Plot Summary
In this adaptation of the classic comic strip about Dogpatch, Daisy Mae (Leslie Parrish) intends to catch Li'l Abner (Peter Palmer) on Sadie Hawkins Day, so he'll be forced to marry her. But before then, the small town learns it's been declared the most useless place in the country and will be used as an atomic test bomb site, unless they can prove their worth. Abner's mother, Mammy Yokum (Billie Hayes), could have the answer -- but even her Yokumberry tonic might not be enough to save Dogpatch.
