The film stars Fred MacMurray as Professor Ned Brainard.

The film was a huge success at the box-office, and two years later became the first Disney film to have a sequel, 1963's Son of Flubber.

The original 1961 film was one of the first Disney films to be colorized (for the 1986 video release), and, along with 1959's The Shaggy Dog and 1963's Son of Flubber, it is one of Disney's few black-and-white films to be produced after 1941.
