In this paper we consider the periodic Cauchy problem for the generalized two-component Hunter-Saxton system with analytic initial data and we prove a Cauchy-Kowalevski type theorem for the generalized two-component Hunter-Saxton system, that establishes the existence and uniqueness of real analytic solutions.
