ABOUT THE SHOW:
As Sadie Hawkins Day approaches, Daisy Mae hopes to win the hand of Li’l Abner by catching him in the traditional race in Dogpatch, USA. A senator tells the residents that their town is to be used as an atomic bomb testing ground, unless they can find “something” necessary about the town. Meanwhile, Earthquake McGoon wants to marry Daisy Mae who wants to marry Li’l Abner, who wants to fish. Mammy’s Yokumberry Tonic must be the answer to everyone’s prayers, but General Bullmoose wants the tonic and tries to trap Abner into marrying his attractive, but ditzy secretary, Appassionata. Daisy pledges herself to Earthquake in exchange for rescuing Abner from Bullmoose. In the end, Yokumberry Tonic saves the day.
