    236. Al Capp's Li'l Abner Yokum (2002).

    For several decades Li'l Abner was one of the five most popular comic strips on the planet and its creator Al Capp was America's best known and most successful cartoonist. From 1934 to 1977 Li'l Abner appeared in as many as 1,100 different newspapers and (according to a 1977 People magazine) reached up to 90 million people daily!

    Li'l Abner Yokum, an obtuse but honest Dogpatch bumpkin, was the central foil for forty-three years of Capp's often wicked and hilarious satire. A confirmed bachelor, Abner had to be tricked into marrying the highly desirable Daisy Mae Scragg (see button #237) in 1952. Their wedding made the cover of Life magazine. Kitchen Sink Press published twenty-seven 12" x 9" volumes of Li'l Abner Dailies, many of which are still available in this web store. This is one of 7 Li'l Abner buttons created by DKAA, the agency which represents Capp Enterprises, Inc. It is intended for promotional purposes but, while supplies last, you can acquire this advertising item for $2.50.

    1.25 inch diameter

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
