Storyline

Two coyotes (father and son) smell food. They arrive in a campsite just in time to see the owner (presumably Mickey) heading downriver in a boat. The food is secured up in a tree, and Pluto, though sleeping, is standing guard. The father sets to work on getting the food down, but junior keeps dragging Pluto out for his dinner. Dad knows that Pluto is nothing but trouble, and keeps putting him back in the tent. They eventually get the food down, between run-ins with Pluto, and are preparing to feast when Pluto runs them off and the owner returns. Pluto realizes that, without the coyotes, he's going to get blamed, and goes off to join his former foes. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The Pluto vs. Coyotes swan-song and a terrific one at that
20 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pluto's outings with the two father and son coyotes were great fun to watch, though admittedly they were cases of the supporting characters making more of an impression than Pluto. Camp Dog is the swan-song of theirs and my personal favourite, terrific both as a character swan-song and as a cartoon in general. The animation is still brightly coloured and fluidly drawn, very like a vast majority of the Disney cartoons of the 40s-50s. The music always has been a high point with the Disney short films made from the late 20s all the way through to the early 60s, and Camp Dog is no exception, it's still full of lively energy and lush orchestration. The story may seem routine with Pluto battling someone/something but it is so well-paced, the attempts of Coyote Junior dragging Pluto out of the tent(and most of the time with Pluto not awake) are surprisingly varied and not repetitive and the ending is a great change of pace, not how you expect it to end at all. The humour and the gags are what make Camp Dog so good. The gags are imaginative and above all hilarious, especially with Pluto waking up and rushing past Junior into the woods, the ending and the part with Junior actually inside the box where the food is kept as his father is trying to hold onto the rope(and I think you can guess what happens next, this part is filled with comedy and tension which is wonderful). Pluto is still sweet and of immense likability, not coming across as a bland character at all, and his rapport with the coyotes is great. But the coyotes steal the show, the contrasts between father and son are beautifully realised and the back and forth between the two makes for hilarious physical comedy. Overall, a terrific Pluto short and an equally terrific swan-song for the coyotes. 10/10 Bethany Cox
