PFF - 13-Dot Hong Kong Cartoon


13-Dot was a girls comic by artist Lee Wai-Chun. It was popular among young working=class women in Hong Kong during the late 1960s and early 1970s. "13-Dot" is slang that refers to fun-loving and mischievous girls in Shanghainese. Miss 13-Dot was a fashion-crazy teen-age girl from a rich family who was continually changing her costume. Fans would style their clothes after the ones in the comic.

This card was sent to me by a Postcrossing member from Macau, China. She wrote:
This is a famous cartoon in my parents' age. It republish when I was in junior high & it's one of my favorite too. It's a series of stories about a crazy but clever girl.

The postcard is from Hong Kong Comics: 30 Postcards.
