Doug Blake (Carson) is dumped as a manager by Gary Mitchell (Bowman). He goes to New York to find a new singer to replace Gary on the Hour of Enchantment radio show. While in New York, he discovers Martha Gibson (Day) turning records on a jukebox factory. He takes her to Los Angeles and tries to introduce her to Felix Hofer (Sakall). his efforts lead to a series of communication failings.
Meanwhile Martha has begun to fall in love with Gary. Doug takes her to a party at Garys house where Gary gets drunk and is unable to sing on his radio program. Martha replaces him and becomes successful. She replaces Gary on the Hour of Enchantment radio show.
Gary, whose ego has driven away all of the people who helped him, cannot find anyone who will hire him or even represent him. Knowing how Martha feels about Gary, Doug helps him come back, but Gary goes back to his old ways and drives Martha away. Martha then realizes that she really loves Doug and makes up with him.
The film is perhaps best remembered today for an extended dream sequence combining animation and live action which featured a cameo appearance by Bugs Bunny, dancing with Jack Carson and Doris Day to the tune of Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, which was a favorite of animation director Friz Freleng.
