[Ben] It's winter in Motown,
which means I get to stay indoors
and do cool stuff, like drawing.
But my friend Angie's more of
an outdoor action girl, you know?
Where are you taking us, Ange?
Hockey tryouts.
I love hockey, and the Jives
are the best team in Motown,
so we gotta play for them.
Uh, did you say "we"?
Me and Ben don't even play!
[Coach Payne] New recruits!
I need you in your gear now,
if not sooner, like, on the double!
[blows whistle]
Recruits, attention! Gimme ten laps, fast!
-[chuckles] Whoa!
[blows whistle]
Next, puck control.
Oh! Whoa! Whoa!
Next! Shooting goal! Hut-hut-hut!
[blows whistle]
Okay, recruits.
This year's team will be
Um, Pablo.
And Stephanie as captain!
The rest of you may return
to civilian life.
[all] Yeah!
I got my own team
and we could beat you easy.
Oh, yeah? What team?
[both] Huh?
Seriously? Okay, then, how about your team
play the Jives tomorrow?
No, no, Ange. Don't do it!
Sure, and we're totally gonna win.
[grunts] So you kids want ice?
Well, you got it!
Whoa! Oh! Oh! There she blows!
I'm ready to play too, Benji.
Sorry, Ella, you're too little.
I am not! I go to big school now. [grunts]
-[Mickey] Woo-hoo!
[Angie] Listen up.
I know we got a lot of work to do,
but we can beat them.
[Mickey] I'm like lightning. Whoa!
Yeah, over in a flash.
So, what are we gonna call our team?
How about, hmm, the Magicians?
'Cause we'll need magic to win.
I like it.
Okay, Magicians, let's get training!
Eighteen, nineteen, twenty!
Keep it goin', guys!
[Ben grunts]
You gotta block them, Benny!
You gotta use your brakes, Mickey!
So when are we gonna start having fun?
That comes later, after we win.
[both] Ooh!
Is it me, or is practice making us worse?
I'm thinking we need extra help.
Yeah! Great idea, Benny.
ABC, easy as one, two, three.
Benny! Mickey!
Hey, Dancing Machine!
How'd you like to play
a cool skating game with us?
Sounds funkadelic! [chuckles]

[Ben] Whoa!
Can I play too? Please?
Sorry, Ella. We got a full team.
But you could use a reserve, yeah?
-I'm on the team. I'm on the team!
Hey, Dancin',
can you play with us tomorrow?
I know we can win with you on the team.
But Ange, that'll make four of us.
Uh, yeah, I guess it will.
So, who's gonna sit out?
[indistinct chatter]
[crowd cheering]
It's fun being a reverse, huh?
[laughing] Their team is so pathetic.
Hey, Magicians. Where's your third?
-[Brad gasps]
-Oh, my goodness, who is that?
He's my, uh, cousin.
Yeah, Dancin', uh Dan!
[blows whistle]
Okay, teams! I want a good, clean game.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to
the Magicians versus the Jives.
The Jives are Motown's finest,
so they're gonna be hard to beat.
The Magicians gotta win.
Our grandbabies are on that team!
Let's go!
I can't believe my eyes!
The Magicians can't get through
the Jives' defense.
[panting] Hey, Benjamin.
What's our math homework for tomorrow?
Um, you just gotta do the exercises--
Ben, look out!
Oh! Huh?
-[air horn blows]
-And that's halftime, folks.
With the Jives in the lead.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, how much time I got?
I gotta re-ice the rink.
Stand back, everyone. The iceman cometh!
Whoa! Oh! Oh! Sorry, folks, I
-[kids] Oh!
-[Dancing Machine] Whoa!
Sorry, guys.
I gotta turn on the defroster!
Looks like you're in, Mickey.
Uh, you sure?
Now we'll never win.
[blows whistle]
[laughs maniacally]
[Marvin chuckles] That's a goal
for the Jives!
[Ruby] Mmm-hmm.
And that's another in no time flat.
Oh! The Jives are making it
look too easy, Ruby.
It's five-nil to the Jives. Looks like
the Magicians are all out of tricks.
It's over! They're five points up
and there's hardly any time left.
Come on, Ange.
There's gotta be something we can do.
There is. Y'all can have fun for a change.
Oh, know what? He's right.
If we're gonna go down, we may as well
go down havin' fun on the way.
Come on, Magicians!
Is it my turn to play yet?
Sure. Uh, you couldn't do any worse.
[blows whistle]
When your problems get you down ♪
Erase away your frown
Oh, yeah ♪
Let your body glide
Put on your wheels and ride ♪

Our little girl has always been
a surprise package.

-All right!

Well, it's been an incredible, no,
a magical comeback for the Magicians.
But with scores level, and just seconds
on the clock, it may be too late.
Try pulling something
out of your hats now, Magicians.
Yeah, hey!
Skate to the rhythm ♪
-Skate to the rhythm ♪

Shoot, Benny, shoot!
[buzzer rings]
Yes! And the Magicians win. [laughs]
I don't get it, Ange.
Why did you pass it to me?
'Cause we're a team, and that means
all of us get to play, and win.
Hey! That was quite a game, soldier.
Well, a general never likes
to admit a mistake, but, uh,
how would you like to be, uh,
well, captain of the Jives?
Oh, thanks. But I've already got a team.
A great team.
Well, I can't argue with that.
