Mama Bear (Mamá Osa) and Baby Bear (Bebé Oso) board Miss Train (Señorita Tren) for a ride back home, but their journey is cut short by three masked bandits-actually the Girl (Niña), Little Rat (Ratoncito) and the Sock (Mosca)-who are out for ice cream. The bandits have a difficult time obtaining the ice cream, but finally manage to uncover it on their third attempt. Salsa tells the Sheriff, played by Papa Bear (Papá Oso), who then challenges Little Rat to an ice-cream-eating duel. When Little Rat gives up, the Sheriff wins.
