Background notes: Long before dumb blond jokes came in fashion, Lullubelle did the dumb blond jokes, only without ever being vulgar or containing explicit sexual references but instead keeping it light hearted, charming and down to Earth.

The information on the series is rather sparse. The series started out under the name Esmeralda in the Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende in 1955. At the time the series was social satire, and possibly not a comic. The data on this is unclear. In 1959, the series became Lullubelle, though in Berlingske Tidende it continued under the name Esmeralda. The series lasted until the late 1980s.
