- "There must have been some magic in that new cosmic ray that Prof. Frink invented, because once he points it at Bart's snowman the juvenile jokester has a brand-new friend named Snowmer!"
Bart wakes up Homer because he is late for work and Mr. Burns will fire him if he is not at work in ten minutes. When he leaves the garage with his car, he misses the snow ramp that Milhouse has built, and he drives up to the ramp and crashes into the neighbors' tree. As punishment, Bart is not allowed to go with the family to the Hot Chocolate Festival, and Ned Flanders will make sure that he does not leave the garden. Bart is outside building a snowman, and starts throwing snowballs at it. Professor Frink passes by just as a snowball hits him and he drops his hydro-animator, which sends a ray towards the snowman, bringing it to life. Frink is happy because this proves that his machine works, and Bart starts playing with the snowman and calls him Snowmer. Homer comes home with the rest of the family and becomes jealous of Bart and Snowmer. He tries to play with them but Bart does not allow it. Homer contacts Frink and he brings a snowman to life, which Homer made to look like Bart. He calls the snowman Snowmer Junior. Homer doesn't do well with Snowmer Jr. and happen to break off his head, which rolls down the street and Plow King runs over him.
Homer borrows the ray again and builds a new Snowmer Jr. who is better friends with Homer than the last one. Homer tries to tease Bart, but he does not care because Snowmer is amazing. Homer and Bart begin to fight over who is the best snowman, Snowmer or Junior. It ends with a snowball fight against Snowmer and Junior, who are tired of being treated as trained snow monkeys. Homer and Bart make peace and decide that they need to get away from Snowmer and Junior, so they make them come in the house for ice cream. When they step inside, they begin to melt. Homer and Bart put them in jars because they feel sorry for them, and they start to watch TV together on the couch.
