Storyline

A gopher sucks a flower into his hole, waking up Pluto. He chases the critter, but gets scolded by Minnie for digging up her flower bed. She pots the flower he dug up, and unknowingly includes the gopher in the pot, which she carries inside. The frustrated gopher digs under the rug, which wakes Pluto up again. This is his turf, and he manages to toy with the gopher for a while, until it climbs into a fireplace bellows. Pluto squirts it out, and between a soda bottle and guitar strings, it bounces off the walls for a while before shooting out the dog door game over, winner: gopher!

Gopher in the garden
13 November 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This Disney short rather highlights Pluto's limitations in cartoons and also owes a debt to the Tom and Jerry cartoons. Even my son mentioned it reminded him of the cat and mouse capers.

Pluto finds a gopher in Minnie's garden and tries to get rid of the annoying gopher without much success. In fact in trying to get rid of him Pluto has destroys the garden in the process.

Minnie Mouse makes a small cameo appearance but we have seen this variation of a formula before as Pluto tries to get rid of a pesky animal that is annoying him. An energetic short but also instantly forgettable.
