Summary
  • The egg and I: A new bride's husband tells her on their wedding night that he quit his job to buy a rustic farm and raise chickens, and their life becomes hilariously complicated with all of the new barnyard problems
  • Ma and Pa Kettle: In this hilarious adventure, Ma and Pa's house, a building so rickety it's about to be condemned, is replaced by an ultra-modern prefab that Pa wins by dreaming up a slogan for a tobacco company
  • Ma and Pa Kettle go to town: Ma and Pa win a trip to New York, while they have a hilarous time in the big city a mobster, seeking to avoid the police, is minding the kids
  • Ma and Pa Kettle back on the farm: Ma & Pa are gratefully returning home after winning a trip to New York, but it appears uranium has been discovered during the digging of a new well
