George and the Man with the Yellow Hat are having a blast on their research assignment in the Antarctic! Professor Wiseman has enlisted the pair to help find the nesting grounds of the Chinstrap penguins. Equipped with a video camera, two-way headsets, and a photo of the penguins, our two explorers set out in different directions. George meets a Chinstrap penguin, only to lose his camera to a pesky sea otter who swims away. The Man finds George, and they chase the sea otter by jumping ice floes...and discover too late that a blizzard is approaching! George and the Man find refuge in a cave. When the blizzard passes, they emerge on the other side of the island in the middle of the Chinstrap penguins' nesting ground! Mission accomplished!
