A crowd grows as Lum and Abner make final preparations, and pack the rocket. Is Abner just making excuses when he wants to go home to get his pair of galoshes? What would Lizabeth say if he got his feet all wet on the trip to Mars, and all because he forgot his galoshes. Abner grumbles as he boards the rocket, and Lum gives instructions for Cedric to ignite the dynamite engine.
Squire races in so Lum can meet Mr Corey, a stranger Squire met at the train depot, and may be an investor in the rocket company. How will this change the launch date?
Squire has his doubts the expedition will ever get off the ground, but Lum doesn’t want to hear it. Will Squire make one last big sale, and resume his role of importance in the company?
Confusion is the rule as Cedric and Mousey stand by the dynamite switch, and Lum gets ready to board the rocket… then it all goes wrong.
