Ma and Pa Kettle at Waikiki is a 1955 American comedy film directed by Lee Sholem. It is the seventh installment of Universal-International's Ma and Pa Kettle franchise starring Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride.


In July 1952, the Kettles help out cousin Rodney Kettle in Hawaii with his Pineapple industry. Ma and Pa get acquainted with blue-blooded Mrs. Andrews who thinks the Kettles are the "lowliest" people she has met. This is Percy Kilbride's last appearance as Pa Kettle, and his final movie as well.
