Space-age technology is pitted against medieval superstition and treachery in this wild and wacky comedy/fantasy. Astronaut Tom Trimble (Dennis Dugan) and his robot companion are unexpectedly hurled backward in time during a routine space flight ... and end up prisoners at the Court of King Arthur in sixth-century England! Adding to Tom's plight is his discovery of a sinister plot to overthrow the King, with the outcome resting on the flash-and-dazzle of the equipment at hand -- from the 20th century!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Unidentified Flying Oddball is a 1979 Disney live-action time-traveling adventure movie with some moments of peril and mild violence. The movie is based on the Mark Twain novel, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court and was also released as A Spaceman in King Arthur's Court and The Spaceman and King Arthur. Astronaut Tom Trimble (Dennis Dugan) and his android double arrive in King Arthur's (Kenneth More) Camelot and endure sword fights and jousts. During the fight scenes, characters fall from heights and a robot loses its head and arm, but no one is seriously harmed. In one scene, Tom is about to be burned at the stake -- he escapes but the scene still presents a scary image and concept. An adult magazine -- a bikini-clad woman is clearly visible on the cover -- is shown a number of times throughout the movie.
