Moon Zero Two (1969): a recap (part 9 of 10)

When we last left Bill and Clementine, Lithuania suffered a major setback in their plot to annex the Moon, but it left the Moon Bug shot to hell.

But never fear, because it still has all the pointlessness and incompetence you’ve come to know and love from ol’ Coleman!
