Movie Info

Son of Flubber represented the first time that Walt Disney ever attempted a theatrical feature sequel: in this case, the earlier film was the 1961 moneyspinner The Absent-Minded Professor. While Flubber is more formula-bound than Professor, it proved an instant audience-pleaser, and a hit to the tune of nine million dollars. Fred MacMurray returns as professor Ned Brainerd, currently working on his new discovery, "dry rain." The comically destructive side effects of this discovery seemingly doom … More

Audience Reviews for Son of Flubber


The original was better but still a funny early Ealingesq movie.

Super Reviewer


This is the movie where Professor Brainard invents Flubber Gas. Someone gets the bright idea to put the Flubber Gas into a football so some kid can kick a 98-yard field goal. Now THAT is progressive scientific thinking at its best. Was this film directed by the US Government? Not near as good as the original Nutty Professor but it has its moments. One of the first instances where Disney goes back to rape its own brand, a ploy that it does with reckless abandon these days.
