Philip Brainard is the protagonist of Flubber. He was portrayed by the late Robin Williams.


Not much information as to Philip's background is revealed, but what is revealed is that Philip has been working on an experiment of his for two years prior to the events of Flubber, which over the course of the movie is revealed to be a green substance, which Philip later names flubber (hence the name of the movie). Philip is also shown to be somewhat clumsy as well as forgetful, as revealed when Dr. Sara talks about two cases prior to the movie in which Philip failed to show up for his own wedding.
