The Egg and I is a 1947 Misc Short.
- This promotional film was produced by the Lantz studio for Universal's 1947 feature The Egg and I, based on the novel by Betty MacDonald. The film itself stars Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray with Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride as Ma and Pa Kettle. In the end, the Kettles proved so successful with audiences that they went on to star in their own series of Universal comedies. Ironically, they served as the inspiration for the Lantz studio's later Maw and Paw series.
