    Thank you so much for the history of Little Wingy! I remember reading Dick Tracy comics in the newspaper. When
    my hair or my mom’s hair stuck out with ‘bed head’ or subpar styling issues we called each other Little Wingy. My two daughters were/are called by that name name also when the situation fits. Mom has passed and the other day I told my husband I looked like Little Wingy due to my errant hairdo. A discussion ensued as to the origin of the name! Thanks to you, we have the source!
