|Dot and her DOTS!!|
***Little Lotta was a great character too. She was Little Dot's best friend, probably because she was too busy eating to notice what a nutcase Dot was. Lotta's obsession was with food, and the more she ate, the stronger she became! She wasn't very smart, but she was good natured, and always willing to help out by using her super strength. The best part of the Little Lotta stories was her little boyfriend Gerald's great one word reactions. Gerald was a meek boy with glasses so thick you couldn't see his eyes, who always wore a hat and a big bow tie. Time and time again Lotta would do her super stunts for his benefit. Things such as laying a tree across a road to stop traffic so that Gerald could cross to the other side without getting hit, or lifting up a huge boulder so that Gerald could retrieve the marble he had dropped. Yet every time Lotta performed these deeds of super strength to help him, he would catch me off guard by responding with a weak "gosh" or "gee". Ha ha ha, Gerald! What a riot!!
Who can forget Richie Rich, "The Poor Little Rich Boy"? The guy who was wealthy beyond belief who lived in the most over-the-top mansion imaginable with a seemingly limitless supply of servants at his beck and call at all times? The guy who chose himself a very average girlfriend, Gloria, who hated extravagant gifts and the "showiness" of wealth? The guy whose two best friends, brothers Freckles & Pee Wee Friendly, wore patched up clothing and lived in a shack? I CAN'T!!!
