Who Are...MAIN AND KILBRIDE?
Even though, I recommend you watch the series in order, I list here what I consider the five best films of the series.
Ma and Pa Kettle at Waikiki (1955) This film makes me laugh more than all the rest. It's the last of the Main and Kilbride series. See what happens when Ma and Pa go to Hawaii.
Ma and Pa Kettle at Home (1954) I watch this film every Christmas. There's a wonderful Christmas party at the Kettles in it and Ma teaches her neighbors lessons about the meaning of family.
Ma and Pa Kettle To Town (1950) This one shouldn't be watched without having seen the first film in the series, The Further Adventures of Ma and Pa Kettle first. The story surrounds the kids being baby sat in the house of the future while Ma and Pa take a vacation to New York City.
Ma and Pa Kettle Back on the Farm (1951) Here the Kettles get their first grandchild and find sharing the baby with the other grandparents a nightmare.
Ma and Pa Kettle at the Fair (1952) Ma and Pa try to raise money at the county fair to send their daughter Rosie to college. All kinds of mishaps ensue when Ma enters her crab apple plum jam in a jams and jellies contest and Pa enters the harness race with his old nag.
