A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
Robert Picardo and Dick Miller both appear in Innerspace (1987), starring Dennis Quaid.
He's about to say something.
Wak: Ehhhhhhhhhhh, what's up doc?
Ben Crandall: What?
During the maiden voyage of the Thunder Road, Wolfgang removes his glasses and puts them in his jacket/shirt pocket before putting on his gas mask. After putting on the mask his glasses are back on underneath it and he is not seen putting them on.
The shorter version released on home video as "A special home video version of Explorers", actually contains a scene which does not appear in some theatrical versions. In this scene, Ben falls asleep in class and finds himself in a dream where all his classmates have disappeared. With his glowing gift from his alien friends in hand, he rises out of his seat to find the Thunder Road in the corner of the classroom looking brand new. (It had fallen into the lake while returning home after their visit with the aliens.) Ben then finds himself flying with Wolfgang, Darren and Lori.
