It also serves as deleted scenes for the movie, being a mixture of all of Scrat's scenes from the movie while also having scenes that were not included in the movie. 

Synopsis

In the main events of Ice Age: Collision Course, Scrat is captured by Scratazons who take away his acorn. Now, Scrat must rescue his Acorn and escape before the aliens can catch him.

Plot

The mini film opens up, as usual, in the events of Ice Age: Collision Course, with Scrat (Chris Wedge) trying to find some place to store his acorn. Before he can stick it in the ice, he falls through some ice and into what first seems to be a cave. Scrat puts the acorn on a pad that turns on a giant flying saucer. He bursts it out of the ice block it was trapped in and out into space. After hitting the planets like pinball or pool balls, Scrat ends up shot out of the saucer with the acorn. He decides to stick it into an asteroid, naturally causing it to split and send it hurtling toward Earth.

As Scrat made it back to the UFO, with his acorn, he sadly watch the view of the Earth, when he suddenly triggered a button causing the UFO to fly away from Earth. Scrat accidentally used a switch causing gravity to make it difficult to reach his acorn.

Scrat chased his acorn into a Teleportation room where he freaks out on his acorn mutated as a head, then losing his head, dancing, and being teleported several times. As it stopped Scrat carefully grabbed his acorn, and tried to destroy the teleporters, until one of them teleported him into the Bathroom of the UFO, where he threw his acorn in the toilet. The toilet ends up flushing the acorn, and releases it outside the UFO. Scrat watches his acorn float in space, screaming in frustration.

Scrat tries to catch his acorn in space, by tractor beaming it. He ends up targeting it, and attracts it to his ship. Apparently, Scrat was also attracting the moon to himself. To avoid this upcoming collision, Scrat swings the attraction end ends up letting go of the moon, causing it to rotate around the around the earth really fast, bringing up the tides. This unexpected action, actually helps The Herd pass under a river that was blocking them from travelling to their destination from saving the world.

Back up in space, Scrat tries to catch his acorn, but ends up missing, attracting an electrical storm that was caused after he made Jupiter received it's red spot. He ends up throwing the electrical storm back to Earth, creating an obstacle for the herd.

Scrat appears again with his acorn, but his snout gets slammed by a door. When he tries to get his acorn, he ends up getting beaten by the door several times, until he quickly runs through. Scrat grabs his acorn and blows a raspberry at the door, until it opens vertically, smacking him. This causes the acorn to bounce into a room where there are several doors that stands between the acorn and Scrat. Scrat, looking shocked, slowly gets up and groans, walking towards the next door. Scrat's yells are then heard as the UFO flies through space.

Meanwhile, Scrat is preparing to head back to earth, activating the ship. The ship stops when he discovers an gigantic alien ship like an giant acorn. The mother ship cuts the UFO, then grab the acorn but also with Scrat, and it makes the ship crash into the mother of all asteroids.

Scrat and his acorn drop into the suspension area and soon Scratazon (Karen Disher) and her guards walks into the room where the acorn is where they chat excitedly about their catch. Scratazon walks up to the acorn only to pick it up and turn it to find Scrat hiding which surprises both of them as the alien leader drops both Scrat and the acorn. She soon orders her guards to blast Scrat who then quickly dodges the laser blasts until of them sent him flying into a saucer.

He sees the Scratazon leader leaving with his acorn in triumph until he fires a tractor beam at the alien leader prying the acorn from her hands. As Scrat nearly reclaims his acorn, another tractor beam pulls the acorn in another direction and it is Scratazon trying the claim the acorn again. Both rodents engage in a short tug-o-war with the acorn until the nutrogen inside the latter snaps creating a massive explosion which destroys the ship and soon creates a black hole sucking everything nearby into it.

Scrat sees his acorn being sucked into the black hole and climbs through the ship regaining his space attire as the latter exits the saucer to retrieve his acorn while jumping on multiple debris. Suddenly, Scratazon zips by Scrat with her jetpack and gave him a wink before getting the acorn herself. Scrat manages to catches up to her by using the toilet to propel himself up next to the alien and knocks her into the black hole he finally reclaims his acorn only to embrace it.

While distracted, the black hole's gravitational pull yanks Scrat who desperately tries to escape but only to have his suit stripped off of him leaving him in his boxer which then came off and eventually sucks the unfortunate rodent in.

The narrator (Neil deGrasse Tyson) talks about the black hole as the latter closes completely until Scrat came back fully clothed in his spacesuit with his acorn. Scrat dances in triumph as he finally got back but his victory is short-lived until the black hole (in a smaller form) snatches the acorn into it leaving Scrat unable to get it back. After losing the acorn again, the rodent screams in frustration as he floats in space, ending the short.
