Storyline

Donald receives a mail order hypnosis kit complete with hypnotic goggles and decides to test it on Pluto. Using the goggles, he convinces Pluto he is a mouse, a turtle, and a chicken. Each "transformation" Pluto undergoes Donald finds extremely funny so he keeps at it until he notices chicken Pluto getting into a fight with a rooster. Donald helps Pluto win the fight by making him think he's a lion but, unfortunately, the goggles break and Donald is chased about by Pluto until he regains his senses after a fall.

A Donald Duck short where Pluto steals the show
13 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Disney and Donald Duck, and Pluto has done a lot that I enjoy. I have seen better than The Eyes Have It, but there is still much that is very entertaining. The animation is beautiful to look at, the vibrant colours and fluidity in the backgrounds and character designs is very 1940s Disney. That of Pluto changing into different animals was what impressed me most. In regard to the music, what I have always loved about the Disney shorts is how the music enhances the gags and the action while also being adeptly composed. There are no disappointments with the music of The Eyes Have It, it has everything that I have always loved with the music of the Disney shorts. The story is simple but not predictable- excepting the Pluto causing chaos ending- with a great idea. The gags are highly amusing, the sequence with Pluto as a chicken is hilarious as well as Pluto being tricked into thinking he's a mouse(even the attitude is just right). Donald is always a pleasure to watch, and while more understated than usual- it is also a role that could have easily done by Mickey every bit as effectively- he is fun. It is Pluto though who steals the show and has the best moments.

All in all, very entertaining though Pluto steals the show under Donald in my opinion. 9/10 Bethany Cox
