"The Ice Cream Promise" is the eleventh episode of Anne of Green Gables: The Animated Series.


When Anne agrees to help Marilla make ice cream, she has no idea what she has gotten herself into. A small promise becomes a sizable commitment. She soon realizes that she is missing out on other activities she would rather do. Even Marilla feels she has bitten off more than she can chew. Still, neither knows how to broach the topic with the other.

Behind the scenesEdit


  • The Avonlea Book Club is planning to discuss A Midsummer Night's Dream, a comedy written by famous English playwright William Shakespeare in 1595/96. Mrs. Lynde's parlor is decorated to resemble the forest to fit the theme of the play. Gilbert is to perform a part from the book and he chooses the role as Nick Bottom, the character who turns into a donkey. Mrs. Lynde then asks him to wear a costume for the occassion.
  • Anne offers to perform too and searches for the right part in Complete Works of Shakespeare, a volume containing all the plays and poems of William Shakespeare.
  • Peg Bowen likes the witches scene from Macbeth, a tragedy by Shakespeare thought to have been first performed in 1606. In the end, Anne chooses that very scene to perform at the meeting.
  • Rachel Lynde mentions they would read a book by an English novelist Charles Dickens for the following month. She wants Anne and Gilbert to perform a part from A Christmas Carol, Dickens' famous novella published in 1843.


This episode was released as part of the DVD box set Volumes 7-9, along with "Taffy!", "Lost and Found", "Idle Chatter", "A Better Mousetrap" and "A Walk in His Shoes".
