A Frustrating Life For Pluto
21 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mickey is giving Pluto a birthday party. He rolls out a cake under a backyard gazebo. The cake has little fire hydrants on it! It looks good to the dog, who is salivating looking at the cake. Unfortunately, he has to take a bath first, and then has to wait for the guests to arrive.

When those have taken place, poor Pluto gets a lot more frustration as the kids toss him around and torment him, not in a nasty way but it comes out that way to the poor dog. Man, if this is a normal Pluto cartoon - and I've seen a few them - I don't want to see too many more because you feel the dog's frustration in each story. Pluto is always been teased and tormented by somebody. It's a wonder the dog didn't turn into a mental case.

Yes, all's well that end's well, but for 98 percent of these Pluto cartoons, things don't go so well.
