Mr. Fox orders a hot air balloon so that he can fly to the moon. Upon takeoff, he meets his elephant friend who not only wants to come along but wants to stop for some pizza. As the friends rise through the city, they meet more friends with more take-out suggestions. Soon the party consists of a fox, a pizza loving elephant, musical squirrels, a giraffe thirsty for milkshakes, a dancing rhino, and card-playing rabbits. The wind blows, the strings snap, and the balloon heads to the moon as the animals touch ground. But Mr. Fox isn't mad, he's too happy having fun with his friends.
