Li’l Abner: “Natcherly, as any fool kin plainly see.”

Billy the Kid*: “Hi-ho, Paint! Let’s git where we ain’t!”

*Billy the Kid was ... the inspiration for a goat character with his name,
who appeared in Fawcett's Funny Animals. . .

Billy’s nemesis was another goat, named “Kid Gloves,” who was a
professional gabler.
