Plot

Possum pearl 1

The Possum Pearl character received a slight redesign for her starring vehicle

Possum Pearl, a young, robust hillbilly lady, lives alone in her woodlands cabin where she would entertain herself by singing songs about her wishes to be married to a good man. She later proceeds to go out "hunting" for potential husbands. The mountain mailman eludes her and warns the local men about the marriage-obsessed stalker so Pearl, defeated, returns to her cabin just as a criminal breaks in, escaping from the police. She is perfectly willing to oblige to the crook's demands and play house with him, offering him heart-shaped waffles. He panics and tries to make his escape, but is thwarthed at every turn by a singing would-be bride. Even after fleeing the shed and going through a bear cave, a haystack and a river, he cannot shake his persistent persecutor. The robber is chased all the way to the state police's station, where he locks himself up. Pearl's attention then shifts towards a handsome police officer, whose getaway motorcycle she easily captures.
