A narrator details the journey of a spaceship, which flies through the (miniature) solar system. It bumps into the sun, moving it further away from the Earth. On the planet, Tingo and Niki sit outside while playing checkers, when they start to feel colder. They button up their sweaters and put on their scarves. Suddenly, it starts to snow.
The spaceship bounces about the solar system still, knocking against other planets before setting the Earth back into place. It then heads for Earth, now realized as a miniature device and crashes in the yard. As Niki and Tingo continue their game, the ship's operator tries to get their attention.
