In the evening hours after 8 frogs leave their ponds and go on their flying lily pads and fly around the neighborhood. The frogs chase dogs, and break into peoples houses to watch TV. However when the sun comes up the frogs the frogs leave their lily pads on the road and hop back to their ponds before anyone wakes up. In the end the police are left to investigate where all the lily pads came from that were all over the city.
