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.

Pluto Works For Food

A Walt Disney PLUTO Cartoon.

Pluto schemes to become THE ARMY MASCOT at Camp Drafty, after seeing the superior chow the other animals there are receiving. But he must first get rid of Gunther Goat, the current holder of that position...

This is a humorous little film, but offers very little new to the often used plot of Pluto's difficulties with other creatures. Bulldog Butch, the bane of much of Pluto's existence, has a cameo as one of the other mascots; having him play a character called 'Winston' was probably the animator's salute to British Prime Minister Churchill.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi & Peter Pan. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay off.
