The glimpse of Disney Studios goes well beyond the use of a backdrop. The exterior college shots (excluding the opening still frame of a specific building) are of the Disney Studio campus. Walt Disney intended for the studio to have such a look. The early scene where the students eavesdrop on the meeting of school officials takes place on the patio of the studio commissary. See more »

"The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" is a very good film. Released by the Disney company in 1970 or so, it's a movie about a student who has all the knowledge, all the power, all the info - that made him as smart as one of those huuuuuge computers of the time!!!!! Hence, the name of the film is called "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes!"
I've seen this original version not on the Old Disney Channel, but on a local station late one Saturday night in '97. It was good; I also remember the 1995 TV remake that I watched on ABC as were we moving here to Texas!
Man, I wish I had all the knowledge like that boy did!!!!! Oops, this reminds me - I gotta quit writing reviews at the moment and finish writing my midterm paper - now!!!!!
Before I go, let me say, enjoy this film!!!!!
