Storyline

In Holland, Pluto acts as a milkman (dog?) leaving canisters of milk on the town's doorsteps. While going about his job, he falls head over heels in love with Dinah the dachshund. In his enthusiasm, he accidentally rings the dike bell causing the town to think the dike is leaking. When the fraud is exposed, Pluto and Dinah are kicked out of the town. Upon leaving, they both notice the dike actually has sprung a leak. While Dinah plugs the leak, Pluto must return to the town and find a way to get the residents to follow him to the dike leak.

Even if it doesn't have the most exceptional of stories, In Dutch is still a great Pluto short
6 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pluto is always fun to watch, not the strongest of characters but he's cute and amusing at least. In Dutch is not a disappointment from Disney or from Pluto. Don't expect too much from the story, not really ever has been a strong suit in the Pluto shorts, it is rather routine and predictable. The energy, colour and emotional impact however is to be admired. The animation is great, some of the most fluid and colourful of the (relatively) middle-era Pluto shorts. The Dutch setting and attention to detail is just as impressive. The music doesn't disappoint either, it is as characterful and as lush as you expect. In Dutch is a lot of fun, with the right amount of tension(the whole fixing of the dam), tenderness(with Pluto crying like raindrops and Dinah trying to console him) and charm(the very end), and the pacing is without a hitch too. Pluto is wholly likable and Dinah is beyond cute.

All in all, while not much new story-wise, In Dutch is a winner. 9/10 Bethany Cox
