After shaking & moonwalking, the Spaceketeers think they're ready to go to the moon - but they realize they don't have a spaceship. Lexine suggests that they use their imaginations, & they all board the pretend spaceship. Just like he did at WASA, The Count provides the Countdown for them. The pretend ship blasts off, & the Spaceketeers wiggle around until the ship stops shaking. Elmo steers the ship as they float around in pretend space, avoiding the shooting stars. Finally, the ship lands on the moon, & they all get out & walk upon the moon slowly.
