories, interspersed with a "stand up-comedy" presented by Lulu and two small 30-second introductions without speech, based on the final comic stories (with only three scenes).

This show is different from Little Lulu and Her Little Friends, an anime TV series featuring the same characters made in 1976.
