"A cast of sweet, young topless girls with goofy antennae sprouting from their heads seals the deal. If not Wishman's best work, Nude on the Moon is certainly her most accessible." - Fred Beldin

"Let's tip our hats to Doris Wishman, an authentic feminist pioneer. She was probably the only, and certainly the most prolific, female director to *ahem* bust into the field of the '60s Nudie Flick." - Ken Begg

"They seem like such happy little nude people." - Andrew Borntreger

Dr. Huntley and Professor Nichols are able to complete their work on a moon rocket because of an unexpected inheritance. They travel to the moon, but find a lush garden paradise rather than a barren wasteland. They are captured by virtually naked telepathic humanoids and taken in front of the Great Council. The Moon Goddess decides that they should be allowed to continue their experiments, and Dr. Huntley begins to fall in love with her. Professor Nichols worries about getting Huntley to return to Earth.
