1)   A – Medfield is the setting for a slew of Disney films, including The Absent-Minded Professor and its sequel, as well as The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969), Now You See Him, Now You Don’t (1972), and The Strongest Man in the World (1975).
2)  C – Bud hasn’t skied yet, but we wouldn’t rule it out!
3)  B – Not a true story, but it did involve a real team – The Walt Disney Company owned the California Angels in 1994 when the film was made.
4)  A – In Million-Dollar Arm, a baseball scout turns to pro cricket players to look for the next great pitcher.
5)  A – We don’t recommend taking Goofy’s tips on the gridiron, but he did star in “How to Play Football.”
6)  A – Glory Road tells the story of the West Texas Miners – but all three films tell inspiring true sports stories.
