"In 1946 Author Betty MacDonald wrote a Best Seller "The Egg and I". In 1947 Universal Pictures made it into one of the most popular movies starring Claudette Colbert & Fred MacMurrary as newly wed city folk gone chicken farmers. And Majorie Main & Percy Kilbride as "Ma & Pa Kettle" the madcap country neighbors with 15 kids. The Egg and I and the Kettles were so popular that Universal Pictures made a sequel starring the Kettles in "The Further Adventures of Ma and Pa Kettle" in 1949. Again so successful the Kettles became a series of hilarious films. Main & Kilbride were the perfect blend for Beverly HillBillies comedy.Summary: All 4 films are Standard Format and Black/White remastered picture & sound (excellent quality). "The Egg & I (1947) Has newly weds Bob & Betty MacDonald (Colbert & MacMurray) giving up the city life for the life of a chicken farmer "EGGS" in the state of Washington. Their 40 acre run down farm becomes a real challenge along with their scatter brain / madcap neighbors the destitute Kettles (w/ 15 kids). A great story, outstanding ensemble cast and hilarious antics fill this movie. "The Further Adventures of Ma and Pa Kettle" (1949) The procrastinating Pa Kettle obsession to enter contests proves to be a winner. The fun begins when the Kettle prize is a brand new house of the future. "Ma and Pa Kettle Go To Town" (1949) Pa wins another contest a trip to New York. Who will baby sit their 15 helluns so they can go? "Ma and Pa Kettle Back on the Farm" (1950) Ma & Pa are to become grand parents and the rich society in-laws are coming to stay with the Kettles to visit their grandson. This is Volume One and it loaded with pure fun and laughter. If you want to see 1940's & 1950's comedy at its best jump on board the Kettle DVD Series!!! Enjoy"

"I will never get tired of Ma and Pa and the kids. These are great family movies you will enjoy watching again and again. I loved watching these as a kid and was THRILLED when they came out on DVD. In the Egg and I we first meet up with Ma and Pa Kettle as they "borry" from the neighbors. In the Further Adventures, what will happen when Pa writes in to get a new tobbaco pouch and end up winning a model home?In Ma and Pa Kettle go to town they venture out to New York after Pa wins another contest and they have a mess of trouble trying to deliver a black bag. Back on the Farm is my favorite, where they think they have uranium growing in their backyard after being forced back to the old house by their son's pushy mother-in-law. You will love the wholesome down home humor of these movies with Pa's ever borrowing and saying "he has to fix that one of these days" and Ma with a heart as big as all outdoors always there to keep him and the "kids" in line."
Great to see "The Egg and I" again

"The real gem of this package is "The Egg and I", and to get it along with the first three "Ma and Pa" movies is even better. The three M&P movies represented here are somewhat of a mixed bag as far as the humor is concerned. However, in all cases, the transfers are nicely done by Universal and the bonus of theatrical trailers makes this a set well worth the investment."
Here's Why it's so Cheap - 1 Disc Not 4 per the Description

"Amazon has this set as having four discs. That is incorrect - there is only one. There are a total of four movies on the disc. On one side are, "The Egg & I" and "Ma & Pa Kettle Go to Town". The other side has "The Further Adventures of Ma & Pa Kettle" and "Ma & Pa Kettle Back on the Farm".Each movie has a Trailer, Scene Choice, Subtitles and Languages. (English, French and Spanish). The trailer quality was ok. As for the movies themselves, I've seen only one so far ("Go to Town") and the picture is not bad at all. Yes, I've seen "crisper" pictures on other DVDs but the pic here was better than I expected for the price. I'm happy with it and would definitely buy it again. I'm so thankful the Ma & Pa Kettle movies are finally out on DVD!BTW, according to amazon, there is a Vol 2 set that will be released on May 4, 2004 for only $13.99. Vol 1 is 108 mins. long and Vol. II will be 326 minutes. I wonder if Vol 2 will have four discs. p.s. I'm writing to amazon to correct the "4 disc" wording on Vol 1 so it might have been corrected by the time you read this."
