Storyline

Mickey and Pluto are going duck hunting. They clown around a bit. Then they march off, with Pluto's fleas following in formation, which lures a few ducks to follow. As soon as Mickey turns around and sees the ducks, they fly off. He heads for his blind, out-fitting Pluto with a decoy on his head. The ducks buy it, but Mickey has trouble with his shotgun, ultimately shooting a hole in the bottom of his boat and having the gun disintegrate. The ducks see this, and unmask Pluto. Sensing vulnerability, they recruit more ducks, and fly off with Pluto and Mickey. Mickey drags on windmills and rooftops, and finally both of them drop into long underwear hanging on a line (with Pluto's fleas using little parachutes). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Predictable perhaps but fun and beautifully animated
30 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story is on the predictable side here, and while a lot of the gags are funny, especially with the fleas either marching behind Pluto or parachuting off him or Pluto managing to fool the other ducks, there is not much new either. However, the animation is really beautifully done and the scenes with Mickey and Pluto's reflections in the water and Pluto in the water and you see his shadow shows a good level of sophistication. The music is full of character and does much to enhance the action as it always did do with the Disney(and Looney Tunes as well for that matter) cartoons. Mickey is still as likable as ever, and Pluto, helped by some fine work with his expressions, is typically cute and energetic.

In conclusion, recommended but not one of my favourites ever. 8/10 Bethany Cox
