Dani is a teenage actress continually left in charge of her annoying younger brother Max, his none-too-bright sidekick Ben and their youngest sibling, 'the baby from hell'.

As she can't go out with her friends, Toby and Sam, the trio of girls end up spending most of their time in Dani's house in her hip den hang-out. With so much time on her hands the imaginative actress conjures up a variety of comic situations and locations for the trio.

Dani and her pals assume that their antics are being broadcast to the world and beyond. In fact their zany activities are being closely observed from on high by a pair of aliens, Zarg and Zark, who are hooked on Dani's show.
