Storyline

Pluto is playing with a ball in the park when he mistakes a bubble gum machine for it. He tries briefly to get a gumball from the machine when a bee flies into the machine and carries a gumball off to his hive. Pluto goes after the hive and knocks it down; it's full of gumballs, which he eagerly scoops up and begins chewing. The bee returns and is understandably upset; he tracks down Pluto, but Pluto manages to defend himself with gum bubbles for quite a while. The bee manages to wrap the gum from one bubble around Pluto's legs, hobbling him. Finally, the bee flies into Pluto's mouth; Pluto blows a giant bubble around the bee.

Makes you want to chew bubble gum.
29 November 2013 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This Walt Disney cartoon short stars Pluto playing ball at the park. He later mistook a gum ball machine as the ball, and tries to get to the gum. When a bumble bee successfully snatches a gum-ball and takes it to its hive, Pluto follows it and knocks the hive down, along with its gum-ball stash. Pluto then scoops up all the gum-balls in his mouth and starts chewing and blowing bubbles, while trying to escape the upset bee at the same time.

With all the sweet gum-balls, this cartoon makes you want to chew some gum-balls yourself. Every time I pass a gum-ball machine, I am reminded of this cartoon short. It's not one of the more exciting cartoons as it is just Pluto chewing gum and avoiding a bee. It's one of those cartoons that was part of an episode of the Wonderful World of Color. It's cute, but there are better ones out there with Pluto.

Grade B-
