The animated shorts that started the Angry Little Girls / Angry Little Asian Girl enterprise...

When it comes to animation, Lee is a minimalist, using simple Magic Marker drawings, but boy does she have plenty to say. Her diminutive grade-school-age heroine unleashes a torrent of foul language whenever she's offended-and this happens a lot-by any behavior that strikes her as racist or discriminatory (or male chauvinist). Her unleashed rage is at once hilarious-so much tough talk from such a little girl-and therapeutic: The treatment she rightly objects to deserves the liberating blowtorch she gives it. Lee leaves you suspecting that Lee's feisty heroine is saying out loud what a lot of Asian americans, young and old, male and female, are often feeling but not saying.

Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, April 30, 1998

Lela Lee's "Angry Little Asian Girl" -a collection of shorts that views like a marker drawn slide-show in which the grade-school heroine tackles racism, gender issues, and stereotype with a blue tongue. Imagine South Park and the musings of Margaret Cho, and you'll get the picture.

Ernest Harding, LA Weekly, April 1998
