Pooch the Pup is hoboing around the igloos. When a pretty girl's dog is frozen into a giant ice cube, Pooch has Old King Cold warm things up until a vengeful polar bear changes the weather settings to "Storm".

Many of the most frequently used gags in cartoons during this period were transformation gags, in which something turned to another. This cartoon plays a lot with that idea. When Pooch tells Old King Cold to "Turn on the Heat", His Majesty does just that, to the tune of the song from KEEP YOUR SUNNY SIDE UP. In that movie, this tune always produces the most bizarre choreography, full of sexual energy, giant bananas and similar effects. Here it converts Eskimo girls in shapeless leather into hula dancers.

Even though this cartoon is definitely pre-Code, Lantz' staff kept all the stuff safely on the symbolic level -- and no giant bananas. It's all amusingly bizarre.
