Lulu was created by Marjorie Henderson Buell.
Lulu was born in 1935, when The Saturday Evening Post asked Buell to create a successor to the magazine’s Henry, Carl Anderson’s stout, mute little boy, who was moving on to national syndication. The result was Little Lulu, the resourceful, equally silent (at first) little girl whose loopy curls were reminiscent of the artist’s own as a girl. Buell explained to a reporter,
"I wanted a girl because a girl could get away with more fresh stunts that in a small boy would seem boorish."
