All of the animal from all the continents, it appears, are gathered around a frozen lake and ice skating, playing hockey and, in general showing off and usually end up crashing through the ice. A romantic, crooning monkey serenades the lady of his dreams...a blushing hippo...while three of the most-badly animated mice in all cartoon-land take on a rhino in ice hockey. Written by

This is pretty much of a generic van Beuren cartoon from Mannie Davis and John Foster at this stage, featuring the usual assortment of animal characters doing winter sports on a frozen lake, including skating and ice hockey. It begins with a rather elaborate sequence of countermovement as characters skate in various directions and the figures are done in some detail with elaborate black and white backgrounding for the period, but the quality soon eases off, both in terms of cheating shots -- the first sequence soon reveals itself as a looped serious of movement -- and in the typical weightless, insubstantial way the characters move. Certainly not the worst cartoon made in this period, it won't add much to your enjoyment of the stuff.
