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.

A good one from Pluto!
13 May 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Pluto attempts to show the busy bees, chirping crickets and singing birds that he can crack a note, so when he sees a music store nearby, he might just be able to sing those blues. It's a funny little cartoon with Pluto dancing around to some catchy music by a music box - full of surprises and fun. I first saw this cartoon as part of a Disney cartoon classic compilation video from the rental store. It brings back memories when seeing this cartoon again years later; it is sure to bring smiles and laughter to both adults and children.

There is not a whole lot of adventures or excitement, but it's still a cool cartoon short and that make you want to sing along!

Grade B+
