Mickey goes into a souvenir shop out west and leaves Pluto with a buffalo bone to chew on. A small dog comes to take it away and runs into a ring of cactus with it; Pluto is too big to enter the same way, so he comes in from above and finds himself stuck inside until the small dog helps. Written by

Disney has been and always will be close to my heart. Pueblo Pluto is one of those Disney shorts that is nice, but there is not much that is exceptional about it. It is lacking in laughs, essentially it's an example of a short that is more cute than it is funny, and the story, while not exactly dull, is very routine and rather thinly structured. Mickey is disappointingly bland, after seeing him being characterised so splendidly in many of the shorts from the 30s it is a shame to see him have so little to do. Here only his closing line raises a smile. Pueblo Pluto is beautifully animated though, the backgrounds are really colourful and have a lot of fluidity. The music is equally wonderful, brimming with vibrant energy. Pluto and the little dog are very likable characters and their interplay is very cute and has some amusement at least.
Overall, a nice short but not all that much to it at the end of the day. 6/10 Bethany Cox
