Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

The Barefoot Executive
In the great Disney tradition of wild family fun, a young Kurt Russell stars as Steven Post -- an ambitious mailroom clerk at a second-rate TV network. With his eye on the boardroom, and getting nowhere with the studio's top dog, he makes a career-changing discovery. His girlfriend's lovable pet chimp can pick a hit show every time! His secret for success turns into madcap monkey business when he makes vice president and jealous rivals want in on the act. Ride along with narrow escapes and a classic cast featuring Joe Flynn and Harry Morgan in a comedic climb up the corporate ladder that will leave you howling for more!

Plot Synopsis:

A lowly mail boy at a failing network and a chimp befriend one another once the mail clerk realizes the simian has the uncanny ability to pick hit TV shows. Naturally, the mail boy uses the chimp to climb the corporate ladder, doing an even better job than the scurvy top honcho at the network. But when the scam is uncovered, the question remains: What will happen to this odd entrepreneurial couple'
