Storyline

Winter. Pluto is sniffing around outside when he hears a noise. It's coming from a bag floating on an ice floe in a creek. Pluto rescues it, then loses interest when it turns out to be a kitten. But the kitten follows him home, and Mickey takes a liking to it, to Pluto's disgust. Pluto's devil and angel sides give him conflicting advice. Pluto puts the cat up to mischief, but Bianca the goldfish fingers Pluto as the real culprit, getting him thrown outside. The kitten falls into a well, and the angel beats up the devil, convincing Pluto to save the kitten. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Good-not great-Disney Oscar-winning short

This Oscar winner is a rather sweet, gentle, charming cartoon that, from another studio, probably would not have won the Oscar. While it's a good cartoon, it certainly isn't my choice (of those I've seen, I prefer Rhapsody in Rivets myself). This is the best one that prominently features Pluto and it cetainly does not make you scratch your head and wonder what they were thinking. A good, but by no means great, cartoon. Like most of the shorts (with some lamentable exceptions), this shows periodically on The Ink and Paint Club. Recommended.
