In the still great 1961 movie The AbsentMinded Professor, professor Ned Brainard invents a bouncy substance called Flubber which enables him not only to control the weather and punish competing suitors, but gives him an almost unmatched ability to cheat at sports. In the first movie he glues it to the shoes of his local basketball team, enabling them to jump out of the gym, quite literally. In the 1963 sequel, he converts Flubber to a gas form stuck it in a football, enabling his alma mater’s struggling club to literally launch a football into space.
