Pluto and a hall of mirrors
25 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The plot is not much and not only is it one that to some extent has been seen before but it starts off a little on the slow side. When Bone Trouble gets to the carnival it is here where it comes to life. The gags, physical and visual-based, work really well. The hall of mirrors sequence is the highlight, and is an extremely clever scene in terms of humour and animation. The reflections he makes and what we see are deliciously bizarre and enough to put anybody into hysterics, possibly one of the most inventive scenes of any Pluto short. Pluto even outsmarts the bulldog who counterpoints him in Bone Trouble, and it's among the craftiest he's been. Pluto is very appealing, he's cute and has a lot of energy, and the bulldog is a good counterpoint for him. The animation is very nicely drawn(if a little more refined later on) and the colours are lovely on the eyes. And the music is lush and characterful, managing also to enhance the action. Overall, very good short and while a little dull to begin with it is among Pluto's better early shorts, mainly because of how good the hall of mirrors sequence is. 8/10 Bethany Cox
