Although classified as a Mickey Mouse short, it's Pluto who steals the show
3 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I always enjoy Disney, and Mickey and Pluto are just two great characters. While not among Disney's very finest, The Moose Hunt still has many things that make a typical Disney short great. The story is good, fun and well paced and not as routine as some Disney shorts of the time have been. The animation is smooth and beautifully shaded, and I love the rounded design of Pluto, while the music is as characterful as ever. As ever there are some great gags, inventive for then and still work now, the final gag is worth of note but I also love when Mickey plays fetch with Pluto with the branch that looks like antlers and when Pluto plays dead. Mickey is likable as he always is, and he is still drawn with his grief over the "dead" Pluto making us genuinely feel for him. But it is Pluto who steals the show, I just love his innocence whether he is sniffing around the tree or when he's waiting to pounce. All in all, a great short though one for a Mickey cartoon where Pluto is the one who makes the bigger impression. 9/10 Bethany Cox
