Four films starring popular funnyman Don Knotts in one set. In "The ghost and Mr. Chicken" Knotts plays a small town typesetter with dreams of becoming a reporter who agrees to spend a night in an allegedly haunted house. In "The reluctant astronaut" Knotts plays a small-town amusement park ride operator with a fear of heights who gets a job with NASA-- as a janitor. He gets to confront his fear of heights when NASA devises a program to send a civilian into space. In "The shakiest gun in the west" Knotts plays a dental school graduate out to bring oral hygiene to the west, who, with the help of a woman gunslinger tracking gunsmugglers who happened to marry him, becomes known as a feared gunslinger himself. In "The love god?" Knotts plays the editor of a bird-watcher's magazine bought out by a group which turns it into a "girlie-magazine" and keeps him on as the editor, with a new life-style to match.
