Storyline

Milton the cat is walking down the street and notices a yard full of delicious milk, birds, and fish not realizing it is guarded by Pluto. He shows his inferior minded pal Richard the set up and both help themselves to the goodies but are chased out by Pluto. From that point on, they try to get into the yard without waking Pluto using such tactics as sling-shooting Pluto out of the yard with his hammock and underwater diving for fish with a makeshift diving helmet.

PUSS CAFÉ (Charles A. Nichols, 1950) ***
2 January 2007 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Very enjoyable Disney animated short featuring Pluto; it deals with a couple of cats - one smart, the other dopey - who live inside a trash can and their attempts to raid the front-garden of a house, guarded by Pluto, for various types of food (milk-bottles left on the porch, birds in their wooden nest and fish in a swimming-pool). Their antics to avoid or antagonize Pluto, coupled with their own contrasting personalities, results in some delightful irreverence on the level of a typical "Looney Tunes" cartoon (somehow, I tend to take for granted the fact that Disney's work in this field would be inferior or, if you like, less appealing than that emanating from either Warners or MGM - which, I guess, explains why I still have a handful of Limited Edition DVD tins from this stable to go through!). Among the most inventive touches is when the dopey cat is made to go underwater by his brighter sibling wearing a make-shift scuba gear in the form of an empty milk-bottle and a water-hose; the final gag is also amusing, as Pluto chases the two cats to their 'abode' (while we are never shown the inside of the trash can, one can hear footsteps on stairways and doors being shut!) only to be met by their considerably larger parent.
