Janie appeared in the first 100 issues of Judy, though her full page strip was at some point reduced to a half page. She then took a break, before returning in Judy #160 and another run of undetermined length. She also appeared in the Judy Annuals for 1962, 1970, 1971, 1976 and 1977.
Janie bears a strong resemblance, bar her gender, to Billy Whizz, who debuted a few years later in the Beano.
