Storyline

Pluto sees the great chow the mascots at the army base are getting and decides he wants some of that. He sneaks in and disguises himself as Gunther Goat, but the "food" is just a bunch of tin cans. Gunther runs him off. Later, Gunther chews on some tobacco, so Pluto does the same, which impresses the GIs but Gunther butts him and makes him swallow it, making Pluto turn all kinds of colors. While Pluto is out, Gunther prepares to butt him into the ammo dump, but Pluto collapses and Gunther himself gets blown sky high, clearing the way for a new mascot.

Crime Pays?
3 July 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

For a Disney Wartime propaganda cartoon, this one has a mighty strange message. It's okay to steal if you get away with it in the end. Basically, Pluto comes across the perimeter fence of some Army base and becomes mighty jealous when he discovers the base mascots enjoying steak dinners and such. He breaks in and swipes some goats food and is loved by the soldiers so much that he is given a special treat…a huge lump of tobacco. Fine message to send to the kids huh?

Eventually the soldiers tire of the Goat and choose Pluto as their new mascot. Not very funny but watchable for it's highly un-PC message to all the 1940's kiddies.
