A Great Christmas Cartoon, 12 December 2003
Author: travisimo from Pocatello, Idaho, USA

Now, I admitted in my 'Pueblo Pluto' entry that I'm not a huge fan of Pluto (or Chip and Dale for that matter), but this animated short is a classic. The visuals are just great, like when Chip and Dale first notice their home has been transformed into a beautiful Christmas tree. Pluto loses his sanity for a moment and chases these chipmunks all over the place, destroying everything. It's just like a classic `cat and mouse' cartoon. Mickey also fits in nicely with a supporting role, and it's also interesting to see him wearing something other than his trademark red shorts and yellow shoes.

Finally to make this cartoon even more memorable, lovable Disney characters, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald make a cameo and sing 'Deck the Halls,' only to be joined by Pluto's ear-screeching rendition. If I were a rich guy, I'd love to get the original animation cel of the final scene of what Chip and Dale do to Pluto. It's just a classic!

My IMDb Rating: 9/10
