Storyline

The weather forces a mail plane to turn back. It drops the mail at Outpost #5, staffed by Pluto, who is to carry it to the next airport. His mission is briefly thwarted by a totem pole (hence, this is probably Alaska), but his real enemy is a rabbit who covets the blanket on Pluto's sled. They chase each other down some treacherous winding slopes before they end up at the landing strip, where the two of them crash into a snow bank and send the mail pouch right into the pilot's hand.

Pluto in the Arctic
20 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mail Dog has a routine story and while sweet the conflict(between trying to get warm and staying warm) between Pluto and the rabbit is a little forced. On the other hand, the animation is excellent with vibrant colours and fluid backgrounds. The music maintains that character and energy that the Disney shorts excel at, it's also very pleasant to listen to especially at the end. At no time does Mail Dog feel dull, and there are some funny gags especially with the totem pole and when Pluto turns from yellow to blue. The first half is funnier and crisper and has more of Pluto's personality coming out as he struggles with things that are not part of his routine as a mail man. Pluto is still a likable and compelling enough character, though Donald and Goofy are much funnier lead characters. In all fairness for a character who doesn't speak Pluto is the kind of character who relies on expressions and the like to make him interesting, and on the most part Disney do nobly on that front. The rabbit is admittedly cute too. All in all, very nice short, not a favourite and Pluto has done better but does its job in entertaining very well. 8/10 Bethany Cox
