Football hasn't been the same since Son of Flubber first soared into movie theaters in 1963. This zany sequel to The Absent-Minded Professor reunited all the major players, including Disney favorites Fred MacMurray, Tommy Kirk and Ed Wynn, for another flubberized fun-fest. You can read all about Walt Disney's Son of Flubber at this just-posted article written by me at D23.com. Be sure and click on each of the fun photos (In Color!) to see a larger view and captions!

Here's an fascinating artifact from the past—a Disney publicity piece centering on Walt Disney's The Absent-Minded Professor (1961). The zany comedy hit made page one of the New York Times on April 6, 1961, as it packed them in at the Radio City Music Hall. You can read all about this true Disney blockbuster in the article I wrote for D23.com here. And check back here tomorrow for some more "flubber-tastic" news.
