The Blue Yonder 4 Mar. 2005

I saw this movie several years ago on TV. Sadly Disney has not seen fit to put it on DVD yet. One can only hope they will since they are releasing several of the other movies now. Peter Coyote, Art Carney, and Huckleberry Fox all turn in wonderful performances. Henry played by Carney plays the part of Jonathan's, Fox, grandfather. He tells him stories of how his great grandfather, Coyote, tried to cross the Atlantic by plane before Lindbergh did it. Jonathan uses a time machine to go back and try to help his great grandfather succeed. A great movie for the whole family. I sure would buy it if I could get it on DVD.

I love this movie and it is actully worth about $80 because it is discontinued 29 Oct. 2009
By Scott D. Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
I have this movie on VHS and I love this movie and it plays great. I wish it was on DVD but no dice yet. I love it just as much as I did when I was a kid. Jump at your chance to grab this classic which Disney seems to have forgotten about. I have had the VHS in my possesion for about 10 years now still love and pull it out every once in a while to relive my childhood. It was pretty tough to trach down back then it because it was discontinued. Every home Disney should not be without it. Buy it buy it now.

The Blue Yonder 15 Oct. 2011

I was delighted to find this movie at Amazon. Many years ago I was able to make a poor quality VHS copy from one of the movie channels. I had this movie along with another on the same tape.

Amy, the gal that sent me the Disney movie on the VHS tape was most kind as she sent along a note telling me to let her know if I was the least bit unhappy.

The package arrived, overpacked to protect the tape and in excellent condition. I have since moved the tape to DVD so I can play it on all of my digital equipment.

I am a 72 year old kid and this movie takes me back to my days in the Civil Air Patrol where I got to fly in small planes often.

Many thanks, Amy and many thanks Amazon
Great movie but... 1 Jan. 2011

I saw this on the Disney channel back when it first came out in 1985. At first I was bothered by Jonathan's (Huckleberry Fox)70's mullety hairstyle. Was he a boy or a girl? That and the fact that I walked in on the middle of the show where he's dressed in old-fashioned clothes must have added to my confusion on his gender, therefore leading to my initial biased opinion.
But I was eventually drawn to it as my grandfather loved airplanes and had one of his own that he had built. I was drawn into the movie. I am not much of a sci-fi person so I find the thought of time travel very bizarre and hard to comprehend. So the movie was a bit strange, but really quite good.

When it first came out on Disney, it was known as "The Blue Yonder", after pilot Max Knickerbocker's biplane. However, they later revised it and added more scenes (or maybe just added clips they cut out of Blue Yonder) and released it as the Disney Sunday Movie known as "Time Flyer". I liked that version best as it made more sense.

Jonathan goes back in time to meet his grandfather Max and he is WAY out of place in his grandfather's world--including his 1980s flamboyant clothes. He acts like a goon! He should know he is in another time but of course he is just an ignorant kid. It is funny and interesting. One of my favorite scenes which was not on the original movie (Blue Yonder) was in "Time Flyer" when Jonathan walks into a MacDonald's and asks for a quarter pounder. Apparently MacDonald's didn't sell quarter pounders in those days!! (Or maybe that MacDonald's had nothing to do with the fast food chain--apparently if I remember correctly, it was a grocery store, and the fast food chain is spelled "McDonalds"). I guess he goes back to the 20's...He eventually meets up with his grandfather Max, who shows Jonathan the "smallest radio in the world" with is gigantic to Jonathan, since he is from another time!! Jonathan sure gives himself away with his ignorance of that time era!!

Max Knickerbocker is another Amelia Earhart; a male version, that is. He had set out on a flight and vanished, so Jonathan had gone back in time to try to stop him from making that fateful flight.
Sad bittersweet movie!! Weird, thinking of going back in time to meet your grandparents who died before you were born, and to see your grandmother pregnant with your own father--and being able to tell your grandmother that yes, she is having a boy, because it's your father!! Fortunately Max finally believes him. After all, it is Max who thought up the theory of time travel, and years later his best friend (Jonathan's neighbor) Henry, who was dying of heart failure at the end of the movie, I guess had built the time machine but never tried it out but Jonathan decides to step up to the plate.
It is good but I can't stand to watch it, it makes me cry too much!! Especially when Henry, at the very end, says. "Goodbye, Jonathan." and you KNOW he is going to die--so heartbreaking for a child!!
