Art in a Suitcase journeys through the solar system with the assistance of Cub Canabearal, the Astronaut Bear. The program starts with amazing facts about the star of our solar system, the sun. Next, individuals are chosen to represent and characterize each planet. Who will get to have over 20 moons? Who will be the smallest planet, the coldest planet or the planet with rings? Amazing lunar facts about Earth's moon and a discussion of the manned moon missions follow.

The trip ends with the children drawing pictures of themselves as NASA astronauts.
