"Freeze Play, Part 1", known as "Duel on Ice - Anzu is Targeted" in the Japanese version, is the one hundred and second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! second series anime. It first aired in Japan on April 16, 2002 and in the United Sates on November 15, 2003.
Téa climbs up the destroyed bridge to the other side of the canyon and, exhausted, falls asleep. She is woken by a penguin. It leads her to a raft, which takes her to a beach filled with more penguins.
The penguins lead her to a building where Crump, in the form of "Nightmare Penguin", introduces himself and challenges her to a Duel.
When a player loses Life Points, ice forms around that player from the feet up.
As a penguin, Crump is immune to cold, so even though both players are subject to the freezing rule, Téa is the only one suffering as it happens.
Dark Magician Girl gives Téa advice and encouragement at key points in the Duel.
Crump tells Téa about his childhood and how he developed a love for numbers and penguins, who jointly care for their young, after his parents neglected him.
After entering a virtual door in the previous episode, Yugi finds himself in a dark maze with a series of doors. Behind the doors are monsters which he must destroy with his own cards to progress. During this, he can hear Téa's agonizing cries from being frozen.
The card that Tea destroys is replaced by "Mirror Wall" in the dub.
In the Japanese version, the penguin and Téa are shown going through a jungle and past a snake. This is removed in the dub.
In the Japanese version, Crump stated that his parents were often quarreling with each other and didn't care about him. In the dub, he states they never had time for him as they were always working late. As such, the shot of Crump as a child was altered to remove the silhouettes of his parents arguing.
