The series was set in Memphis at a fictional mansion called Toad Hall, which was owned by one Big Guy Beck, a land baron. He had recently died of an illness, and before he was cryogenically frozen, he had made out a videotaped will, a piece of which was played every week, by his lawyer, George Wilhoit.

The will's terms were harshest on Big Guy's oldest son, the snobbish Marshall Beck (Michael Lombard) and his equally snobbish wife Carlotta (Dixie Carter). They wouldn't be able to collect a dime of the money unless they accepted Big Guy's illegitimate son, Wild Bill Westchester (Jerry Hardin) and his good-natured but ditzy wife Bootsie (Ann Wedgeworth) into their family.

Many of the situations stemmed from the conniving Marshall and Carlotta's schemes to declare the constraints of the will invalid and also to rid themselves of Wild Bill and Bootsie, for to their minds, with them; not to mention everyone else in the family all gone, the snobbish couple could live it up on the money. Their wildly outlandish schemes usually and inevitably ended up failing miserably.

Also appearing were Nedra Volz, who played Big Guy's first wife, Winona Beck, called Mother B., who had escaped from her nursing home; and Charles Frank, who played Big Guy's younger son Stanley.

The independently wealthy Stanley was the nicest of the whole lot. Usually it was Stanley that was able to protect Wild Bill and Bootsie (who he accepted from the outset) from the devious scheming of his brother and sister-in-law.

Delta Burke played Big Guy's younger second wife, Kathleen, who was wily in her own right but was scorned (as was almost everyone else in Toad Hall) by Carlotta, who was utterly shameless in her snobbery.
