Poor Pluto having to deal with annoying gopher., 30 October 2015
Author: OllieSuave-007 from California, USA

In this Disney cartoon short, Pluto gets a bad rap at Minnie's house when a gopher disturbs his sleep and digs up the flower bed, but is getting blamed for it by Minnie. When the gopher manages to get inside the house, it's a tug-a-war and a game of cat and mouse between him and Pluto.

There's plenty of slapstick action, but I didn't like seeing poor Pluto getting the brunt of all the bad luck and blame, while the mischievous gopher gets away with murder. So, to me, it's not a very enjoyable cartoon short. Minnie is hardly in it at all and, had she discovered that a gopher is responsible for the mess in her backyard, it would have been a better cartoon story.
