Trivia / Flubber

  • Actor Allusion: This isn't the first time Robin Williams plays a character who falls in love with and later marries a character named Sara, albeit spelled differently.
  • Creator Killer: Despite the movie not doing that badly at the box office, this was the second and last movie Great Oaks Entertainment ever made.
  • Defictionalization: People have made Flubber.
  • Merchandise-Driven: Not only were two types of flubber available in stores when the movie was in theaters (a vaguely humanoid stressball as seen in the big dance number, plus a thicker slime-like substance), but also an electronic talking Weebo toy that spoke likes from the movie.
  • Release Date Change: An insert inside the 2012 Blu-Ray of Babes in Toyland promotes a 2012 Blu-Ray release of Flubber, in honor of its 15th Anniversary. However, the anniversary came and went without the movie coming to Blu-Ray. Disney provided no explanation for this delay, nor have they revealed a new release date.
