From 1976-83, Barbara Created, wrote, and drew MS. LIZ, the first cartoon character symbolizing
the liberated woman. She developed a marketing corporation to produce
and license products featuring the character. MS. LIZ
appeared on mugs, t-shirts, sleepwear, underwear, tote bags,
eyeglass cases, and sold over two million greeting cards.
MS. LIZ (click on the picture above) appeared on the TODAY SHOW over twenty times.
The MS. LIZ comic strip was featured in COSMOPOLITAN MAGAZINE over fifteen times (and their Spanish edition), as well as other women's magazines including WORKING WOMAN, SELF, and NEW WOMAN.
MS. LIZ was licensed out as the spokeswoman for DUPONT LYCRA fabric. An animated two minute film was used as a selling tool for in-store promotion as well as ads running in WOMEN'S WEAR DAILY.
