The Little Lulu Show is an animated series based on Marjorie Henderson Buell's comic book character Little Lulu.[1] The series first aired in 1995 and ended in 1999.

The series was produced by the CINAR Corporation, in association with Western Publishing Company, Inc./Golden Books Family Entertainment, alongside HBO, Beta Film and the CTV Television Network Ltd. for the first two seasons, with the participation of The Cable Production Fund (Season 2) and the Family Channel (Season 3). For the third season, TMO-Loonland Film co-produced the series with CINAR.


Quick-witted Lulu can outsmart boys, bullies and even grownups! Whether she’s catching frogs for a local restaurant, searching for hidden treasure or tracking down a thief, Little Lulu’s always got an ace up her sleeve. Together with her best friend Tubby, pint-sized Alvin, buck-toothed Annie, smooth Willie and the rest of the neighborhood gang, Lulu always finds herself in the middle of an adventure.

The series focuses on the life and adventures of Lulu Moppet (voiced by Tracey Ullman and later Jane Woods) and Tubby Tompkins.[2] Between stories called LuluToon, they featured stand-up comedy that Lulu hosted and a series of musical shorts called Lulu-Bite is also shown. Each episode contains 3 sketches with the different stories, interspersed with a "stand up-comedy" presented by Lulu and 2 short 30-second introductions without speech, based on the last comic stories (with only 3 scenes).

Each storyline featured in the LuluToons is used from comic book releases (including John Stanley ones), with minor alterations.[3]

The series is different from Little Lulu and Her Little Friends, a Japanese anime featuring the same characters made in 1976 and aired internationally in 1978.


The series was aired on HBO and HBO Family in the United States and CTV in Canada. The series continued to air on Family Channel, Teletoon Retro (English and French), VRAK.TV, and TeleNiños (Spanish dub only). In foreign countries, the series is also aired on the Australian ABC (part of ABC for Kids), Rai 2, E-Junior, Cartoon Network and Rede Globo.
