''Young Einstein'' is an intentionally inaccurate portrayal of UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein as the son of an apple farmer in Tasmania in the early 1900s. In this movie, Einstein splits a beer atom (with a chisel) in order to add bubbles to beer, discovers the theory of relativity and travels to Sydney to patent it. Here he invents the electric guitar and surfing, while romancing an anachronistic Marie Curie. He invents rock and roll and uses it to save the world from being destroyed due to misuse of a nuclear reactor under the watching eye of a typically inaccurate CharlesDarwin.

Not to be confused with ''WesternAnimation/LittleEinsteins''.
