At an astronomy colloquium, Professor Barbenfouillis (Stragglybeard) causes a stir by announcing that he intends to travel to the Moon. He organizes a visit to the workshop where his space capsule is being built. It is to be propelled to the Moon by a giant cannon. The launch is successful, and the six astronauts on board explore the lunar landscape and watch an Earthrise. They are taken prisoner by the Selenites - the indigenous inhabitants of the Moon - but manage to escape. One of their pursuers remains clinging to the fuselage of the capsule as it journeys back to Earth. On their return, the scientists are given a hero's welcome and triumphantly display their captive.
