We prefer the original release title of Disney's A Spaceman in King Arthur's Court: Unidentified Flying Oddball. In this new twist on an old Mark Twain yarn, NASA scientist Dennis Dugan and his robot clone are whisked back in time to the days of King Arthur (Kenneth More). After performing several acts of "sorcery" with the state-of-the-art paraphernalia at his disposal, Dugan incurs the wrath of in-house magician Merlin (Ron Moody). Jim Dale costars as the most hyperkinetic Sir Mordred that you're ever likely too see. Previous versions of Twain's Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court were filmed in 1921, 1931 and 1948; Spaceman in King Arthur's Court would be followed by an early-1990s TV adaptation of Connecticut Yankee starring The Cosby Show's Keshia Knight Pulliam, and by Disney's 1995 theatrical feature, A Kid in King Arthur's Court.
