Indexer Notes

Compilation of daily newspaper comic strips from December 6, 1960 through December 11, 1961. Notable story arcs include: TV trains children in crime more than Fagin did; Boomchik threatens American prestige, until Mammy knocks her out; the Electronic Detective Substitute replaces Fearless Fosdick; the overheated Yokums are exploited by Lower Slobbovia; Tiny needs a wife to adopt Honest Abe; mockaroni makes you lose weight; Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae separate, but Abner remains true; Fearless Fosdick is forced into retirement; teen girls worldwide swoon for pop singer Albert, and Kruschev plots revenge; Mammy plays the trumpappy; Li'l Abner must help catch Tiny on Sadie Hawkins Day. Various names and caricatures spoof Lana Turner, Rock Hudson, Anita Ekberg, Barry Goldwater, Hubert Humphrey, Frank Nitti, and Abigail van Buren.
