Synopsis

As Sadie Hawkins Day approaches, Daisy Mae hopes to win the hand of Li'l Abner by catching him in the traditional race. A senator comes to visit to tell the residents of Dogpatch that their town is to be used as an atomic bomb testing ground, unless they can find something necessary about the town. Could Mammy Yokum's Yokumberry tonic (which Abner has taken every day since he was a baby) be the key?

Trivia & History

The property was originally taken up by Alan Jay Lerner who intended to collaborate with Arthur Schwartz or Burton Lane. Lerner, however, was unable to suitably adapt the material and left the project.
