Gogo, a Martian teenager, is sent to Earth to prepare the way for an invasion. The first Earthling he meets, one Aunt Wendy, is a rich widow who runs a dress shop catering to teenagers. Her nephew, Big Lunk, is a volleyball-loving guy with little interest in romance, which causes frustration for his girlfriend Connie. Naturally, Gogo meets Connie and they fall in love. Meanwhile, Aunt Wendy's shady neighbor and his gang concoct a scheme to part Aunt Wendy from her cash. Also meanwhile, the local motorcycle gang wants revenge on the volleyball players for... getting footprints on their beach. Somehow all the subplots come together at the pajama party.

More Movie Taglines:
- The Party Picture That Takes Off Where The Others Pooped Out!
- It's a sort of late... late show with a teen-age twist
- When the Pajama Tops meet the Pajama Bottoms someone's gonna have a Fit!
- Fleegle: What are we looking for? J. Sinister Hulk: Look for anything suspicious! Chief Rotten Eagle: The only thing suspicious is us!
Big Bang The Martian: [Talking about Go-Go the Martian to Socum] It's not that I don't like him, it's just I can't stand him!
Connie: [Talking about Go-Go the Martian] This kid is a kook! Aunt Wendy: No, dear not a kook - a Martian. Connie: A Martian! Aunt Wendy: From Mars. Connie: Both you birds belong in a clock.
- Although he doesn't appear onscreen, Keenan Wynn has an uncredited role in this film: he was Aunt Wendy's late husband, Henry, and a painting of him appears above her money safe when she makes withdrawals.
Credited as Teri Hope, look for a very young Teri Garr, prominently featured in most of the major scenes. She's often just to the right of Annette Funicello in the dance and fashion show scenes.
Frequently referred to as an entry in the "Beach Party" film series, with the relatively brief appearances of Harvey Lembeck as Eric Von Zipper and Candy Johnson as Candy supporting that, the fact that major players Annette Funicello, Jody McCrea and Don Rickles are not in their usual roles (Connie, Big Lunk and Big Bang [a Martian] here instead of Dolores/Dee Dee [a nickname], Bonehead and Jack Fanny/Big Drag/Big Drop [the man kept changing his "name" with his career] in the other movies, respectively) suggests the contrary with much more strength. However similar the characterizations are, they are at least nominally different characters.
Cameo: [Toni Basil] During the 'fashion show' at Dorothy Lamour's store, watch for the last model who comes out - it's young choreographer, and eventual singer of "Mickey", Toni Basil.
