perhaps this example might help you:


r0 = 10;

ll = {l1, l2, l3} = 
      Table[(r = r0 + Random[Real, {-3, 3}]; 
          Table[{r += Random[Real, {0, .25}], 
              Sin[r] + Random[Real, {-.25, .25}]}, {50}]), {3}];

<< "Graphics`MultipleListPlot`"

listp = MultipleListPlot[ll, SymbolShape -> PlotSymbol[Box, Filled ->
    SymbolStyle -> {Hue[1/2], Hue[2/3], Hue[3/4]}, 
    PlotStyle -> PointSize[0.01]]

rng = First[FullOptions[listp, PlotRange]]

funp = Plot[Sin[t], Evaluate[Prepend[rng, t]], PlotStyle -> {GrayLevel[.5]},

    DisplayFunction -> Identity]

Show[listp, funp]
