Here’s a personal message fromDonald Pitchford, President of the National Lum and Abner Society, Cartoonist and creater of this ground breaking comic strip. I can’t say it any better, so here’s Uncle Donnie in his own words.
The first "Lum and Abner" Comic Strip of the new year presents an important message to adults. I invite you to visit the home page and read, plus listen to this production.
The strip stars two characters from Lum and Abner’s first movie,"Dreaming Out Loud" – Jimmy and Washington – two precocious children. They are portrayed in our audio production by Daron McDaniel and Kyle Cage of Carthage, Texas.
Also in the audio is a performance by legendary Ouachita Mountain fiddler Ruel Bain (recorded in 1985 in the REAL Pine Ridge, Arkansas). Mr. Bain was part of the real Dick Huddleston’s touring show in the 1930s.
I will have some unique and exciting news about the "Lum and Abner" comic strip project soon. I promise it will be something that has never happened in the history of this comic strip!
Here is the link for this week’s strip:
Thank you all so much, and I wish for everyone a blessed new year!
