This really requires a video clip!
I played in the pit orchestra for a performance of "L'il Abner" and it was horrible. Terrible, forgettable songs and a really thin plotline. The comic strip was pretty popular during the time and I think Broadway and Al Capp were trying to cash in. I caught part of the movie once and saw Julie Newmar's "stupefying" performance and thought, "OK, that might have saved the show."

I drop everything whenever she's on "Batman".
Well, I happen to like several of the songs. "The Country's In the Very Best of Hands" is pretty funny if it's performed right. The movie sadly slices it down to bare bones.
I still have nightmares about "Jubilation T. Cornpone".
