Quite Boring
6 July 2004 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

In this short, Pluto is assigned to guard the army base against potential invaders. This task he accepts with keen enthusiasm. But the invaders turn out to be Chip and Dale (before they became Rescue Rangers) and they play lots of pranks on poor old Pluto.

Basically, they are using the weight of a huge gun barrel to crack nuts. But when Pluto gets angry at this they use it, instead, to crack Pluto's head. Not very nice and the bulk of the 'humor' comes from this. I didn't find myself laughing so much, or at all. Pluto isn't really a strong enough character on his own. He works better when teamed with Mickey.

There's not much invention going on here and the short is rather simple-minded. Not a classic.
