Discussion of how Appalachia has been depicted in popular culture, and the place of "Li'l Abner" within that setting.
Compilation of daily newspaper strips from December 12, 1959 though December 5, 1960. Major story arcs include: Liddle Noodnik turns Slobbovia's "Snowman" adorable; Li'l Abner helps Bran Ball bakers get their inheritance; Wolf Gal pursues Li'l Abner by turning animals against humans; Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae must divorce to save humanity; Tiny insists that Abominable Snow-Hams are people; plastic surgery makes romance confusing; Fearless Fosdick foils the revolt of the machines; Mammy and Pappy are trapped in the Punjinyore Vase; the Yankee flu; blindfold Sadie Hawkins Day. The Punjinyore Vase sequence remakes the 1943 story of the Burpinyore Vase. Various names and cameos play with performers Burl Ives and Charlton Heston; presidential candidates Lyndon Johnson, John F. Kennedy, and Henry Cabot Lodge; and comic-strip characters Dick Tracy and Rex Morgan, M.D. The Abominable Snow-Ham story -- in which the creatures are herded into trucks to go to the slaughter-house, and meet only contempt in the court -- is a horrifying depiction of the Holocaust.
