Pluto is guarding a flock of sheep in the West; a coyote is sneaking up on that flock. The coyote fakes a bad leg; Pluto chases it away, only to have it run back ahead of him and go after the sheep. Pluto gets back and finds the coyote chasing the lone black sheep of the flock, after trapping the rest. The chase ends with the coyote buried under a toppling spire of rock, which forms a coyote of rock on the top. Written by

Pluto is not one of Disney's best characters but he's very cute and his energy appeals too. The Legend of Coyote Rock is a real treat. It's beautifully animated, bright, colourful and fluid while not trying to be more complicated than it needs to be. The music is lushly orchestrated and full of character, one of the most remarkable things about Disney was how the music matched each expression, gesture and action and that's the case with The Legend of Coyote Rock. The gags are at best hilarious and timed cleverly, the Coyote actually getting the funniest moments. The story is somewhat routine, but the fun, heart and cuteness as well as slick pace-wise makes it compelling and captivating too. Seeing Pluto with his protective side was very sweet and quite touching, and he still has his trademark energy. The Coyote steals the show though, what great comic timing and he is always doing something interesting. How the short deals and combines his silliness and Pluto's protecting side is done very well indeed. In conclusion, very funny and lovable, one of the better Pluto shorts in both extremes actually. 10/10 Bethany Cox
