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.

The last of the 1947 Pluto shorts hits a high note
25 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of Pluto's absolute best shorts, but one where it's very easy to be charmed by Pluto's Blue Note and why it was nominated for an Oscar. The ending is a little slow and the gag of Pluto crooning is an admittedly obvious one. Fortunately it is also very funny and one of Pluto's Blue Note's most memorable moments. Pluto still has an immense amount of energy and likability, because he is a non-speaking character he is very physical in how he looks and behaves, that's difficult to do well and it is done well here(and on the most part with Pluto too). The animation is fluidly drawn and has lots of vibrant colour, visually Pluto's Blue Note is very pleasing to look at. The music is characterful and lush, and you couldn't have asked for a better and more fitting song than the very sweet love song "You Belong To My Heart". The gags are well-timed and still tickle the funny bone(such as Pluto using his tail as a phonograph needle in the music store), and mainly because of the song Pluto's Blue Note is one of Pluto's sweetest shorts. The story is on the routine side, but when Pluto's Blue Note is this charming you don't care. All in all, not one of the best Pluto shorts or an animated masterpiece but still hits a high note. 9/10 Bethany Cox
