Storyline

Mickey Mouse is about to build Pluto a doghouse when Pluto digs up a magic lamp that speaks in black dialect. It offers to do Mickey's bidding. Mickey's first wish is for a doghouse, and the lamp starts to work. Suddenly, the saw, the planer, the paintbrush and other tools magically begin working on their own. Finally, Pluto has a magnificent doghouse. The second wish? Mickey asks the lamp to give Pluto a bath. But things go awry when Pluto accidentally breaks Mickey's radio. Now, all sorts of conflicting messages are coming out of the speaker as Mickey tries to fix it. The lamp assumes all the voices are Mickey's and obeys them. Pluto is rolled with a rolling pin, punched with boxing gloves, frozen in an aspic and is about to be cut into thin slices before all ends happily. Written by J. Spurlin

Pluto's Dream House
9 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a magical and often hilarious cartoon. Beautiful animation, energetic music and a simple, well-told story are definite things to like, as well as how imaginative the humour is. Mickey is well voiced by Walt Disney and is a likable character in his own right, while Pluto is still as cute and lively as ever and the role of the lamp is well and truly inspired. The climax is where things get wild, and in terms of pacing and humour, all the better for it. And when I mean wild, I don't mean a bit I mean literally a lot.

Overall, a magical, fun and hilarious cartoon, with top notch production values and imaginative.

10/10 Bethany Cox
