Parody of folksinger Joan Baez from Al Capp's L'il Abner comic strip, introduced in late 1966. It turned into an incident when Baez called him out on it, and Capp denied it.
Phoanie loves them dirty Reds, the Viet Cong, and badmouthing capitalism while playing for $10,000 a show. She adopts Abner and Daisy Mae's son Honest Abe, and hires Abner and Daisy Mae as servants to take care of him. But when he and his folks proudly sing "My Country Tis of Thee," she un-adopts Abe, and kicks them all out.

- The Beasties (Li'l Abner), a spoof of the Beatles
- Freddie McGurgle, a spoof of Frank Sinatra
