Storyline

A hen has taken up residence in Pluto's doghouse and laid her eggs. She steps out; Pluto comes home and the eggs all hatch, and the chicks take Pluto for mommy and won't let go. Then a grasshopper comes along, and all the chicks chase after it. Pluto tries to sneak off, but the chick that swallowed the hopper comes hopping along and bumps into Pluto. He feels sorry for it and is soon overrun by chicks again. He helps them scratch up a worm. The hen returns and argues with Pluto over the babies. She brings the rooster into the argument. While they fight, the babies run to the doghouse. Pluto wins and settles in, sad to see the chicks go without realizing they're hiding in the straw all around him. When they emerge, he's happy.

There is one joke in this short that cracks me up so much...
25 December 2001 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Pluto stumbles into a henhouse when chicks are being born, and they think that he is their mother. The joke I refer to is when one of the chicks eats a grasshopper as big as he is, and bounces around when the grasshopper refuses to stop. This is a very funny cartoon to be found on the new Silly Symphonies DVD collection.
