A [[RadioDrama radio show]] titled ''Adventure Time with Little Orphan Annie'' also was spun off from the comic strip. From 1930 to 1943, children were able to join Annie's secret society and [[ProductPlacement encouraged to drink their Ovaltine]] ([[AChristmasStory even in their Secret Society Decoder Pins!]]). Shirley Bell did the voice of the popular orphan for most of the show's run, until Janice Gilbert took over the role in the last year or two of the radio shows run.

In the strip, plucky redheaded orphan Annie is taken in by self-made millionaire "Daddy" Warbucks, the world's richest bald person. Since there's only so many ways of doing "Thieves try to steal the Warbucks millions" and "Kidnappers try to steal Annie so they can get their hands on the Warbucks millions", Annie would often be separated from her protector for months at a time, living on the streets again and bringing sunshine into the lives of struggling small-businessmen, honest laborers, and little old ladies with evil bank-managers.

* ExecutiveMeddling: A recurring plot in the strip is Annie getting away from Warbucks somehow, subsequently finding somebody poor to live with, and eventually getting back to Warbucks. The reason that things usually went this way was that while Gray wanted to let Annie keep being Warbucks' daughter, Gray's boss Captain Patterson thought she'd be more interesting if she stayed poor. They compromised, and Annie lived with poor people half the time and with Warbucks the other half.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The only way you can read most of the Leonard Starr strips. One book of them was published over twenty years ago, but it only contained two arcs (less than a year's worth of strips) from the very beginning. And good luck finding the Sunday pages from the first years; IDW didn't collect them in their books since they usually didn't have any important connection to the story.



* RecycledScript: Many lines in the "Uncle" Dan arc were copied almost word-for-word from other strips in the same arc.

** The comic strip ends with Annie, having survived being fed to sharks by drug dealers, being taken in by a war criminal on the run from The Hague. He tells her that her "new life" with him will consist of hiding from the authorities in a South American slum. Her beloved "Daddy" Warbucks meanwhile, has had a HeroicBSOD upon learning of Annie's apparent demise with it implied that he truly believes that she's dead. However, as of June 16, 2013, it looks like we may finally be getting a FullyAbsorbedFinale in ''Comicstrip/DickTracy.'' [[http://www.gocomics.com/dicktracy/2013/06/16 Oliver Warbucks has told Tracy he may need his help to find Annie.]]

* FullyAbsorbedFinale: Ended with a crossover in ''ComicStrip/DickTracy''.



* NoEnding: The final strip ends on a cliffhanger, with the last panel saying this is where we leave Annie ... 'for now'. Meaning that the story might be continued in another medium. (There are rumors that they're going to continue it [[WebComics on the Internet]].)
