Storyline

Pluto is playing with a ball on the beach. The ball goes into the water and starts moving in strange ways, because a sea lion is playing with it. Pluto does not want to share the ball, and eventually tries to bury it, but the sea lion is too clever. Pluto goes after the sea lion, but has to tangle with a persistent octopus. The sea lion saves Pluto, and resuscitates him, so Pluto agrees to play. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Not one of Pluto's best, but still enjoyable
5 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've always enjoyed/loved Disney, and while I can think of better Pluto cartoons, I enjoyed Pluto's Playmate. The story is routine and unsurprising and the cartoon is more amusing than hilarious, though I did smile and chuckle quite a few times.

That said, it is beautifully animated, with wonderful music, crisp pacing and good chemistry between Pluto and the seal. Pluto is very cute and energetic with some excellent work done to make him more realistic and the seal is a worthy foil, though I have more of a soft spot for Figaro and Chip 'n' Dale.

Overall, enjoyable and recommendable, but Pluto's Playmate didn't strike me as his very best. 7/10 Bethany Cox
