Professor Simon Crane is one of the first human beings to invent a rocket capable of travel into space. Upon the completion of his rocket, Crane, his daughter Betty and Professor Philo Zog would use it to travel to the Moon. There, they would have Zog's robot Electro explore the Moons surface.

When Electro would be captured by the alien named Gnorr, Crane and his fellow space travelers would destroy the aliens fortress with grenades and recover the captured robot.
