A Busy Time For The Sandman
21 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poor Pluto; he comes home exhausted, barely able to climb into his little bed. We get a glimpse of what he sees through his droopy eyelids as he wanders off to bed: the little kitten at the other end of the room The sandman is there, though, pouring sand in his eyes as the pooped-out pooch gets ready for some serious sleep time.

Unfortunately, Figaro, the little cat, is wide awake and he wants to play. He's not mean- spirited, just playful, but all Pluto wants his to get some shuteye.

Each time he starts to fall asleep, the cat comes by and wakes him! It's almost frustrating to watch and wind up feeling sorry for the poor dog. Actually, both Pluto and Figaro take turns being nasty and nice. The highlight of the cartoon is the sandman, who keeps coming back with bigger loads to put the dog back to sleep. The end of this story involves a twist with him

Once again, "cute" but not really too funny./ It was part of the "Best Pals - Mickey and Goofy" DVD. They did a nice job of restoring the prints of these old cartoons. They look terrific.
