A Pluto short where the best character is the turtle
18 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Most of Pluto's shorts are enjoyable to watch, and Pluto's House Warming is enjoyable. Pluto's House Warming is also an example though of the titular character having been in and done better. The first half is very standard stuff with the humour amusing and cute but not hilarious with a predictable story and solid if un-vital pacing. Pluto also isn't as compelling as he has been. He still is a likable and energetic character and his chemistry with the turtle is very well done but compared to the support characters he is a little bland and could perhaps have been more mischievous. The animation however is colourful and fluid with a lot of vibrancy and attention to detail. The music matches every gesture, emotion and gag brilliantly, so clever as usual the orchestration, and still manages to be characterful and a beauty to listen to. While standard in the first half, the pacing and humour really pick up in the second half once Butch arrives on the scene. The confrontation between Butch and the turtle was the highlight. The gags in this half are helped by good timing and are very funny, the confrontation mentioned in the previous sentence is hilarious. Butch is a good adversary, but the best of the three characters is the turtle. He has a very cute appearance but is very charismatic and is funny without effort seemingly, a character deserving of more appearances and even a short of his own. All in all, good short but not great, the first half is alright but picks up later to entertaining. 7/10 Bethany Cox
