Storyline

Two chipmunks have made a cozy little home for themselves in the wood-burning stove of an empty cabin. They sleep in a matchbox, wash up in an empty acorn shell filled with water and look at their reflections on the back of a spoon, which serves as their bathroom mirror. They even have a staircase made with a pocket comb. Invading their space are Mickey Mouse and his dog Pluto, who are all set for a swell vacation. They don't reckon on the two squatters. Pluto immediately discovers the presence of these two pests, but Mickey never finds out. All he knows is that when he tries to light the stove, the matches go out; he doesn't know the chipmunks are blowing them out. Soon, Mickey is outside chopping wood, while Pluto is alone with the chipmunks. Pluto wants blood, but he'll end up with a bottle of ketchup. Written by J. Spurlin

Unremarkable yes, enjoyable yes
28 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Nominated for an Academy Award (I personally think there are better Disney shorts out there) Squatter's Rights is enjoyable but unremarkable. There are some good gags that come by at a fast pace and work mostly, but I for one found the final gag rather cruel. Also the pacing is rather uneven. As for my favourite Mickey, Pluto and Chip 'n' Dale cartoon, it is still Pluto's Christmas Tree. That said though, there is a lot to enjoy. Pluto gets most of the screen time, with Mickey more of a secondary character if anything else, but it is the chipmunks who steal the show. The animation and music are both nicely done, and the voice acting from Walt Disney and Pinto Colvig is excellent. Overall, nice and enjoyable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
