The arrival of spring is placed in jeopardy when winter refuses to relinquish its grasp of the season.
At the forest covered with snow, Old Man Winter Pete stomps snow from a snow cloud on everything in the land, including a scared family of quails. As he goes off to spread more snow, Mickey jumps out and plays the panflute and the sun rises up. The ladybugs saw him play, he hops on a snow grass, playing the flute to the tree, which wakes it up. He played it while the flowers grew, the bunnies watched him following with butterflies. They go to see a tiny golden flower with a deer, squirrels, quails, and raccoons around it. Mickey plays the flute to the flower, which grew bigger and more golden. Pete was enjoying a squirrel ice pop when he saw Mickey played the flute. Pete confronts the mouse and gives him a very long and literally icy stare, which turns into the water by Mickey's flute. He dances and plays a song to Pete, who wears a spring costume of plants and vegetables, using Mickey's flute. Pete is mad and the plants decay. He stomps the ground and makes frost spirals that attempt to freeze the flower, Mickey blocks them with his left hand which freezes, but he breaks the ice and fights Pete. They jumped out and land on iced water and skate. Pete shoots Mickey with snow bullets from his peg, then gets chased by butterflies summoned by Mickey. Mickey plays to some eggs that hatch into baby birds, but Pete makes them into snow Peeps. Mickey plays to an old willow tree, which grows a long leafy hairdo, but Pete shoots it, giving it an older snowy beard. The two eventually run and bonk heads. Mickey lost his panflute but Pete has it. He plays the flute to trap Mickey inside an ice cage. He then uses it to blows at a groundhog, which hides in its burrow before taking its shadow with it seconds after, and Humphrey, who fails to jump into his cave and got covered in ice. Mickey tries to break free of the cage with the animals' help, but Pete already has his sights on the golden flower in hope of freezing it. Mickey was so mad that it starts to melt the ice cage, giving him the idea of using that to melt the cage completely. He rushes over to stop Pete, who almost succeeded at freezing the golden flower in ice. They scuffle until Pete gets knocked off the cliff. Despite being the victor, Mickey was exhausted from the fight, but plays to the flower with whatever little strength he has left. The sun shines on the golden flower, which restored it and caused it to grow even larger until it blooms, revealing Goddess Minnie. Mickey helps her onto the ground, and she restore the forest with flowers and trees, Pete recovers from his fall, but panics at the grass and flowers approaching and surrounding him. With the animals and trees happily celebrating, Mickey and Minnie dancing on the now peacefully sleeping Pete's tummy.
