Sorry, about the whole title limit thing causing bad grammar.
This came about though talking with @FinalArcadia; We came to realize that we could only think of one time in our knowledge of entertainment where a female character took star status from a male character. This example being Betty Boop. As proven simply:
her debut: Talkartoon No 7 - Dizzy Dishes (Bimbo & Betty Boop) - (1930) - YouTube
A short released a mere seven shorts later: Talkartoon No 14 - Mysterious Mose (Bimbo & Betty Boop) - (1930) - YouTube
Her own series begins: Betty Boop Cartoon No 01 Stopping The Show (Betty Boop, Bimbo & Koko) - 1932 - YouTube
Can you think of any other examples of female characters taking star status from male characters? Particularly exciting would be any where it's purely thanks to the fact that the girl was doing a better job entertaining the audience. I won't ask that you provide evidence as I have done.
