Kasperl and his friend Seppel, who are actually busy preparing the launch of their self-constructed moon rocket, vow to catch the wicked robber Hotzenplotz, who stole their beloved grandmothers' musical coffee mill. Unfortunately, they fall into the hands of the robber Hotzenplotz and the vicious wizard Petrosilius Zwackelmann. In his castle they surprisingly find the beautiful fairy Amaryllis, who must now also be saved. Will the two friends manage to free themselves from their captivity?
