Ice Age is an American franchise created by Blue Sky Studios, starting with its first film in 2002. It follows a group of mammals living in the ice age in prehistoric times. Originally just Sid the sloth, Manny the mammoth, and Diego the saber-toothed cat, later films add more characters to their "herd". There is also Scrat the saber-toothed squirrel, who has his own misadventures relating to his acorn.

Ice Age: The Meltdown (also known as Ice Age 2: The Meltdown) is a 2006 to the first film Ice Age, directed by Carlos Saldanha and produced by Blue Sky Studios.

It follows the three main characters from the first film as they learn that their valley will be flooded by a massive dam when the ice melts. On the way to a safer place, they come across a female mammoth named Ellie raised by two possums named Crash and Eddie, who could be a chance for Manny to start a family.

During Scrat's first scene he runs out of limbs to stop the leaks so he uses his mouth, causing him to inflate and fly around before dropping thousands of feet.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (also known as Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs) is a 2009 computer animated film, and the third movie in the Ice Age series. It was produced by Blue Sky Studios and directed by Carlos Saldanha.

As Manny and Ellie prepare for their coming baby, Sid decides to adopt three eggs he finds, which hatch into baby Tyrannosaurus. The babies' mother appears and takes them and Sid away, so the rest of the pack travel to a hidden world populated by dinosaurs to save him. Along the way, they meet the crazy weasel Buck, who seeks revenge against a dinosaur called Rudy.

The baby Tyrannosaurus eat a large chunk of meat their mother brought.

Crash, Eddie, and Buck go to rescue Sid from a river of lava, but they are chased by a flock of Pterodactylus. Crash and Eddie use berries to shoot down the attacking pterosaurs, one of which gets it in the mouth.

Ice Age comics were released in a Polish magazine "Epoka Lodowcowa - kolekcja zwierząt" which was containing various animal facts about extinct and living animals. The issues were loosely based on the Ice Age franchise and were discontinued for unknown reasons.
