Bumbling NASA food concessionaires Barney (Chuck McCann) and Junior (Bob Denver) were loading supplies on the spaceship PXL-1236 at Cape Kennedy when Junior mistakenly hit the launch button – Barney had said: “lunch” not “launch”.
The spaceship sent them to a distant planet where they encountered Honk (Patty Maloney), a furry creature with a horn on the top of his head who never spoke, only honked.
The hapless duo spent most of the season trying to avoid the various creatures/aliens they encountered (and who captured them every week) while they tried to get home.
In the final episode, Barney and Junior gained access to a time machine-like device that took them back to the spaceship, right before Junior hit the launch button.
Missing their friend Honk, Barney and Junior repeated the launch and started their adventures all over again.
The program was created by Sid and Marty Krofft, who also served as executive producers.
