    The eight Kettle films starring Percy Kilbride and Marjorie Main have been released on DVD, as part of Universal's Franchise Collection series. Volume 1 contains The Egg and I, The Further Adventures of Ma and Pa Kettle, Ma and Pa Kettle Go to Town and Ma and Pa Kettle Back on the Farm, while Volume 2 contains Ma and Pa Kettle at the Fair, Ma and Pa Kettle on Vacation, Ma and Pa Kettle at Home, Ma and Pa Kettle at Waikiki. Their dozen (or more) children were not always played by the same actors. Here are some of the children's names:

    Richard Long ... Tom Kettle (the oldest)

    Dale Belding ... Danny Kettle

    Margaret Brown ... Ruthie Kettle

    Paul Dunn ... George Kettle

    Billy Clark ... George Kettle

    Diane Florentine ... Sara Kettle

    Jenny Linder ... Sara Kettle

    Teddy Infuhr ... Benjamin Kettle

    Jon Gardner ... Benjamin Kettle

    Donna Leary ... Sally Kettle

    George Arglen ... Willie Kettle

    Jackie Jackson ... Henry Kettle

    Sherry Jackson ... Susie Kettle

    Beverly Mook ... Eve Kettle

    Gary Lee Jackson ... Billy Kettle (the youngest)

    J.P. Sloane ... Billy Kettle

    Note: Margaret Brown (whom I remember best for her reoccuring role of Ruthie, played her in all of the following:

    Ma and Pa Kettle at Waikiki (1955)

    Ma and Pa Kettle on Vacation (1953)

    Ma and Pa Kettle at the Fair (1952)

    Ma and Pa Kettle Go to Town (1950)

    Ma and Pa Kettle (1949) aka The Further Adventures of Ma and Pa Kettle

    Richard Long played the same role in the following:

    Ma and Pa Kettle Back on the Farm (1951)

    Ma and Pa Kettle Go to Town (1950)

    Ma and Pa Kettle (1949)

    The Egg and I (1947)
