Nothing new but technically impressive and amusing, 10 April 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Pluto's Surprise Package is nothing new story-wise coming across as routine, but it is crisp in the pace and has enough imaginative gags and physical humour to amuse. The animation is often beautiful especially in the colours though the fluid backgrounds are also to be admired, and the music is jaunty and accompanies the humour and what's going on on screen very well as is so typical of the Disney cartoons. Pluto is very cute and energetic as he always is.

Overall, the story is nothing extraordinary, but overall Pluto's Surprise Package is a very nice and amusing cartoon.

8/10 Bethany Cox
