October 18th: Little Orphan Annie's Birthday

Updated on October 18, 2012

We have already had Sesame Street’s Grover’s birthday on October 14th and today we celebrate Little Orphan Annie’s birthday. Do you remember watching Annie when you were little? Maybe you watched it with your kids after you were grown. I watched it when I was little as well as watched it with my niece and nephew when they were little as well. This Broadway musical was based on the comic strip which was started in 1922. Little Orphan Annie was so adorable! Little Orphan Annie was an orphan who seemed doomed to spend her life in an orphanage. However, she got lucky when she was chosen to spend a little bit of time with a wealthy man named Oliver Warbucks or Daddy Warbucks.

Annie quickly wins the hearts of the whole household even the so-called cold hearted Mr. Warbucks. He decides to let her stay and help her find her family. He even offers a reward if her parents come forward or are found. However, Miss Hannigan, her evil brother and an evil counterpart named Rooster do their best to mess things up.

Oh, Little Orphan Annie was such a great musical. One I will always remember and would love to watch over and over again. Happy Birthday Annie!
