Story: Double bill of classic comedy featuring Lou Abbott and Bud Costello. In 'Abbott and Costello Meet The Invisible Man' (1951) retired detectives Bud (Abbott) and Lou (Costello) find themselves helping accused killer Tommy Nelson (Arthur Franz) when he convinces them of his innocence. When the police attempt to arrest Tommy he eludes them by injecting himself with an invisibility serum created by the uncle (Gavin Muir) of his fiancée, Helen (Nancy Guild). Tommy now persuades Lou to find the real killer by going undercover as a boxer, and is forced to help the little fellow out when he has to show his mettle in the ring. In 'Abbott and Costello Go to Mars' (1953) Lester (Abbot) and Orville (Costello) are loading supplies onto a rocket ship when it accidentally takes off. Their first port of call is the New Orleans Mardi Gras - which the duo mistakenly believe to be Mars - where they are accosted by bank robber Mugsy (Horace McMahon) and forced to pilot their ship to the planet Venus. Once there, Lester and Orville find themselves the flavour of the month with the all-female population (men having been banned four centuries earlier), but just how long can this bizarre state of affairs be expected to last?
