Based on the "Little Iodine" two-panel cartoon strip by Jimmy Hatlo, which had evolved from his "They'll Do It Everytime" strip, Little Iodine was the most-scheming kid in comics aside from Hans and Fritz of the "Katzenjammer Kids" and "The Captain and the Kids" strips. She, played by Jo Ann Marlowe, stays true to form most of the way in this picture where she does her best to break up the marriage of her parents (Hobart Cavanaugh and Irene Ryan), ruin a romance between Eve Whitney and Marc Cramer, and cost her father his job. But, unlike her comic-based character, Iodine has a change of heart and sets out to right the wrongs. Written by Les Adams <>

Little Iodine
4 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Popular American cartoon strip made into 'real life' comedy in 1946.

From 1943 to 1966, Little Iodine was written and drawn by Hatlo, who said, "I tried to make her the embodiment of all the brats I knew... I tried to make her naughty as hell—and still likable." Hatlo's definition of 'naughty as hell' often amounted to little more than high spirits or even well-intentioned errors of a trivial kind, such as Iodine attempting to save her grumpy Dad from getting the sack only to inadvertently appear more competent than he (not difficult). Whatever the 'brattish misdeed', the end result was unfailingly the same, a sound spanking on the worn seat of Little Iodine's bloomers! For twenty-three years she must have been the most frequently spanked little girl in the US newspapers.
