Bernie and Annie cartoons are based on the lives of real people, however, Annie has an uncommon way of making you wonder. If you don’t know what Bernie does for a living, don’t worry, she’s going to tell you. I’m 75, and to date, Annie has been the only female to inform me, and everyone else in the que at the grocery store, that she had just started her period. I honestly believe she thought we’d care. There are other members of the cast, but try as hard as they do, compared to Annie, they’re too much like the rest of us to be that interesting.
