ABC Weekend Special: Little Lulu was a 1978 half-hour live-action special that was based on the Little Lulu comic strip. It was directed by Arthur Lubin and originally aired on November 4th 1978. The episode had a sequel called The Big Hex of Little Lulu which was aired a year later.
The special was a rare occurrence at the time in that it was a live-action adaptation of a comic strip. It starred child actress Lauri Hendler in the titular role and co-starred Beverly Archer, Eddie Singleton, Nancy Kulp, Robbie Rist, Billy Jayne, and Tim Reid among others. The only known aspect of the story is that it took place at a summer camp called Whackadoo.
No known prints of the special have surfaced since its initial airing, and only a few publicity stills have been found.
