    This reminds me of a comic strip from the 1960’s called ‘Ponytail’.

    Emmyloufan: Have you ever met up with the staff of Filmation who did the animated Emmy Lou segments for Archie’s TV Funnies and Fabulous Funnies in the 1970’s – Lou Schiemer, Hal Sutherland, and Norm Prescott?

    I’ve got it figured out now. I commented a few days ago that I thought this used to be a multi-panel strip. I checked with Toonopedia and found out that Emmy Lou evolved into Bobby Sox, which was a multi-panel strip featuring the same characters as Emmy Lou. That’s the one I remember from the 50’s and 60’s.

    Evolved from Bobby Sox. Bobby Sox came first.

    Hi Original_Baskingshark!

    Her name is Taffy. She is Emmy Lou’s best friend. this is a great example why your comments are important. I’ll make sure that GoComics posts all of the Emmy Lou characters and their names. Thanx!

    Hi Davidf42 and Dr Midnight! Yes…Bobby Sox came first(1945-1958) and then when Marty re-syndicated with United Features in 1958 the Emmy Lou name stuck. btw…Charles “Sparky” Schulz helped Marty get into United Features which is Universal Uclick/United Features now.

    Thanx for checking!

    Hi dheine1971! No… we haven’t checked with the staff at Filmation yet, but good point. She ran with the Archie’s back in the 70’s. I do have some Emmy Lou cartoon film that I’ll figure out how to share with you all. Plus, a live action version with a song by Frankie Valli.

    And emmyloufan: Do you have a twitter account?

    @emmyloufan1

    Another thing: Filmation is now part of Dreamworks Classic Media, and I know Lou Schiemer is still alive and retired.

    Hi dheine1971! We’ll have twitter next week and a new website. We’ll provide the info when ready. Thanx for asking. Look forward to interacting with you and everyone.

    Glad to hear Lou Scheimer is alive and well. HE’s an icon!
