|“||We'll never get rid of that garbage!||”|
—Frank Heffley, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days (film)
In Dog Days, the creator of the comic strip, Bob Post ended it in August, but his son Tyler Post who is 32 and still lives with him continued it. The comics were based on Tyler Post when he was young. Rowley loves these comics a lot. Rodrick knows Greg's hatred to these comics and buys him books with collections of L'il Cuties like "The Best of Li'l Cutie" and gives it to him every Christmas. One year, Greg gives his book to Rowley for Christmas, and Greg receives a Big Wheel. The comic is basically about a little kid who keeps asking his dad and sometimes his mom stupid questions. It was mentioned in The Ugly Truth. In the online version it is mentioned that the editors try to cancel Li'l Cutie, but a million old ladies threaten to cancel their subscription if they didnt bring it back, so It stayed.
The comic is likely a parody of The Family Circus, a comic strip which also had kids exclaiming stupid statements.
