Filmmaker John Hughes died six years ago.

"Classic," said Justin Henry's character in Universal Pictures' "Sixteen Candles."

In his honor, here are some of his lesser-known gems. 

"Baby's Day Out": A baby escapes and chills with a gorilla.

"Just Visiting": Time travel gone wrong. Think dragons and Christina Applegate.

"Flubber": A nutty professor makes some unruly Jell-O. Hilarity ensues.

"Oh boy," said Robin Williams' character in Buena Vista Pictures' "Flubber."
