Storyline

Pluto has a job in the Wild West as sheep dog. Guarding his flock proves a busy job when the coyote Bent-tail and his inexperienced son Bent-tail junior, who proves more of a bother then a help for dad, are determined to do what comes naturally to their species, hunting themselves a healthy diet of juicy meat, such as mutton, even if it takes some modern methods to get passed their distant canine cousin.

A Walt Disney PLUTO Cartoon.

SHEEP DOG Pluto has enough difficulty guarding his flock without the unwanted interference of two hungry coyotes.

This little film is fun, but quite unremarkable. The mangy coyotes, Bent-Tail and his none-too-brilliant son, Bent-Tail, Junior, were featured in a short series of Disney cartoons, only to vanish as quickly as they came.

Walt Disney (1901-1966) was always intrigued by drawings. As a lad in Marceline, Missouri, he sketched farm animals on scraps of paper; later, as an ambulance driver in France during the First World War, he drew figures on the sides of his vehicle. Back in Kansas City, along with artist Ub Iwerks, Walt developed a primitive animation studio that provided animated commercials and tiny cartoons for the local movie theaters. Always the innovator, his ALICE IN CARTOONLAND series broke ground in placing a live figure in a cartoon universe. Business reversals sent Disney & Iwerks to Hollywood in 1923, where Walt's older brother Roy became his lifelong business manager & counselor. When a mildly successful series with Oswald The Lucky Rabbit was snatched away by the distributor, the character of Mickey Mouse sprung into Walt's imagination, ensuring Disney's immortality. The happy arrival of sound technology made Mickey's screen debut, STEAMBOAT WILLIE (1928), a tremendous audience success with its use of synchronized music. The SILLY SYMPHONIES soon appeared, and Walt's growing crew of marvelously talented animators were quickly conquering new territory with full color, illusions of depth and radical advancements in personality development, an arena in which Walt's genius was unbeatable. Mickey's feisty, naughty behavior had captured millions of fans, but he was soon to be joined by other animated companions: temperamental Donald Duck, intellectually-challenged Goofy and energetic Pluto. All this was in preparation for Walt's grandest dream - feature length animated films. Against a blizzard of doomsayers, Walt persevered and over the next decades delighted children of all ages with the adventures of Snow White, Pinocchio, Bambi, Peter Pan and Mr. Toad. Walt never forgot that his fortunes were all started by a mouse, or that simplicity of message and lots of hard work always pay off.
