It’s time we visit Medfield College again by taking a look at the 1972 sequel to The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes: Now You See Him, Now You Don’t! Directed by Robert Butler, this sequel brings back the basic concept of our college protagonists discovering some sort of scientific breakthrough. In the first film, it was the ability to make a human’s brain work like a computer; in this film, it’s invisibility. Is this sequel better or worse than its predecessor? Read on to find out!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

Released to theaters in 1973, Superdad was the Disney movie made to address the “generation gap”: the differences in outlooks and lifestyles between the adults and college-aged kids during the Vietnam War Era. Was the film a success? Nope, no it wasn’t. Many people consider this to be the worst (or at least one of the worst) live-action Disney films ever made! Just to show how little faith Disney had in this film: they kept the film sitting on the Disney shelves for a whole year before they decided to release it in theaters!

So, I figured it’s best that I hurry up and check this one off the list as quickly as I can! Here is my review of Superdad!
