Story Summary

Mistah Fox gets his comeuppance for all the tricks he's played on Molly Cottontail when he agrees to dig hot potatoes out of the ashes for Miz Cottontails children just to get in out of the cold. He digs and digs until his paws are so singed that he would rather be back outside with Jack Frost.
