Young Thor is spending a few days with his grandparents on Lake Winnipeg in Canada.  Thor loves television and spends most of his time sitting in front of the set watching cartoons.  When his grandfather's helper gets sick, Thor is pressed into service as grandfather's helper.  Grandfather is a fisherman and it is the middle of winter.  That means Thor must go out in the cold onto the frozen lake to help find fish.  He would much rather be in the warm house watching his cartoons.  Join Thor as he learns the old ways for catching fish under the ice.  Also, find out what happens when they come across a snowmobiler who has crashed through the ice and is in danger.
