Format: DVD
Just reading the list of clebs in the film is impressive. Stars from the past such as Jim Dale (Mordred), Ron Moody (Merlin) and Kenneth More (King Arthur). The film itself well concidering this was made way before the first ever space shuttle Disney didn't get it far wrong. As for mixing history with our time it was very funny seeing them from King Arthurs day seeing an astronaut for first time including space helmet. I have to put my hands up BIG FAN of King Arthur and the stories of Camelot and the Knights of the round table and they don't stray too far from the stories we all know. This film has a slight love story too which helps the story flow. What also is funny is Dennis Dugan plays two roles as he plays the android a double of the astronaut who falls in love with a young girl who thinks her father is a goose under a spell from Merlin. This is a very pleasant family film for everyone. Me being a sci-fi fan I wasn't disappointed watched it many times.
If you want a film to compliment this one look at Whoopi Goldberg in another Disney film 'A Knight In Camelot'

Like other reviewers, this is a film with which I have been familiar for many years under the title "The Spaceman and King Arthur". Although basically a children's comedy film, my wife and I still enjoy it immensely, despite some rather outdated graphics. We first saw it many years ago on TV and videoed it although, regrettably, this no longer works and, in any event, it contained numerous annoying commercial breaks, which is why - being a child at heart - I jumped at the chance to order the dvd when I discovered it on Amazon.

Briefly, it tells the story of an astronaut, who becomes trapped in a spacecraft about to be launched on what is intended to be an unmanned space mission carrying an android constructed in his likeness. The pair end up travelling backwards in time, returning to Earth and landing in Camelot in the time of King Arthur. The astronaut (regarded as a monster due to his space helmet which has become stuck and is only removed with the help of a "wench" when, after being seized and interrogated, the King misunderstands his request for a "wrench") undergoes a series of challenges and punishments, including attempted burning at the stake. Eventually, the King and his advisers realise the astronaut's good intentions as he and the android endeavour - with the help of a serf and another "comely wench" (adding a touch of innocent romance)- to save Camelot by exposing and foiling a plot to overthrow the King.

A great family film for a little light relief.

I previously knew this film as "A Spaceman in the Court of King Arthur".
Nasa had intended to send out a spaceship with a robot on board.The designer accidently was on board when the ship took off. Instead of going into space it went back in time the time of King Arthur. He and the robot foil a plot to overthrow Arthur, both fall in love with a peasant girl.
It is a light, pleasant film, which I enjoyed.

wonderful movie based on Mark Twains "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthurs Court". in this update the time travel back to the Camelot is updated to a space ship with a trapped scientist accidentally aboard.

If The Spaceman and King Arthur aka Unidentified Flying Oddball merited an entry in The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, it would doubtless read 'mostly harmless.' The kind of family special effects comedy that Disney continued to push out to diminishing returns long after Uncle Walt left the building and audiences lost interest, this umpteenth reworking of Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in the Court of King Arthur doesn't have many jokes and even fewer of them are any good, but the film's so good-natured and relentlessly eager to please that you can't really hold it against it. Denis Dugan is the NASA scientist who finds himself accidentally shot into space in an experimental spacecraft alongside his robot double and ends up going back in time to King Arthur's court where he crosses swords with Jim Dale's evil Sir Mordred (in Disney's final attempt to turn him into a US star) and Ron Moody's Merlin, for once on the side of the villains. Nothing terribly imaginative or amusing happens, but it passes the time pleasantly enough, Ron Goodwin's score revisiting the odd motif from his earlier score for Sword of Lancelot, Paul Beeson's photography throwing up a couple of pretty images, and Kenneth More ending his movie career with his dignity intact as King Arthur, displaying some nice chemistry with John Le Mesurier's vague Sir Gawain even if it's no valedictory performance.

No extras on the DVD, which uses the film's American title, Unidentified Flying Oddball, but a decent widescreen transfer.
