    Not on Netflix. Was cancelled, or was no good. Mickey Rooney wasn’t a good, nor a bad actor, but he was too fat to play Edison. This was a celebrity B-movie, at best. Like a movie about the young Britney Spears. Actually (and I am *not* gay), I own that on VHS and it’s pretty good. She’s not the southern “white trash” she DEVO’d into once she got truly famous.

    Bye.

    Mickey Rooney has the longest movie career of any actor alive (or dead). His energy jumps off the screen. Most child actors grow up and vanish but Mr. Rooney is the energizer bunny of actors. It is hard not to enjoy his work.
