Storyline

Li'l Abner is busy sculpting a giant-granite statue of his two ideal role-models of bachelor-hood, Hairless Joe and Lonesome Polecat, who live in a cave and spend all of their time in brewing up large vats of moonshine Kickapoo Juice, and forever searching for just the right ingredients to give it the perfect kick, and roadkill is not overlooked. The always-delectable (except when drawn by the Columbia animators on this cartoon series) Miss Daisy Mae Scragg is heartbroken as she does not share Abner's admiration of the two bachelors--a strictly platonic relationship---who share a cave pad outside the Dogpatch city limits. Neither does Mammy Yokum and she sets out to help Hairless Joe and Lonesome Polecat in a search for a wife, although Hairless Joe and Lonesome Polecat are not aware they are in the matrimony market nor that a search is in progress.

Kickapoo Juice was the final entry in Columbia's "Li'l Abner" animated series
10 March 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Kickapoo Juice is the fifth and final entry in Columbia's attempt to make Al Capp's "Li'l Abner" comic strip into a cartoon shorts series. This one has Abner making a giant statue of his bachelor idols-Hairless Joe and Lonesome Polecat-to the consternation of Daisy Mae and his mother, Mammy Yokum. Yokum tries to fix her son's obsession with them by taking away their large pot of moonshine with the title name and ends up taking some of them herself. Chaos ensures...There's some outrageous gags here that were pretty amusing but it all fell apart in the end. While this was originally in Technicolor, the print I saw was in black and white. Animation was good for the '40s era but the story wasn't all that. I recommend this mainly for "Li'l Abner" completists and animation fans curious about Columbia's contributions to the genre before they started distributing UPA shorts.
