    I am not old enough to have heard LUM & ABNER when it first aired but have heard it on tape a number of times, enough to appreciate the simplified rural humor & extremely slow pace of Pine Ridge & the daily events of the old county shope, the Jot Em Down store. This is not a rush & tumble slapstick comedy but a gentle narrative of American archetypes & pure dominant small town American thought. Surprisingly sentimental for old time values & virtues (imagine a 1940’s film version of THE ANDY GRIFFTH SHOW) while ignoring the thorny elements small town living (also think Garrison Keller’s love/hate relationship with his Lake Woebegone stories) entail. These were popular enough to have a series of films based on the popular radio show; classic studio B film. Thanks for posting Jon.
