Storyline

Pluto finds a bone - but also finds Butch the bulldog, who claims it for himself. Idea: Pluto paces off a distance, buried treasure style, and digs a large bone-shaped hole. Butch falls for it, and while he's digging deeper, Pluto almost makes off with the bone. Butch catches on just in time and chases Pluto, who ducks into a junkyard. The bone gets sucked into in a squeeze-bulb horn, which Pluto does battle with. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Even when craftier than usual, Pluto is still as likable as ever!
7 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While it is quite rightly set up in a straightforward way, from a story perspective T-Bone for Two is unexceptional with some of it feeling routine. And the gag with Pluto sitting on the horn and the horn getting stuck inside doesn't quite work, it's amusing but rather drawn out as well, Pluto is also at his least smart(in the short that is) in this gag which jars a bit. Apart from that, helped by the sprightly pacing the gags are funny and timed accordingly. Pluto's interaction with the horn and the ending stood out as being particularly effective in the laughs department. Pluto is also cleverer than usual with a smart and quite crafty side, he always was a cute, energetic and likable character- and still is actually in T-Bone for Two- but in other shorts of his he has displayed a somewhat dim-witted side. To see him being clever was a nice change of pace, he's had shades of it before T-Bone for Two and since but this is the most he's been. Anybody expecting the fluid, colourful animation and the lively and lushly orchestrated music will not be disappointed, both are just great here. Interesting to see a somewhat Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies vibe at the beginning, different but not bad different, interesting different. To conclude, a fun and very good short, any fans of Pluto will find plenty of reason to like T-Bone for Two. 8/10 Bethany Cox
