    There you go. Unfortunately, Dick Tracy has fallen under spell, like everyone else in town except Annie and Axel. Belinda is obviously a radio show like Orphan Annie but based on the similar UK comic strip Belinda and complete with the famous decoder badges sent out by sponsors of Radio Orphan Annie. Indeed, Annie had better come up with a strategy, quick.

    A Shout Out to the Annie radio show, as evidenced in “A Christmas Story”.

    Harvey Kurtzman, now there was an artistic genius of satire.
    It’s awesome that they named the award after him.

    I just noticed that Dick Tracy is joined by another adventure strip this year, The Phantom. I wonder if Staton and Curtis have started a trend.

    @Rod Gonzalez

    There’s a great page showing various Annie decoder pins, with some history, here: http://www.radioarchives.com/Little_Orphan_Annie_p/ra005.htm (scroll down for pictures of the pins). If I could afford it, I’d buy the CD set.

    Hoping Dick Tracy blows away the competition for another well-deserved Harvey Award!

    Multitudes of masses sat glued to the radio just like them back then. I can’t imagine it would be an unusual in 1944 to see a scene like that. Annie however, would stand out like a sore thumb, someone might notice her!

    This storyline alone should get them the win. Anyone other than me praying that this gets collected into a graphic novel (maybe with some additional extras)?

    WRONG! LOL! But it does seem to point to yet another time Tracy is gonna need someone to save his rear end!
