Pluto is smitten with Dinah, who won't give him the time of day; instead, she moons over Prince, the Wonder Dog (as seen on a circus poster). Pluto envisions himself performing Prince's tricks. A nearby trash-filled yard has what Pluto needs to fulfill his fantasy, and discover just how hard some of the tricks are. It also has Butch, who is amused by all this, but soon goes after Pluto. In escaping Butch, Pluto manages to successfully do most of Prince's stunts, and his lover sees him. Written by Jon Reeves <>

A canine treat
6 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Wonder Dog is not one of my favourite Pluto cartoons, but I do like it very much. It is a little routine in terms of story perhaps, but it is crisply paced with some humorous, well-timed gags. The animation is clean and smooth, with a vibrant colour palette, and the music is energetic and dynamic, always enhancing the impact of the action. Pluto is the star here, he is always cute and entertaining, and he is well supported by brutish Butch and beautiful Dinah(I just wish there was more to see of her after this cartoon).

All in all, Wonder Dog is a recommendable canine treat of a cartoon, technically great and always amusing. 8/10 Bethany Cox
