Jubilation T. Cornpone

Something for the weekend.  Jubilation T. Cornpone (1956) from the musical Li’l Abner, sung by Stubby Kaye.  In his prime, Al Capp was the premier American cartoonist.  Nothing was sacred to him, and his usually hilarious cartoons held up sometimes gentle and sometimes savage mirrors to the foibles of mid-twentieth century America.  It says something good about the country that his daily strips in newspapers enjoyed such broad popularity.
