Overview

In this frosty spoof of the tale of the gingerbread boy, a mother makes her thirsty boy an ice cube for his lemonade.
The ice cube escapes from the freezer and runs out the kitchen door. He has big plans—he wants to grow as big as an iceberg so he can bump into boats.
“Can’t catch me—I’m off to the sea,” the ice cube says to the boy, an ant, a mouse, a cat, a goose, a man, and a dog as he leads his pursuers on a merry chase to the sea. In the end, the ice cube finds that just desserts are not always sweet. And a thirsty boy discovers that mothers really do know best.
