Since none of Marylin's suitors ever get past the front door, Grandpa decides to turn a frog into her own personal prince. A nearsighted one at that, to compensate for her 'plain looks'. When the rest of the family is out to the drive-in, Marylin accidentally locks herself in her room. A young man passing by mistakingly thinks she is being held prisoner.
