To pay back his increasing debts, Father writes a comic opera, Frolic of the Frogs , with the financial backing of Carelton Bayne, who fancies Father's youngest daughter. On the day of the opera's opening, Fredericka, the elder daughter, is to be married, but when Father receives a frantic call from the opera's leading lady, who is about to be replaced by one of Bayne's former lovers, he abandons the wedding and rushes to the theater in the honeymoon car. Arriving too late to stop the exodus of both male and female stars, Father steps in as the leading man after one panicked rehearsal and is vigorously booed by the audience. The show in ruins, Father slugs Bayne and is hauled off to jail but organizes the other prisoners and effects a clever escape. Several adventures, car chases and misunderstandings later, Father and family finally reunite for the wedding.
