I got hooked on Dick Tracy as a very small child – about age 7 or 8, so yeah, 1975 or 76 would be right – because of the hilarious Lispy saying, “Yeth, Pucker Puth, I want to talk to you…” It came in a Sunday color supplement in the St. John’s Evening Telegram when I was a kid. So I’m sure she was real character – we weren’t always able to get the paper and I was so bummed when I’d miss the comic.
But I thought Lispy might actually be named Lipsy. I may be remembering wrong. She did lisp.
