Holly Hobbie

Do you remember this girl?

This is what she looks like now.

Is the world out of fresh ideas? I loved to draw Holly Hobbie when I was a kid because she was easy to create. Now she isn't that cute little pioneer girl but a hip chick in bell bottoms. I imagine the creators of this new Holly are my age and they have a sentimental streak, but was it necessary to change her into a modern girl? Even Strawberry Shortcake has gone a more modern route. Ah well, my childhood has passed and I shouldn't complain. But it does taint ones memories.
