Pablo lives in Antarctica like all the other penguins in the segment The Cold-Blooded Penguin, but as suggested by the title of the short, he is always cold and keeps close to his old stove called Smokey Joe in order to stay warm. He makes several attempts to get out of Antarctica and sail to warmer climates in the Galápagos Island in which several of his attempts were not successful. However, on his way to the warmer climates, he encounters a thick blanket of fog as he manages to get past the foggy coast. Pablo then discovers the Juan Fernandez Islands where he would stay warm, but he found out that the area was already occupied as Pablo sets sail to look for another warmer area.
Pablo manages to sail past Viña del Mar (which is shown on his map) and later past Chile's rocky coast. On his way, Pablo then sees the mountain of Quito, Ecuador and finally the equator. Unable to cross the equator, King Neptune manages to help him reach warmer climates. On his way to the Galápagos Island, Pablo notices his boat started melting as he utilizes a bathtub and his stove as a boat to reach the Galápagos Island. Pablo successfully makes it to the island and is satisfied that he finally enjoys the warmness in the Galápagos. When Pablo enjoys his new life in the Galápagos, he starts to think he might return to his icy home in the South Pole someday after spending time in the Galápagos.
