Plot

A group of oil magnates are trying to think of new ways to attract business. One of them suggests that they contact an eccentric inventor (Pollard), who has devised a new gasoline substitute.

The inventor himself lives in a home filled with his strange inventions. When he gets the message from the oil company, he is excited about the opportunity to demonstrate his innovation, and jumps into his "magnet car".

The most famous sequence in the film shows Pollard using a large magnet to put his car into motion.

The sequence in which Pollard appears from around the corner and observes the multi-car collision was used on Sesame Street in an educational film about traffic lights, which premiered in the first episode of the show's second season in the fall of 1970.
