Zootopia Wiki

Daddy! What did we say? No icing anyone at my wedding!
―Fru Fru to Mr. Big

Icing is a punishment issued by Mr. Big in Zootopia. It is done by dunking the icees into freezing Arctic water via a trap door under the floor of his home. It is implied to be a method of execution.

Role in the Film

Near the middle of the film, Kevin and Raymond take Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde to Mr. Big's home after they are found inside a limo belonging to the shrew. Mr. Big threatens to ice them, Judy on account of an accusation of involvement with Mr. Otterton's disappearance and Nick on account of some past negative encounters, but his daughter, Fru Fru, enters just in time. After scolding Mr. Big, Fru Fru recognizes Judy as the bunny who saved her from a giant donut the day before.

Out of gratitude, Mr. Big spares Judy and Nick and invites them to Fru Fru's wedding and gives them information.

Near the end of the film, Judy and Nick attempt to interrogate Duke Weaselton about the Night howlers, but Duke refuses to speak, so they take him to Mr. Big. The shrew threatens to ice Duke, compelling the weasel to give Judy and Nick the information they need.


  • Mr. Big's voice actor, Maurice LaMarche, does not believe that Mr. Big kills animals when he "ices" them, and instead "just dunks them until they're really sorry".[1]
