Little Lulu Billboard in Times Square (with Tubby!)

I was wondering why Tubby, the second-greatest American comic book character of all time after Little Lulu, didn't have his own Wikipedia page, when I stumbled over the following amazing fact on Lulu's page. I have many examples of Kleenex advertising featuring Lulu, but somehow was unaware of this: "Little Lulu was widely merchandised, and was the first mascot for Kleenex tissues; from 1952 to 1965 the character appeared in an elaborate animated billboard in Times Square in New York City."
