Spike the bulldog, grateful to Jerry for getting him out of the dogcatcher's van, offers to help the little mouse any time he whistles. Tom, Jerry's feline tormentor, seeks to overcome this new disadvantage.
Jerry and some little baby mouse (with diapers) floods the kitchen at Tom's house by turning on all the faucets, making a pool and then freezing it with a couple of tubes from the refrigerator. They now have their ice-skating pond in which they can slide and skate and have a merry old time. They even rig up a spotlight and pretend they are in the ice follies.
Tom hears noise coming from the kitchen, goes to investigate and sees the situation. He goes after the mice but, of course, is sliding all over the place. That part isn't too funny but when Tom dons skates, there are some clever scenes.
Overall, a "fair" short - seen better, seen worse.
