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.

Not bad...
5 November 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this short cartoon began, I immediately was struck by how beautiful the colors were as well as the overall animation. It really looked much better than the typical Pluto short.

Inexplicably, Pluto is in Holland and meets up with a cute girl wiener dog The fall for each other, but Pluto soon gets in trouble over a dike alarm (no joke intended) and they are cast out of the town. However, soon the dike really IS about to burst and the two dogs do their best to save the very stupid residents--who keep thinking that Pluto is once again signaling a false alarm. I say let 'em die, but Pluto is a nice dog and does his dog-gone best to get their attention. In the end, Pluto is a hero and the town is saved.

It's a pretty nice cartoon, except for the annoying way they portray the Dutch--who sound too German and too stupid. But, nevertheless, it's pretty good.
