In this madcap sequel to Disney's THE ABSENT-MINDED PROFESSOR, Medfield College's most talented inventor Ned Brainard (Fred MacMurray) develops "Flubbergas" amidst a series of wacky adventures. In addition to broken windows and flying athletes, Brainard must contend with indoor rainstorms! The real challenge comes, however, when Brainard must save Medfield College from the nefarious land developer Alonzo Hawk (Keenan Wynn).
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
Son Of Flubber
Medfield's lovable but hopelessly absent-minded professor -- Ned Brainard (Fred MacMurray) -- bounces back in this classic Disney film with hilarious new mishaps when he experiments with the amazing by-products of his startling anti-gravity substance, "flubber." Windows shatter, football players fly, and thunderstorms materialize indoors as Professor Brainard fights to keep Medfield College from falling into the hands of ruthless land developer Alonzo Hawk (Keenan Wynn).
This Disney sequel invites viewers back into the lab for more of the antics of "The Absent-Minded Professor." Ned Brainard has already invented "flubber," a gravity- defying goo that makes objects float. When the bureaucratic government drags its feet in funding flubber further, Ned returns to his lab and concocts from scratch a gaseous form of his earlier creation that can create dry rain. One thing leads to another, and soon his college's fledgling football team has begged Ned for some flubber to use in its big game, and he agrees. Before long, the running back has a never-before-seen play -- in which he rushes past his rival's defensive linemen... and over their helmets!
