Pappy Yokum character jug produced by Pearce Pottery of the United States in 1952. Li'l Abner is a satirical American comic strip that appeared across multiple newspapers worldwide. It featured a fictional clan of hillbillies in the impoverished mountain village of Dogpatch, USA. Written and drawn by Al Capp, the strip ran for 43 years from 1934 through 1977. Born Lucifer Ornamental Yokum, pint-sized Pappy had the misfortune of being the patriarch in a family that didn't have one. Pappy was so lazy and ineffectual, he didn't even bathe himself as Mammy was regularly seen scrubbing Pappy in an outdoor oak tub, "Once a month, rain or shine". Pappy is dull-witted and gullible, but not completely without guile.
