==Plot== Mouse is reading a comic strip in a newspaper. She tells Snake that she would challenge her to some carnival games and Snake tells her to play the games by herself. Mouse wants to block suns, but Snake's Warmth-Generating Group Hugs are the worst. Mouse also wants to melt icecaps but Snake's Pool Party Planets are worse than a Warmth-Generating Group Hug. Mouse and Snake now have an army of Doom Dragons. The Doom Dragons blow a rainbow instead of fire, covering Snake and Mouse in rainbow paint. Rainbowified Mouse is saved by rainbowified Snake's tail. Her last line is "Turnips." at the end of the film.

Mouse: Well maybe, what if we block out the sun? Snake: Warmth-Generating Group Hug! Mouse: How about we melt our icecaps? Snake: Pool Party Planet!
Snake: First, a Warmth-Generating Group Hug (Mouse says "trademark." off-screen), then a Pool Party Planet (Mouse says "also trademark." off-screen), and now an army of Doom Dragons (Mouse says "yet another trademark mark markaroo." off-screen)! We're gonna die, Mouse! Mouse: Turnips.
- This was the first piece of Fish Hooks media.
- This is the first film of Fish Hooks.
- The ending image pretty much mirrors the promotional image except for the Smiling Mouse in the background.
Snake's tail turns purple when she says "We're gonna die, Mouse". Mouse's ears turn green when she says "But we still have lots of canned goods."
- "Beauty and the Beast" - The Warmth-Generating Group Hug references Belle and Beast's hug in the first film.
- "Max and Ruby" - Snake says "Pool party planet", which references it being one of the things that Max says that in the 3 episodes "Blocked Sun; Melted Icecaps; Destroyed Crops".
- "Distant Drums" - The Wilhelm scream is squealed by a hamster who gets knocked over by Snake.
- "Secret of Mana" - Mouse says about the brown-spotted stream geckos "Those must be cousins of a species called, er.... a Mushboom?", which are enemies in the game.
- "Game Grumps" - Snake mumbles after saying "WHAT NOW?!?!?!", which is a reference to "NEXT TIME ON GAME GRUMPS!".
- This film premiered on TV on Noggin on September 7, 1999.
- The pose of Snake and Mouse standing triumphantly while Snake holds up her banjo is the same pose as one of the posters for the film.
- The film was found by Universal, who now owned Mercury Filmworks (except for their Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network productions, which were owned by Warner Bros. and Viacom, Snake and Mouse were now owned by Jam Filled Entertainment, which was also now owned by Universal) and got put on the DVD for Super Mario Bros.
