Interesting but never anything hilarious
29 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always been a great Disney fan. Donald's Dog Laundry however is not one of their finest hours, decent and watchable of course but not outstanding. The story is rather routine and unfolds at a less crisp pace than I usually see and Pluto's actions are energetic and cute enough but whether they're funny has mixed results here, the best of the gags being Donald being attacked by the dog washing contraception and Pluto's struggle with the rubber bone. On the other hand, it is very inventive and colourful visually, always looking well-drawn and fluid, while the lovely music and sound effects give plenty of character and fit well instead of feeling out of place. The two characters do work well together, Pluto has a lion's share of the action and while more interesting and amusing than hilarious he is still endearing. Donald is at his best either when he is easily frustrated or/and on the receiving end of misfortune, and what does make him fun here is that the cartoon does wonders with the misfortune side of his character, here he gets it big time and while fun to watch you do feel sympathy for him. Overall, not a favourite but definitely watchable for the characters, a couple of gags and the technical values. 7/10 Bethany Cox
