Cute More Than Funny, But It Has Its Moments
19 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, what an amazing-looking new doghouse Pluto has, and it's just about done with it, except to back to his old beat-up house and get the "Home Sweet Home" sign. His new place even has a big wooden compartment where his bones are categorized and given separate slots (t-bone, sirloin, ribs, etc.)

When he returns from getting that last piece from his old house, he sees some little turtle is taking over his house, throwing out his bones and dog-dish. Pluto has a few unsuccessful attempts and keeping the little guy out of his new house.

The humor doesn't really start until the second half when a big bulldogs also makes himself at home in Pluto's place. What follows is good stuff with the little turtle providing some humor and surprises.

Kudos to the team which restored this animated short. It looks fabulous on DVD. The colors were bold and magnificent. It was part of the "Best Pals - Mickey & Pluto" DVD.
