Storyline

The birds are singing, the bees buzzing, and the crickets chirping. Pluto wants to join in this glorious music, but he's tone deaf. He finds his way to a music store while the owner is at lunch, and discovers that his tail can be used like the stylus of a record player; he returns home with a plan equipped with a crooner record, he soon has every dog in the neighborhood swooning. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A Walt Disney PLUTO Cartoon.

Spring is here and Pluto is just full of inner music which he can't seem to express - until inspiration strikes...

Nominated for an Oscar, PLUTO'S BLUE NOTE is an enjoyable cartoon with very little plot. That's Frank Sinatra being spoofed at the end of the film. Sharp eyes will spot Fifi, who was Pluto's doggie girlfriend during the 1930's, among the enthusiastic canine females at the conclusion. This was her final cartoon appearance.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi, Peter Pan and Mr. Toad. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay off.
