The Stooges meet up with Professor A.K. Rimple, an eccentric figure, and his daughter, who solicit the trio's assistance in a space expedition. Embarking on the mission, they arrive at the planet Sunev (a reverse spelling of Venus), where they encounter three captivating female extraterrestrials. Initially, an amicable interaction ensues, marked by literal sparks when the aliens bestow kisses upon the Stooges. However, the situation takes a perilous turn as the female beings exhibit cannibalistic tendencies, threatening to extract the Stooges' blood.
