Plot

Gag #1 (Deflating Planet)

Marvin the Martian claims a planet for Mars. Unfortunately, the elasticity of the planet is too strong for Marvin to plant his flag into it, but it eventually plants itself after Marvin prods the planet hard enough. At first, Marvin is satisfied with his toil; this turns to dismay as he realizes the planet is actually a supersized balloon, causing it to comically deflate.

Gag #2 (Giant Alien Mouth)

Marvin the Martian claims a planet for Mars. Unfortunately, the planet seems to be anthropomorphic as it eats his flag and it then proceeds to devour his ray gun when he asks for it back. Enraged, Marvin demands to fight with the planet; this turns to cowardice as he realizes the planet is actually a living being, and is instantly eaten alive.

Gag #3 (Split-Screen Marvin)

Marvin the Martian claims a planet for Mars. Unfortunately, his flag somehow ejects itself out of the planet's surface due to another flagpole disrupting it, so he steps on the flagpole and replants his flag. At first, Marvin is annoyed with the same flagpole interrupting his mission; this turns out to be so because a parallel Marvin has been trying to plant his flag on the bottom half and thus, they continue to scuffle over their flags.

Gag #4 (Little Martian)

Marvin the Martian claims a planet for Mars. Unfortunately, he accidentally plants his flag on the home of a seemingly harmless Martian.

Gag #5 (Flag Won’t Stay Straight)

Marvin the Martian claims a planet for Mars. Unfortunately, after he plants his flag, it began to tilt, but, when he tried to straighten it, the planet itself tilts. It happened until the flag is perfectly straight, but, the planet tilts to one side and Marvin grabs the flag for dear life, only for a boulder to collide on him.

Gag #6 (Planet Split in Two)

Marvin the Martian claims a planet for Mars. Unfortunately, when he plants his flag, a crack appears. He brushes off the crack. But, it appears and it extends all the way to a mountain and back to the flag, and then, the planet breaks in two and Marvin falls.

Gag #7 (Bowling Ball)

Marvin the Martian claims a planet for Mars. Unfortunately, when he tries to plant his flag, it didn't plant. And he keeps this up until the flag actually dents. But, then, Marvin walks right into a hole and falls down. A bowler constellation picks up the bowling ball planet and rolls it and it hits the planets.
