1980 - Li'l Abner

About the Show

The hillbilly town of Dogpatch USA has been declared the "most unnecessary town" in the U.S. and is set to be turned into a nuclear testing site. At the same time, the baby tonic (Yokumberry Tonic) that Li'l Abner has been fed all his life is discovered to be a potion that makes men strong and handsome, but also utterly uninterested in romance. That fact does not deter Daisy Mae, who is determined to win the handsome, but uninterested, Li'l Abner at the Sadie Hawkins Day race.
