Kanni Theevu (Virgin Island) (1960) is a comic strip that is published in the Dina Thanthi (Daily Telegraph), a Tamil Daily. Known as the longest-running comic strip in the world, this series, which began in 1960, is still being published every day.


Kanni Theevu was started when Dina Thanthi underwent a transformation in 1960. Kanni Theevu started appearing in Dina Thanthi on August 04. 1960. This comic strip was first drawn by Ganesan alias Ganu. The editor of the magazine C.P. Adithanar said that the comic strip should be given the name Kanni Theevu, the name of the island featured in the 1958 film directed and starred by M.G.R.

A.M.Samy, who was the editor of Rani Weekly magazine in the Dina Thanthi group, is the editor of Kanni Theevus story and design. Artist Ganesan (Ganu) drew the pictures for the comic strip at first. For sometime in between, artist Thangam did the same. Then artist Balan continued to draw pictures for Kanni Theevu. Since September 15, 2013, from serial number 18921, Kanni Theevu has been published in full color.
