A crew of Martians overhears a radio broadcast of Orson Welle's _War of the Worlds_ coming from Earth, and, thinking the Martian fleet is attacking Earth, they land their broken-down ship in a backwater mid-American town. As luck would have it, they land on Halloween and get mistaken for trick-or-treaters. Comedy ensues as the Martians try to get taken seriously.

- They're hip! They're hilarious!
- [after crash-landing] Blaznee: Well, let's see. We got a torqued-out digi-framus, our mega-spaz redundancy pile is on the blink, and it looks like we bruised our boo-boo.
Deputy Pillsbury: No license, no registration, no plates, no headlights, no taillights, no WHEELS, and I caught you going 3000 miles per hour. That's [punches on calculator] Deputy Pillsbury: 2945 miles per hour in excess of the posted limit. Blaznee: Great. There goes my insurance.

Captain Bipto: Meet us at the Wrenchmuller farm. Bipto out. Blaznee: Hey, where do you guys grow your wrenchmullers?
Captain Bipto: We did win, didn't we? Blaznee: No, but if we think fast enough we might just live to lie about it.
- The call letters for the radio station playing the "War of the Worlds" program are W.E.L.Z. after Orson Welles, or H.G. Wells, or both.
Many of the special effects shots were done "in camera". Meaning they were composed on the raw film.
Star Ariana Richards received an "Introducing" credit although it was her fifth feature film role.
Kathy introduces her three 'cousins' as "Clutch", "Spinner" and "Paddlefoot"; these are the names of the main characters of the cult classic cartoon "Clutch Cargo".
