A polka-playing band of ten polar bears gathers on an iceberg that's big enough to serve as a stage. The music strikes up, when suddenly-SNAP-a chunk of the iceberg breaks off, and one of the bears floats away. Then-BOINK-must be warming up because another piece of the ice and another musician just crashed off the side. Can you imagine a polka band without the tuba? Counting backwards, the band is eventually reduced to√Čnone. But fear not, the bears push their pieces of the iceberg back together, and the show goes on!
