Abner sees Daisy Mae
Al Capp
Original comic cartoon

Two and Two Make Four
(Caption penciled on artwork by cartoonist)


Published May 29, 1944.

Beautiful Daisy Mae Scragg was hopelessly in love with Abner through the entire life of the comic strip. But it was not until 1952 that Abner finally proposed to Daisy Mae and they remained so happily ever after.

To many comic experts Li'l Abner created and drawn by cartoonist Al Capp is the best comic strip of all time. In 1934 Capp presented his hillbilly idea to United Features Syndicate and "Li'l Abner" was born but was carried by only eight newspapers. However, his luckless Dogpatchers hit a nerve in Depression-era America. Within three years the strip climbed to 253 newspapers and before long daily readers numbered more than 70 million Americans (the U.S. population at the time was only 180 million). At a time when syndicates owned the copyrights, trademarks and merchandise rights to comic strips, Capp wrested control of "Li'l Abner" from United Features, almost unprecedented for the time.

Capp's storyline permanently affected American popular culture. In 1937 he introduced the annual Sadie Hawkins Day race into his strip. It quickly inspired real life girl-asks-boy dances across America and Sadie Hawkins Day became a national tradition. Al Capp retired the strip in 1977 ending a 43 year run and died two years later. His Li'l Abner stands the test of time as a pinnacle of cartoon art and social satire.
