Children's comedy about the battle between an absent-minded professor and his arch-rival, who is intent on stealing the professor's 'flubber', a rubbery polymer with a life of its own.

As the inventor neglects everything but his cherished discovery, his scheming rival threatens to steal his fiancee. And with the college at which he works about to close, the professor must somehow use the 'flubber' to save the day.
