Possum Pearl, who had been introduced the previous year in the Popeye cartoon HILL-BILLING & CROONING returns to hunt down a man, including a robber who falls into her clutches in this mediocre Paramount Noveltoon.
Hillbillies were still popular in the comics, thanks to Al Capp's comic strip, "Li'l Abner'. However the lack of variety in the scripting of the gags combines with the growing problem of shrinking budgets to render this one merely watchable. The animation is still topnotch, but the character design and backgrounding have been simplified. In the hands of a director with a well-written story, this might be an asset; certainly the folks at UPA knew how to bring a different visual view to their well-written stories. Famous, however, depended on its gags and with a shortage of things to look at between, this cartoon is no more than competent.
