Funnyman Tim Conway (“The Carol Burnett Show“) stumbles and bumbles through one misstep after another on his way to collecting a billion-dollar fortune in this lovable family comedy that co-stars Will Geer (“The Waltons“). Funny, outrageous and packed with adventure, it’s a racing locomotive of laughs! Vernon Praiseworthy (Conway) is a helpless klutz who can’t hold a job. But his luck suddenly changes when he discovers he’s the only living relative of a billionaire (Geer) and will inherit the family fortune if he can prove his worth by crossing the country as a hobo. Sounds easy enough, until Vernon takes the wrong train and lands in the middle of a kooky canine kidnap caper that could derail his dreams and put him and his pooch in the pokey!


Computer nerd by day, professional clown on evenings and weekends (Raynbow), who combines the two by maintaining a bunch of websites dedicated to the history and performances of clowning, such as Free Clown Skits, and comedy such as Best Clean Funny Jokes.
