Dick Tracy Wiki

Annie Warbucks was the adopted daughter of Oliver Warbucks. She was a happy and spirited young woman who enjoyed adventure. She had curly orange hair and light eyes.

Rescued by Dick Tracy[]

Annie had had a number of adventures throughout her young life. One of these involved her being abducted. Oliver Warbucks (a friend of Dick Tracy and Diet Smith) sought Tracy's help in recovering Annie, but Tracy was not available.

Some time later, Annie was transported to a secluded island where the residents were all hypnotized into believing that it was the year 1944. Tracy infiltrated the island, but lost his memory in the process. He became acquainted with Annie and began to suspect that something was amiss.

Tracy, Annie, and the island's residents were rescued by Warbucks, his aides, and the MCU. They were all then re-assimilated into modern-day society. Annie became a friend of Dick Tracy's granddaughter Honeymoon.

Further Adventures[]

Annie and Honeymoon were present in the 52 Gallery (headquarters of the criminal organization known as The Black Hearts) when it was raided by law enforcement. Annie's associate Punjab protected the girls from some dangerous criminals.

Annie was later shown taking a journalism class with Honeymoon. Their teacher was Brenda Starr.


  • Annie was the main character in a long-running newspaper comic strip. She also appeared in films, radio, and a Broadway musical.
  • The comic strip Little Orphan Annie was cancelled in 2010. At the time of its cancellation, the strip was being written by Jay Maeder. The strip ended without concluding the currently-running storyline, which prompted Dick Tracy writer Mike Curtis to take the necessary actions to introduce the characters into Dick Tracy, where the story was resolved. This generated a considerable amount of publicity for the strip, similar to when other crossovers have occurred.
  • Annie apparently had some celebrity, since Nellie Wheaten quoted her at one point.
