I would like to know why AR Broccoli and Fleming's estate would make this movie, since they had such success with the Bond films. Fleming died in 1964, and the movie was released in 1968. I would like to know what the connection is. CCBB is such a departure from Bond, I fail to understand why the same people who gave us adult spy films would make a G rated kids movie. Don't get me wrong, I love CCBB. I just don't understand the connection, and why this movie was made by this company. CCBB is more like a Disney movie. Can anyone help ?

It's because the same author who wrote adult spy books also wrote a G-rated kid's book.
Fleming wrote the story Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, apparently for his son. It was rather different from the movie. I only vaguely recall it now, though I remember it being quite different from the movie, and that it had a delicious fudge recipe in the back (the kids prevent a fudge shop in France from being robbed.)
