The action is set in and around a town called Little Twinge in the Kingdom of Aching.
After venturing into a mysterious woodland known as Fangthorn Forest, Prince Justin encounters a wicked witch called Repugna Coldfinger who, for purposes of her own, turns the unfortunate Royal into a frog. Escaping from his captures, the Frog Prince meets the forgetful Fairy Dewdrop, and although she cannot break the curse, she tries to counteract the magic by casting a spell to help him. She tells him all he needs is one kiss from a princess to transform him back – however the princess must not know that he is really a human prince or the spell will fail and he will remain a frog forever.
Meanwhile Dame Dotty Trotter has problems of her own, as she and her unruly staff attempt to secure a catering contract for the upcoming Diamond Jubilee of King Montgomery against rival restaurateur Cordelia Glitch.
