I'm so happy.

I love spring in the ice age.

Oh, the colors,

the changing of seasons!

Yeah, I hardly

recognize the place.

Of course, spring doesn't really

start until the eggs hatch. And...

And you can't start Easter

without our Easter feast.

That's right, with the

family all together.

Which sounds amazing! But I

made plans with my friends.

Someday you're gonna have

a family of your own...

And then you'll know

the importance of

getting everyone

together on the holidays.

I don't even know

if I want that.

Manny, come out here! Your

daughter is talking nonsense!


I'm in my Manny cave watching

the hawks-bears game.

I'll help when I get back.



Come on, hawks!

This is it,

folks, it's sudden death.

Guys, every time?

They're in

formation and here they go!

Bears rule!


Hawks on the attack!


comes fuzzy wuzzy. He...

- Ooh!

- Holy mastodon!

That was sudden!

Game over. Hawks lose.

Why don't you guys go help your

sister with the Easter feast?

Easter, Sschmeaster,

chicken Keister!

Possums are launching

our own holiday.

April possum day!

A celebration of all

things prank and possum.

If it's about you guys, why

not call it April fools'?

Ouch! I like it.

Now, who will be the first fool?

Peaches! Yeah, that's

what I was thinking.

Manny! I could use

another trunk up here!

Let's go watch the falcons-hornets

game at your den.

Yeah, but Shira's sleeping. She went

out all night hunting with the girls.

The cougars?

Fine, we'll watch at Sid's.

Bring the nose plugs.

Wow, guys, I'm touched you want

to watch the game with me, but...

I can't because, you see,

it's my grand opening!

Nothing about you is grand, Sid.

Well, if you recall, I once ran

a kid's camp, El campo Del Sid.


And then I nurtured three

beautiful dinosaur eggs.


And then I thought, who has time

to sit on their egg all day?

Me! So, I'm opening

a pre-hatched pre-school.

Egg sitting.

I sit on your egg.

Future disaster.

Wow. And not one

single parent

has entrusted

their egg to you yet.

No, can you believe that?

And I asked everyone, too.

- Asher, stop sniffing him.

- It's embarrassing!

Except her!

Please, give me strength.

Ahhh! Don't eat that,

it's already digested.

Uh, excuse me, ma'am?


I can't help noticing that you

just migrated... Savannah!

So you know nothing about me.

Savan... mmm-mmm.

- Rachel!

- It wasn't me!

The skinny one! Spit your brother out!

Right now!

What on earth are you saying?

I know it's hard to manage, what,

with today's two-hunter families.

Only one hunter here.

My mate flew the Coop.

That's great!


I mean, I mean,

I feel your pain.

So, um, let me ask you...

Who'll watch your egg

while you scavenge

to feed your young

mouth to mouths?

I'm basically your only option.

And really, think about it.

What could possibly go wrong?

Yo, I been stuck down here for

three months hangin' out.

I got my sea legs back.

Time to set sail!

Come on,

you just got home! Stay!

We got it made here.

We sleep all day,

we game all night.

Mom, like, she picks up

all our droppings, dude.

Can one of you

take out the trash?

Mom! In a minute!

I'm busy!

I love that woman.

Clint! This hole is

your whole universe.

And that's cool. You're a late bloomer.


I am a pirate.

I don't judge.

But there's a whole world out

there to pillage and plunder.

You can sit here

with your late bloomin',

I'mma get to

pillage and plunderin'.

Okay... well...

Every time you scheme something,

you end up back here,

at rock bottom.

Yeah, but this time's

gonna be different.

I'm gonna bounce.

Here we go! What?

It's them!

Watch out!

They sank my ship!

All because I tried to kidnap

and, well, maybe dump 'em at sea.

Anti-pirate jerks.

Payback time.

If you're going out,

take your brother!

Mom! I'm not taking him!

Of course I have space

for little Jessica!

My motto is...

"Long as you've got an egg,

I've got a place to sit."


Who referred you?

Ethel did.

She said you had the most

trustworthy eye she's ever seen.

You see, my little egg is

my whole life, my miracle.

Well, yeah!

I should say so.

So, how did you, um...

I adopted.


Sid's got a dozen

eggs in his care.

This is not gonna go over easy.

It's like the future of the

ecosystem is in Sid's hands.

Worse. It's under Sid's butt.


Hey! You hose-faced, trunk-toothed beast!

Remember me?

Peter cottontail?

That is insulting to my species!

I'm here for the new

ship you owe me!

What are you talking about?

Oh, let me refresh your memory.

Last time we met, you beat,

outsmarted, and humiliated me.

So the way I see it,

you owe me a new ship.

Beat it, bunny.

I don't owe you bupkis.


What is he doing?

I think...

He's attacking you?


Exfoliating, maybe.

Y'all haven't heard the last of me!

I'll be back for my new ship!

Nap time!

Oh, my gosh, you're so cute!

Sleep, sleep.

You want back tickles?

Oh, you have a big day tomorrow!

Now, how are you gonna come outta

your shell if you don't rest?

Oh, I know!

I know, I know.

I'll tell you the story my mom

used to tell me all the time.

It puts me right to sleep.

Okay. "Humpty dumpty

sat on a wall..."

And the lucky bunny

stole them all.

Oh, you're poached!

"And all the king's horses

and all the king's..."

Oh, I like your sunny side.
