Storyline

Mickey's on vacation at Camp Utopia. At first Pluto thinks it really is utopia: trees everywhere and a cat to chase. But the cabin rules are strict: no dogs indoors, and dogs must be muzzled and leashed. Mickey puts Pluto out to sleep, just out of reach of his food, and the cat comes down and taunts him. Pluto falls asleep and dreams of his "Plutopia" with a subservient cat begging Pluto to bite him and catering to his every need. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

"That was a good one sir, have another chocolate bone bone!"
23 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The ending in Plutopia is rather abrupt, but that is the only thing negative that I can say about this Disney short. It is exceptionally animated, it is so colourful and vibrant with a lot of crisp detail. As I've said many times, the music is a large part of the Disney shorts' success and appeal, and Plutopia is just another example of this. The orchestration is really lovely to listen to, and has lots of character as well. The short has a more surrealistic edgy tone to most Disney or even animated shorts, but as well as having that tone it never ceases to be hilarious. I also liked how Mickey and Pluto's friendship was conveyed, it is very clear that these two care for one another and genuinely so. The pacing is fast and never dulls, not even for a second, while the gags are some of the inventive of any of the later Pluto shorts. The characters also are a big ingredient to why Plutopia is so good to me. Mickey does take a back seat, but not in a way that he is bland. Milton is a very funny addition, but Pluto fares best, his cute and energetic persona is in full flight here as well as that refreshing inner pup angle. All in all, apart from the ending Plutopia is great and one of the better later Pluto shorts. 9/10 Bethany Cox
