Storyline

Mickey Mouse lies in bed like a lord, getting served breakfast by man's (and mouse's?) best friend Pluto as gentleman's gentleman. Next duty is to fetch the paper, but also pay for it with a coin for the vending machine, and those round things have a nasty habit of escaping a dog's teeth and bouncing over the pavement till they end up in the gutter. After enough attempts to fish and spend the penny, Pluto has a newspaper to carry the same way. The wind has a nasty way to get a better grip on page after page then the dog, so by the time he delivers the daily dose of printed news it's an embarrassingly muddy mess... Written by KGF Vissers

Classic Pluto
7 January 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Pluto sets out to get Mickey the Weekend newspaper but meets with various disasters along the way. This is one of the quintessential Pluto comedy shorts. Pluto's solution to retrieving a dime he has accidentally dropped down the sewer is a classic Disney moment. Just watch Pluto's face to see just how much the animator could convey in these early cartoons. - His despair in loosing the coin, his hope when he comes up with an idea of how to retrieve it. His frustration when, at first his idea seems to fail, and finally, his elation at having succeeded. This is not the best Pluto cartoon, but it's certainly one of the good ones.
