Storyline

Mickey and Pluto make a short stopover on a South American flight. Mickey throws Pluto's ball into the jungle, and he chases it but it looks exactly the same as an armadillo that's rolled up into a ball. This, of course, greatly confuses Pluto for a while. But he eventually makes friends with the armadillo. He chases the critter into a cave right behind his ball, and rips the ball apart thinking it's the armadillo, which makes him very sad until the armadillo shows up again.

Cute, But Just For The Tiny Tots
20 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was quite informative, at least first two minutes, as we are given facts about the armadillo It was pretty interesting, too.

The setting is Belem, Brazil, where we next see another species, "tourista Americano," deplane for a quick stopover. Actually we see two: Micky and Pluto. The dog sees a ball nearby (the armadillo forms that shape while protecting itself) and begins playing with it. Soon, the ball is the nearby jungle and it begins to cause Pluto all kinds of problems.

That's basically, the gag in here: Pluto trying to deal with this strange creature who looks like a hard rubber ball, but is alive. The armadillo spends much of the cartoon batting her little eyes at Pluto, winning him over. It gets a little too repetitive.

What you usually get with these old Disney cartoons is something to please the little kids, is mildly amusing for adults and looks good with bright, clean colors. This one was strictly for the little ones.
