In this Disney sci-fi comedy from 1978, a UFO captained by a cat-like extraterrestrial enlists three scientists to help to repair his damaged spaceship and reunite with his mothership. Featuring a talking cat with a magical collar versus inept army officials and foreign spies, the film is full of silly sight gags and imaginative imagery.
