Kellog family gardner Angus notes the absence of Jock and assumes that he is dead. In the meantime, Jock's Scottish relative, Jepson, is in Tahiti, so Angus decides to take over Jepson's mansion and help a gang kidnap a girl named Daphne. Merlin catches wind of this and brings his family's portraits to life, all of whom help Merlin purge the mansion of the racketeers.
