The debut of Chip 'n' Dale
28 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Disney, and have always been amused by Pluto and Chip 'n' Dale. I'll be honest in saying that I prefer Chip 'n' Dale with Donald Duck, but they are still entertaining with Pluto. Private Pluto is notable for being Chip 'n' Dale's debut, and their debut is up there with their best. The chipmunks are great, very cute and mischievous, and Pluto is a more than worthy foil, I even felt sorry for him at some points. The animation is beautiful, the music energetic and the gags amusing. The story is slightly routine but fun in its simplicity, elevated by the sprightly pace and the chemistry between Pluto and the chipmunks. There are some little things I enjoyed also such as Pluto saluting with his ear. Overall, entertaining with Chip 'n' Dale making an impression in their first appearance. 10/10 Bethany Cox
