When bitter King Rupert makes Herman the Wizard cast a spell on a frog pond, strange happenings take place. You see, frogs are the happiest of all creatures, and the king hates it when others are happy when he is not. The spell makes all the frogs miserable because now they wish for things that they were always content to live without. But only one wish comes true and this makes the other frogs very mad. Lady Frog wishes to become a human. Her wish is granted and she becomes Princess Amy, the snobby daughter of the king. Ben the prince of frogs unknowingly teams up with Martha the Fairy Frog Mother and Herman the Wizard. The two magicians have a plan to try to restore things back to normal. But Herman's plan is discovered by the king and in the morning it will be off with his head. It is left up to Ben and Martha to save the day.
