Flubber provides fuel for a very funny piece of hyperbolic humor in the grand American tradition of Paul Bunyan, and Director Robert Stevenson and Scriptwriter Bill Walsh get plenty of bounce out of every ounce.

This is a zanily inventive piece of work, with delightful special effects, which set the style for a long series of live-action Disney films.

MacMurray is ideally cast as the car-hopping prof, and plays the role with warmth and gusto.

Disney produces a goofy lightweight Mack Sennett-like family comedy fantasy film that's joyfully directed by Robert Stevenson.

This Disney family film, inexplicably made in black-and-white, was nominated for three Oscars (cinematography, art direction, and visual effects), but won none, though it was popular at the box-office.

The original's simple humor looks remarkably tired compared with the story's energetic and much more inventive remake.
