Plot

Jerry and Nibbles flood the kitchen and freeze the water, turning the room into a skating rink. The two mice go about their own business, skating and sliding across the frozen floor - until Tom is woken up and peeps through the wall. While Nibbles slips through the ice, he accidentally pulls off half of Tom's whiskers. Nibbles attempts a fix, but the whiskers fall off and Nibbles brushes them under the mat. Tom pursues the two mice, but is not as mobile on ice as he thought. However, as he skids across the "rink", he crashes into a closet and comes across a pair of ice skates. The chase resumes as Tom stumbles across many kitchen obstacles, including an ironing board, a door and some stools, before sliding up a table-come-ramp and falling down into the cellar.

Tom emerges from the cellar and just as he is about to catch Jerry, Nibbles defrosts the ice, causing Tom to slip over on the watery floor. Jerry climbs to higher ground as the soaking wet cat searches for him. Ready to squirt Jerry, who Tom has spotted hiding on a shelf, Nibbles sets the freezer to 'Quick Freeze', re-freezing the floor, with Tom frozen and just standing on the floor. Jerry and Nibbles resume their ice dancing, skating around the frozen cat who can do nothing but move his eyes around as the mice skate across the floor.
