The story is about two widowed people with large families who meet and fall in love. Frank (played by Henry Fonda) has ten children, while Helen (Lucille Ball) has eight. With so many children, it takes much discussion and indecision before they decide that they really do want to get married.
Trying to blend the two families together (eighteen children in all, aged eighteen down to about two) produces significant difficulties... as might be expected. The children are not particularly unpleasant, but they're all quite lively and none of them is keen on the idea of a whole host of new step-siblings.
