Why It Rocks
- Paramount animation in its purest form, next to Popeye the Sailor.
- The cute and playful five-year-old tomboy, Audrey stole the show and was the most adorable character.
- Audrey's character design is very cute.
- Like Bugs Bunny of Warner Bros., Mickey Mouse of Disney and Walter Lantz's Woody Woodpecker of Universal, Little Audrey was Paramount's biggest megastar of slapstick comedy cartoons.
- It blended slapstick, physical comedy, urban fantasy, surreal humor and fun.
- It had some cutesy heartwarming moments, including Audrey adorably feeding the zoo animals with the water fountain in "Law and Audrey".
- "Little Audrey Says" was a very cute, jazzy theme song.
- Like Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, it's slapstick cartoon comedy at its best.
- With the success of the Little Audrey franchise, it quickly gained toys, comic books and television programs. However, the very first television program in the Little Audrey franchise, was actually a spin-off series for Netflix, called Harvey Girls Forever!, which was originally entitled Harvey Street Kids.
- Mae Questel sounds great as Audrey.
- Audrey's trademark laugh was so adorable.
- A few racist stereotypes such as Audrey's maid Petunia as being an African-American stereotype (kinda similar to Mammy Two-Shoes from Tom and Jerry).
- Due to budget cuts, the last two shorts has more limited animation than the others.
- Little Audrey was made after Famous Studios lost it's rights to Little Lulu.
- "Song Of The Birds" is a remake of the Color Classics short of the same name.
- The shorts released between 1947-1950 are currently in the public domain. The rest are still under copyright.
