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

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.

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