A hugely enjoyable short that is one of my favourites!, 24 June 2009
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

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.
