Very cute and entertaining
19 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I like Pluto Junior, while not among Pluto's best it's a long way from among his weakest. The story is routine and not that much surprising, and while very sweet and quite likable Pluto's son is not the most compelling or unique of characters basically just being a mini-version of Pluto himself. Pluto is more of a secondary character, but he does steal the show, just doing what he does best. The animation is colourful and fluid, and the music is upbeat and enhances the action very well. The gags are done with energy and are very funny, I liked the balloon gag but the funniest moments come from Pluto trying to save his son.

All in all, while it is not really an exceptional Disney short I do like Pluto Junior quite a bit. 8/10 Bethany Cox
