Technically it's great but to me it felt disjointed structurally
13 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong I love Disney and I have always liked Pluto. But I have always considered Pluto's Kid Brother one of Pluto's weakest cartoons. Granted, the animation is very good, with beautifully drawn characters and colourful, fluid backgrounds, and the music has so much character to it. Pluto has always been cute and energetic and his role in Pluto's Kid Brother is no exception, and his general irresponsibility proved good potential for this cartoon. However, while I admire the attempt to introduce a new character and not neglect Pluto, KB(Pluto's kid brother should have been compelling but felt bland instead. Structurally, Pluto's Kid Brother felt disjointed, scenes rush from one scene to the next with little amusing or coherent, with Pluto's struggle with the cat weird(and actually by not involving KB makes him even blander) and the scene with the dog a little more involving, though Pluto going all blazes and then backing away made little sense. In conclusion, as usual it is technically fine but it didn't leave much to be desired in terms of story. 5/10 Bethany Cox
