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!
