"Thanks for the Buggy Ride" is the name of a tune penned by would-be songwriter Joe Hall (Glenn Tryon). On the verge of selling his song to an important music publisher, Joe loses his opportunity when the publisher is inadvertently insulted by the hero's sweetheart, nightclub chanteuse Jenny (Laura La Plante). Hoping to make up for her blunder, Jenny dons a disguise and attends a fancy party for vaudeville headliners. She manages to gain access to popular entertainer Trixie Friganza (playing herself), who loves Hall's song and agrees to plug it in her act. Good-hearted Friganza also arranges a tender reunion between the estranged hero and heroine. Thanks for the Buggy Ride was directed by William A. Seiter, then the husband of star Laura La Plante.
