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 favorite 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!

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Absent-Minded Professor is a 1961 family comedy about a befuddled yet brilliant professor who comes up with a brilliant invention at the expense of jilting his wife at the altar. Younger kids will enjoy all of the crazy, bouncy action (there's a good dog in it, too), while aspiring athletes will love the Flubber-enhanced basketball game. This is family entertainment at its best: The movie is sweet, clever, and laugh-out-loud funny. There is some comedic pratfall violence: The professor's Flubber-enhanced Model-T causes two head-on collisions between the bad guys and the police, and henchmen are knocked out while trying to catch the professor. The antagonist shoots a gun at the professor while in pursuit.
