His young grandson, who assists him in his research, secures the help of Professor Garcia, a long standing colleague and friend of the scientist.

Assisted by a group of children, spending their holidays in the Secret Valley Camp, Professor Garcia and the young boy build a flying bus. They set off in pursuit of the kidnappers and attempt, at the same time, to complete Poopsnagle’s unfinished work. They are helped in their quest by a document that Garcia and the children gradually manage to decipher. But alas, there is a traitor in their midst passing information to the evil kidnappers of Professor Poopsnagle: Count Sator and his accomplice.

However, against all odds, and throughout countless and often irresistibly amusing adventures, Professor Garcia and his young group of friends finally win the day. Time after time, the children show great courage and skill. Matt, the traitor, sees the error of his ways and they all live happily ever after.
