Storyline

Li'l Abner, tired of being constantly pursued by Daisy Mae, decides to run away from home but drops by to inform her that he is leaving. But she doesn't care as she informs Li'l Abner that she has a new suitor, Disgustin' Jones, cousin of Available Jones. He takes a train, airplane, ocean liner and gets as far as the Egypitian pyramids before he realizes what she told him and, while Abner doesn't want the delectable Miss Scragg---at least as drawn in the comic strip---he ain't hankerin' fer anybody else to be wooing her, and he returns to Dogpatch to put an end to any hanky-panky that might be going on in them thar hills. But Disgustin', disgusting character that he is, has about a thousand bodyguards hired to keep Abner away. They do but, then Mammy Yokum, takes a hand and quickly makes short work of the bodyguards.

Like watching a train wreck!

Before they started distributing the innovative animated shorts produced by UPA,Columbia Pictures had their own cartoon department. The output of this department is rarely seen today. Watch this cartoon, or any of the studio's other Lil Abner shorts, and you'll know why. THEY ARE FAR AND AWAY THE ABSOLUTE WORST CARTOONS I HAVE EVER SEEN! Sure, there have been a lot of cheaply made cartoons over the years. The problem here isn't that the films were cheap - they seem to be made by people who had NO IDEA WHAT THEY WERE DOING! Cels were shot out of order. Backgrounds panned in the wrong direction. One scene had a big piece of adhesive tape prominently stuck on the background! Had these artists ever SEEN a cartoon before? Did the residents of Dogpatch make these things? I feel kind of bad writing these words. I know that even the most ineptly produced animation is the result of a lot of people working really hard for a lot of hours, but I couldn't believe what I was seeing. You won't either.
