An entry in the series of Columbia cartoons based on the newspaper comic strip, "L'il Abner", by Al Capp. Character creator and taking the money is the only thing Capp had in connection with this bottom-of-the-barrel series, and should not be blamed with any writing involved. These are just a series of cartoons based on hillbilly characters and could have just as well been called "Ozark Ike and Friends" as far as resembling the actual strip relative to style and wit. Abner goes to the big city to acquire some cultural polish and returns only with a bathtub which makes him unpopular with everybody but Daisy Mae. Whoever wrote this evidently didn't read the comic strip or they would have known that not a month went by in Dogpatch that Mammy Yokum wasn't scrubbing Pappy or Abner in a wooden tub...and also clipping their toe-nails.

The first - and WORST - of a TERRIBLE series!
5 January 2004 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I had heard the short lived "Li'l Abner" theatrical cartoon series was bad - in fact, I heard the series was shelved for a year before actually being screened - but I was absolutely FLOORED by how unbelievably awful they were upon actually seeing them. Each subsequent entry actually was something of an improvement on what came before, but when you consider the unbelievable bad quality of this first entry, that's not saying much! The story (hah!) is garbled and quickly crumbles away to a series of slapstick events. The design and animation quality resembles that of porn animation in the 1970s.

Actually... I have heard suggestions that the animation quality was a lot better. The facts indicate that while the series was originally in color, Columbia Pictures lost the color negatives and only had B&W negatives. So they shipped them off to Korea for people there to trace the negatives and color them. Considering that the quality of this cartoon (and others in the series) matches those of B&W animated shorts by Warner Brothers that went through the same process, I am willing to give producer Dave Fleischer and his crew the benefit of the doubt for the quality of the animation. Though even towards the end of the series, the stories were still extremely weak.
