Storyline

Pluto is a guard dog on a military base. He's told there are saboteurs, and is assigned to guard a pill-box (gun emplacement). Before long, the "saboteurs" reveal themselves: Chip and Dale, making their debut, using the cannon-like gun as their own personal nutcracker. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Chip and Dale's Debut
26 February 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

In this short, Pluto is in the army. He's given the job of guarding a cannon, which happens to be the home of two chipmunks. The early scenes of Pluto attempting to march make this worth a look. However, it's not a fantastic debut for Chip and Dale. Jokes with Pluto getting klunked by the cannon get old quick.
