I'd rather had this than the films I watched in Drivers Ed
21 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to agree totally with a previous commenter and if the earlier individual hated it so much, there's a thing called an off button. Personally, I have been looking for this episode for many years and have yet to find it (like I did for Lt Robin Crusoe USN which I finally found). There is nothing in this movie/episode that is objectionable, it's full of the sporadic, spontaneous Disney magic that makes these Wonderful World of Disney episodes so, well, wonderful. The mixture of animated scenes mixed in with live acting is a Disney staple and follows the story line exceptionally. I watched this when it first came out in the early 70's and I haven't forgotten it almost forty years later. Of course, it may have been one of those moments that turned me into such a gear-head, but hey, Hot Rods rule. Unless someone has removed your funny bone, give this one a chance. I've seen it several times through the years and it never loses it's appeal.
