Was on the shelf for a year before Disney decided to release it. The film flopped when it was released. See more »
During the water-ski scene, the Bruno Kirby character is filming Bob Crane's character. When they are watching the film in a later scene, it is simply the scene from the movie, complete with edits and slow motion effects instead of what the character would really have filmed. See more »

Leonard Maltin thought this was a bomb. I on the other hand disagree. Superdad is just an underrated 1973 Disney film which I thoroughly enjoy. I relieved Superdad (the DVD) as a Christmas gift and I thought it was pretty funny considering it was the first time I had ever seen it. Light-hearted Disney romp weird but funny at the same time about the generation gap. Charlie McReady (Bob Crane) is an overprotective dad worrying about his daughter Wendy (Kathleen Cody) about a bunch of beatnik type friends she hangs out with. He thinks they are not wanting to do anything with their life. Wendy is planning on marrying one of her friends Bart (Kurt Russell) But once more Charlie disagrees,and he tries to take part in their activities on the beach like volleyball, football, body surfing and water-skiing. Wendy is going to City College but when Charlie forges scholarships for her to go to Huntington Wendy finds out and she is really upset and so she goes out with a roughneck hippie painter named Klutch. Charlie goes ballistic when he finds out, and so he has a big paint fight with Klutch and takes Wendy away from him. In the end Wendy And Bart get married.
