Professor Ned Brainard's discovery of flubber hasn't quite brought him - or his college - the riches he thought. The Pentagon has declared his discovery to be top secret and the IRS has slapped him with a huge tax bill, even if he has yet to receive a cent. He thinks he may have found the solution in the form of flubbergas, which can change the weather. It also helps Medfield College's football team to win a game. At home, his wife Betsy is jealous of the attention lavished on him by an old high school girlfriend.Written by

Professor Ned Brainard:
If need be, I'll bet you'd put your own mother in jail.
Funny you should mention that about Mom. A little matter of some unreported income from jams and jellies. We nailed her dead to rights!

For me to say that this "Gosh! Golly! Gee!' Disney picture (from 1963) could've been a whole lot better than it was would truly be an understatement like never before imagined.
With its utterly cheap, laughable, old-school visual effects - "Son of Flubber" was, indeed, a mighty disappointing SyFy/Comedy story concerning Prof. Brainard's brilliant invention of anti-gravity gas.
And, with that as its premiss - This picture's plot-line, literally, had a whole, big world of creative potential sitting right there on its very doorstep waiting to be explored to the max.
But - Unfortunately - This dismal "product-of-its-time" wimped out to the absolute nth degree.
And - As a result - All that "Son of Flubber" amounted to being was just another pathetic pile of forgettable nonsense that had "childish drivel" clearly written all over it.
