***Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again (1979)
Bringing Don Knotts and Tim Conway together was genius; and to use them as often as possible even more so. Granted there are some plot holes in this movie, and nothing as funny as the fire ladder scene in the first, this movie has lots to laugh at. It has women falling in the mud, Knotts/Conway slapstick, and just enough plot to give us a story, albeit a little canned. Clarice the donkey almost teals the show with his loyalty to Tim Conway. He keeps coming back even when he is not wanted.
