The snow covered mountains; but not to worry, rescue dog Pluto is on duty. Actually, given that he barely keeps himself safe, maybe you should worry. A playful seal keeps stealing his cask of grog.

The high mountains are a dangerous place for humans, so valiant rescue dogs mount the guard, keeping their casks of brandy at the ready. So does Pluto, too proud to play a single paw-move with a jolly polar seal-pup, who simply sees the wooden thing as a fun toy, but the bumbling beast soon discovers the perils of the ice-scape extend to canines who snootily stick their snout too high to see where they tread: he stumbles into the ice, gets caught under it and passes out. The slick seal bravely dives in after him to pull his unwilling playmate out, already covered in a huge ice-block, and puts the cask to miraculously effective use on its carrier.

Pluto vs Salty
17 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a lovely cartoon! Not one of my immediate favourites of the cartoons starring Pluto, but still classic entertaining stuff with a touch of cuteness. The story is a tad routine but kept afloat by the crisply timed humour, Pluto's energy and the fact that Salty the Seal is simply adorable. Not to mention that, although Pluto has had more effective foils(ie. Chip 'n' Dale), these two are very amusing together. The animation has been of slightly smoother quality in other cartoons with Pluto, but the colours still look beautiful. The music is jaunty, dynamic and makes what's going on on screen even more effective.

Overall, a lovely cartoon, cute and funny. 9/10 Bethany Cox
