A great Donald/Pluto short, with Pluto stealing the show
I have always loved Disney shorts, and I have always loved Donald for his hilarious temperament and Pluto for his cuteness and energy. Donald and Pluto is great, the two's chemistry is rather limited here together, but both of them are great fun. Donald is not quite at his best, where he finds himself easily frustrated, but the parts where he walks on the ceiling and ends up in the washing machines are very funny. Pluto though is the one who steals the show, just by doing what he is famous for. He is cute, he is energetic but he is also fun and all within his actions. The animators do a great job in not just his animation but putting personality in it as well. The animation is wonderful, the backgrounds are sumptuously coloured and the house and furnishing make you wish you lived in it. The music is both beautiful and characterful, and the gags mostly focusing on Pluto and the magnet are inventive and make their mark. The story may feel a little routine in places like the Pluto causing chaos ending(still funny though), but the crisp energy and gags make it interesting as well. Clarence Nash's voice work as Donald is impeccable as always. Overall, a great short, beautifully animated and a lot of fun. Donald has his moments and is a delight but it is Pluto who steals it. 9/10 Bethany Cox
