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.

Very sweet Mickey Mouse and Pluto cartoon.
29 September 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Though very much for small children (as ccthemovieman-1 points out), "Pluto and the Armadillo is a delight to watch, being a very sweet little cartoon with Pluto meeting an armadillo (who looks strangely like his ball). Just before he and Mickey need to go back home on a plane in South America, Mickey throws a rubber ball for Pluto to go and fetch. In doing so, Pluto discovers an armadillo, who has rolled him/herself up in a ball - just like the rubber one! Some confusion follows, then Pluto and the armadillo come to know each other.

There is a surprisingly emotional bit in this cartoon, but apart from that, it is a perfect thing for little children to watch, those who like Pluto and Mickey anyway. I personally like it because it is very sweet and very heartwarming. The animation and the narration is also good and worth noting.

I recommend this to people who like Pluto, Mickey, cute armadillos, little children's cartoons and for people who like cute cartoons. Enjoy "Pluto and the Armadillo"! :-)
