Ever since I was a little kid I always had a fasciantion with little figurines, PVC characters – or what my grandmother (Bobbie) called Gimgicks

While most of them reside in a box in the garage – this is one of my favorites and it sits on a shelf in my home office

1982 the film version of Annie was released starring Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan

This is a PVC figurine of that character

    I love Carol Burnett but I have never and will never see Annie. Musicals were never my thing until I got the chance of a lifetime to co-write The Color Purple. Then I boned up on as many of them as I could so I appreciate the medium. Which I do now ( though that’s not a blanket statement). I should qualify this in that there were certain ’50s and ’60s musicals I always adored, the music part of them at least, like Oklahoma, Pajama Game and West Side Story. But that curly haired Annie look was always pretty annoying to me so I’ve never been able to bring myself to sit through it.

    With this said, I must say that one of the earliest songs I ever wrote was called “Orphan Allee”. I wrote it in 1974 and sang it as a duet on the demo with Luther Vandross.

    None of this has much to do with the little figurine you submitted. I’m happy that it’s brought you so much joy and continues to do so. I shall admire it from afar!
