Sweetie Pie-Four Color-1961

Here's a cute story with SWEETIE PIE, a now forgotten newspaper strip character created by one Nadine Seltzer. SWEETIE POE began in the early fifties and, in some ways, seems almost an attempt at combining the feel of both PEANUTS and DENNIS THE MENACE...maybe with a bit of LITTLE LULU thrown in. The character had comic book spin-offs from several companies, this one from the long-running Dell FOUR-COLOR COMICS series. GCD professes not to know the artist so I'm presuming Ms. Seltzer was being imitated. Nicely done, though.
