#CotD: One of only five animated Lil’ Abner cartoons, “Sadie Hawkins Day” was based on Cartoonist Al Capps’ comic strip.
Sadie Hawkins Day (1944) — Lil’ Abner Cartoon Series
The cartoon opens on a recreation of a full page color Li’l Abner strip, and mixes through to a static panel, complete with speech balloon. Then the balloon disappears and the characters start to move and speak.
It’s Sadie Hawkins Day in Dogpatch, and Mammy has Abner in training. But Daisy Mae is in training too, and Mammy has to use all her strength and skills to help Abner race to safety and avoid matrimony for another year.
