Jumpin' Jupiter is called upon by Rupe Gloop of the Sloopgoop Soup Company utilizing "Earth's most powerful transmitter". Jumpin' Jupiter receives the signal with his "magnetic ears" on his personal wavelength.

Rupe wants Jumpin' Jupiter to look for an interplanetary market for the company's soup, as it is suffering from lackluster sales on Earth.

Jupiter goes to the moon. He visits with the Lunar Viceroy of Vittles, who tells him that they don't eat soup, and eat things like stewed golf balls and cheese instead. The Viceroy says he'd like to go to Earth to check out the soup at any rate. Jupiter suspects the Viceroy just wants a free ride to Earth, but takes him on his back anyway.

The Viceroy of Vittles tries the soup in his hair. The soup works excellently to keep his bristly hair down. The people of the Moon have sought for a long time for just such a product, and the Viceroy of Vittles orders a "million cases" to be shipped to the Moon at once by the Sloopgoop Soup Company.
