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 funniest Pluto cartoons!
1 March 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest Pluto cartoons, where he waits on Mickey by bringing him breakfast in bed and then going outside to buy him the Sunday paper, or least try to. Pluto loses his grip on the dime Mickey gain him to pay the newspaper fee and then loses it in a gutter. Pluto then placed a piece of chewed gum at the end of his tail and uses it to fetch the coin. After he successfully buys the newspaper, Pluto tangles with the wind as the newspaper pages fly everywhere.

It's funny seeing Pluto expressions throughout the short, and his antics in successfully getting the Sunday paper. It's classic Pluto with added humor and laughter.
