Not one of my favourites but very cute all the same. Maybe the musical number goes on longer than it needed to, and as sweet as Fifi is- she reminds me somewhat of Lady from Lady and the Tramp- she is little more in my eyes than just a plot device. However, it does look great, the black and white looks nice and crisp, and the beginning has a lovely amorous feel to it. All the characters are well drawn, even if more refined later on. The music is energetic and bouncy, with some lush pathos as well. The songs are really catchy as well. The story could have been just a routine and potentially too simplistic Mickey and Minnie chemistry story, but actually there is some romantic conflict centring around a misunderstanding. I liked how Puppy Love set up the short with its love themes, with the birds cooing, the squirrels snuggling up and the fountain of Cupid. Puppy Love has a lot of gags, some are subtle like Mickey leaving with Minnie's hat, some are cute like the antenna balls and some are funny like Pluto replacing the chocolates with the bone and when Mickey slams the gate. Minnie's outburst "I hate him. I hate all men" is hysterical, though I can sense that somebody will come along and say that it is sexist. Mickey and Minnie are still likable characters and seem to have genuine affection for one another, and Pluto is amusing too. Overall, a cute and funny short. 8/10 Bethany Cox
