In "The Nutty Professor," Professor Julius Kelp (Lewis), is a nerdy, unkempt, buck-toothed, introverted, socially inept university professor who always incurs the wrath of the university administration by continually destroying the classroom laboratory. When a football-playing bully humiliates him, Kelp invents a serum that turns him into the extremely smooth, cool, and somewhat obnoxious girl-chasing hipster, Buddy Love. This newfound persona gives him the confidence to pursue one of his students, Stella Purdy (Stella Stevens).
"The Incredible Mr. Limpet" is a 1964 live-action/animated film from Warner Brothers about a human named Henry Limpet who turns into a talking fish and helps the U.S. Navy to defeat Nazis using his new "thrum," an intense noise that disrupts underwater instruments and weapons.
