When Roy and Bonnie announce the guest of honor, Fred and Barney are at home watching the event on TV when Fred suddenly realizes he was under the misunderstanding that it was scheduled for the following night. As Fred and Barney rush off to the ice arena, the show continues with musical numbers, ice displays including a comedy team, precision skating, disco-on-ice, jazz skating and an acrobatic number with fiery torches. When a costumed Fred finally arrives, the guests perform a "Happy Birthday" salute.
Musical numbers include: "You Are My Lucky Star" (Bonnie Franklin), "We're in the Money" (Ice Capettes), "Disco Showdown" (The Sylvers) and a guitar solo "Theme from Love Story" (Roy Clark). (52 min)
