Western Animation / Little Audrey


Oh, Little Audrey says
"Save for a rainy day."
She saves, but every time it rains
She spends what she puts away.

She knows her proverbs, A to Z,
And knows the good they bring.
But when she has to follow them,
Well, that's another thing.

Oh, Little Audrey says
"While the sun is out, make hay."
Though she's not immense,
There's a lot of sense
In what Little Audrey has to say.
"Little Audrey Says" Theme Song

Little Audrey is a cartoon character from Famous Studios, made during The Golden Age of Animation. Her creation was spurred when the studio grew tired of paying royalties to produce Little Lulu cartoons and decided to create a similar character they could used in the shorts for no cost. She is voiced by Mae Questel, who also voiced Betty Boop and Olive Oyl in the Popeye cartoons. During her Famous Studios years, she starred in a fair amount of cartoons between 1947 to 1958 before she appeared in Harvey Comics afterward.
