Plot Summary
Merlin Jones (Tommy Kirk), the whiz kid from "The Misadventures of Merlin Jones," returns with more hijinks in this two-part movie. The first finds Merlin using a chimpanzee to perfect a sleep-training system to help the school football team with their exams. In the second part, Merlin builds a pedal-powered flying machine in a competition to win a sizable donation to the school, again aiding the football program. However, the machine doesn't work exactly as planned.
