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

One of the better Pluto cartoons
6 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always enjoyed the Pluto cartoons, a few are on the routine side, but others are classic. A Gentleman's Gentleman is not his very best one of my very favourites, but it is one of his best. Pluto steals the show, cute, energetic and also moving. He is brilliantly animated here too, especially in the facial expressions. Mickey also makes an impression. The story is nothing groundbreaking nor does it try to be. It still skips along nicely and is always entertaining. A Gentleman's Gentleman is gentle and humorous in tone, the music is rousing and ever enhancing the visuals and action and the animation consists of beautiful colours and fluid backgrounds. Overall, one of the better Pluto cartoons to me. 9/10 Bethany Cox
