Snowboy is busy defending the polar bears when Greenbackboy comes along and drags him off to play a game called Ka-ching! By cutting down all the trees and catching all the fish, Greenbackboy is determined to get rich. Snowboy realizes that he needs to save nature rather than destroy it and hides one little tree under his Cloak of Many Uses and sneaks two fish back into the sea. Then he tells Greenbackboy that he has to leave. He goes back to find his tree and a little beehive with honey. Eventually Greenbackboy comes straggling in asking for food. Snowboy shares his honey with him, but reminds him to leave some for tomorrow.
