When the candle stick maker resigns from their singing trio, the butcher and baker go in search of a bass for the contest at the fair. They find the ice-cream maker, who lectures them in rhyme on the manufacture and sale of ice cream in this industrial short from Kling films.

Kling was a producer of industrial films, like the better known Jam Handy; the best known of its productions was MR. B NATURAL, because Mystery Science Theater 3000 made fun of it. This one, the only directorial credit for Walt Clinton, is well produced, with some well-known voice artists, animators and musical talent behind it. If it seems obvious and not particularly funny, it's purpose was not to amuse a general audience, but to sell box-making equipment to ice-cream companies. There are enough grace notes, such as the rhyming dialogue and the signs on the background art, to make it clear that the people involved took their work seriously.
