Overview
Hailed as one of Walt Disney's most hilarious comedies, The Absent-Minded Professor contains two essential elements for laughter – Fred MacMurray and Flubber, his gravity-defying formula for flying rubber! You'll visit Medfield College and delight in the fun when professor Brainard (Fred MacMurray) uses Flubber to put more bounce in the basketball team, fly a Model "T" jalopy over Washington, D.C., and save Medfield College from financial ruin.

Join a brilliant cast full of your favourite Disney stars: Ed Wynn as Medfield's bumbling Fire Chief, Keenan Wynn as the evil-minded Alonzo Hawk, and Nancy Olson as the college secretary who the Professor has absent-mindedly left at the altar...three times! It's high-flying fun for the entire family!
