CAT-MAN COMICS is one of my favorite Golden Age titles because even the back-up stories are fun and generally well-drawn.

The thing about most of the L'IL ABNER clones in 1940s comic books is that they tended to be well-drawn, just like Capp's newspaper strip (no matter who was drawing it any given time! Frazetta? Lubbers?). This one, however, is an exception.

Technically this is early work from Al Williamson with assists from Frank Frazetta but it looks much more to me like Fritz's style with input throughout from Willie.
