Basic but wonderfully animated and entertaining
26 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not the best from Pluto or one of them, but Cold Storage is a very nice cartoon short all the same. The story- basically Pluto and a stork fighting over a doghouse and trying to keep warm- is very basic and at times too formulaic(actually a rather typical Pluto cartoon plot), and the pacing could have done with a little more snap. The best thing about Cold Storage is the animation, especially the background art which is vibrant and always interesting to look at. Colours wise, it is very bright and colourful, not too much though, and both Pluto and the stork are well-drawn. The music has a real liveliness and character, and the orchestration shimmers and rouses. The gags aren't necessarily big in variety but the timing of the gags is good and particularly the ending they are funny. Pluto and the stork work well together, the stork is funnier and more compelling but Pluto is more likable. All in all, wonderfully animated and on a good entertainment level but don't expect anything much new here. 8/10 Bethany Cox
