Storyline

Pluto comes bounding outside to help Mickey get a Christmas tree. Chip 'n Dale see him and make fun of him, but the tree they take refuge in is the one Mickey chops down. They like the decorations, especially the candy canes and Mickey's bowl of mixed nuts. But Pluto spots them and goes after them long before Mickey spots them. Minnie, Donald, and Goofy drop by to sing carols. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A hugely enjoyable short that is one of my favourites!
24 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Pluto's Christmas Tree is perfect for 10 minutes for silly fun. It features the ever lovable chipmunks Chip and Dale, who happen to be in the Christmas tree that Mickey cuts down. Most of the short sees Pluto pursuing Chip and Dale, and the scene when he dives into the Christmas Tree after them and the bit before that made me laugh so much. The animation here is beautiful, I loved how they animated the inside of the Christmas tree. I also loved the incidental music, with the lovely choral arrangement of Deck The Halls at the beginning. Here you have your favourite characters, Mickey who is more of a minor role, compared to the increasingly silly but funny antics of Pluto and the chipmunks, who i consider the stars of the show. Minnie, Donald and Goofy even do a cameo at the end, and I will say I loved the ending, when the chipmunks put a sticker on Pluto's mouth saying "Do not open until next Xmas." Great vocals from Edward Brophy, James McDonald and Ducky Nash. A hugely enjoyable short, that I still watch at 17 years old. It just shows you're never old to still love and appreciate Disney. 10/10 Bethany Cox.
