It’s snowing in Townopolis, and Gluko and Lennon are excited to help out the mayor by shoveling it away. After Cricket gives them an 'atta boy!' for shoveling his pathway, they begin getting greedy for atta boys. They agree to shovel everyone’s walkways in return for atta boys.\n\nIt’s harder than they expected, and they end up getting frozen in ice mid-shovel. They emerge in a snow-covered future where everyone wears high-waisted trousers. Everybody they encounter says things are going great, but Gluko and Lennon wonder how that’s possible if they weren’t there to help and get the atta boys.\n\nThe boys do some more digging to see what they’re missing, and they learn that everyone hates their high-waisted trousers, who reign over the town with fear. Gluko and Lennon devise a plan to turn back time, go back to the moment where they fell asleep in the snow and finish shoveling, so that the trousers never take power.
