Coaches Sam Archer (John Amos) and Milo Jackson (Tim Conway) discover jungle boy Nanu (Jan-Michael Vincent) showing off his amazing physical abilities in the wilds of Africa. They bring him back to their college and transform him into a track star, thus saving their team from once again

being the laughing stock of the league. Among the complications is a witch doctor's spell that shrinks Jackson. Howard Cosell appears as himself, doing a better parody of his own sportscasting than any comedian could. This snappy family entry from Disney is blessed with some inventive direction

and a very funny performance from Conway.
