See, there's a prophesy about a flying warrior who will save the village from its orca master. The problem is, except for his flying abilities, Bird has no special abilities. Squirrel has the smarts to know the prophesy can't work the way they've been told. The chief's daughter, meanwhile, has the hunting prowess and bravery to actually fight the orca.
Bird & Squirrel on Ice is about heroism and prophesies and making them work with something better than blind faith. The action is as fast paced as the original, but with a more character and plot oriented story. The first one was a long string of gags, during which the two become friends. This time, the friendship well established, they can work together to do bigger and better things.
