Debut- Little Lulu in Eggs Don't Bounce

The first episode of Little Lulu on the silver screen. And, it was an animated short.

Little Lulu was started as a single panel comic strip on the Saturday Evening Post by Margje Henderson Bull in 1935. In 1943, Famous Studios got the license to animate Little Lulu, and when Lulu got animated, Paramount, of course distrubuted the films.

In this UM&M retitling, we see the usual Little Lulu TV print opening titles, then it dissolves to a very odd refilmed main title card.Most end titles don't have a vocal, and the maid's character has a Fleischer-like backdrop. Because of this, even though the studio that was taken over by Paramount was now renamed Famous- it still hasn't fully evolved yet into the typical 1940's Famous Studios cartoon.
Now the Marge nickname is a mystery... It seems like UM&M coined that nickname because they were sloppy plus used different fonts.

As a witness of the orginal titles- It looks like there's a translucent "J"...

And now, the cartoon:

Is that the copy I gave you or another one?

The Beta copy we have I think looks good, but It's pretty colorless (a lot of the prints circulating of the early 40's Famous cartoons, particularly the Popeyes, almost look like they were filmed in Cinecolor).

Interestingly, the font used for the cartoon title is a distinct/non-generic Font, perhaps how the font of the original page looked?

Technically, it was written as "Marge" in the original unless the poorer quality of the video captures makes it appear more like a "j". There's also an accent mark over the "e" that U.M. & M. didn't catch otherwise, but I'm just pointing it out.

I am final, I am sorry, but, in my opinion, this theme is not so actual.

This cartoon is not shown on television anymore due to black stereotypes.

An Invitation to Add Garden Decor to your Life.
A French country garden is an inviting place to enjoy gorgeous flowers and fragrant herbs, but the casual shape and style can make it confusing on where
the entry point to your garden is. Like I stated earlier, the landscaping can be abstract while still maintaining unity through other elements such as rocks, plants,
and decor.

While it may not be necessary to plan out the entire evening it is a good idea
to provide your guests with several activities to do together.
To bring nature on your table you can also use Sweet-gum-tree spurs,just punch
the card with hole and tie in place with ribbon.
Now that you have cured your project for at least 10 to 15 days, you'll want to go ahead and release it from the mold and begin the grinding and polishing process.

Pick a fish like salmon, tuna, or mackerel. If you look good, you feel good, and you'll be more motivated to exercise. The best approach to counteract these food weaknesses is not to eliminate your favorite food from your diet.
