Melvin Byrd, who dreams of being a scientist, is a Cape Kennedy “miniscule molecular particle surveillance monitor” – in short, a janitor. His job is to keep a major rocket project completely dust-free, and this he does with his own hilariously fantastic inventions – including a literal attack on dirt by a “knight on a white horse”. In his work, he meets Judy, a chimp involved in a top-secret project, which leads Melvin into the one room strictly off-limits to him. Not until he has entered the project room does Melvin learn that any man entering it will be negatively ionized – making him fly like a bird. Birds Do It, the 1966 Andrew Marton science fiction space mission fantasy comedy (“Soupy Sales is flying high… and the race for space, is up in the air!”; “Soupy Sales… You’re for the birds!”; “Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No… It’s Soupy-man!”; “Why does he fly? He’s up in the air… He’s all at sea… He’s downright funtastic!”; “Soupy Sales swings it and wings it!”) starring Soupy Sales, Tab Hunter, Arthur O’Connell, Edward Andrews, Doris Dowling, Beverly Adams, and Judy the Chimp!
