Storyline

A hen has taken up residence in Pluto's doghouse and laid her eggs. She steps out; Pluto comes home and the eggs all hatch, and the chicks take Pluto for mommy and won't let go. Then a grasshopper comes along, and all the chicks chase after it. Pluto tries to sneak off, but the chick that swallowed the hopper comes hopping along and bumps into Pluto. He feels sorry for it and is soon overrun by chicks again. He helps them scratch up a worm. The hen returns and argues with Pluto over the babies. She brings the rooster into the argument. While they fight, the babies run to the doghouse. Pluto wins and settles in, sad to see the chicks go without realizing they're hiding in the straw all around him. When they emerge, he's happy.

A for adorable and H for hilarious!
21 September 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Mother Pluto is an adorable and hilarious silly symphony, that is just living proof of how much you can love Disney. Here, the animation is bright, colourful and fluid, and the music is a real treat to the ears, and very playful.

I thought the little chicks were truly adorable, and Pluto was really likable as usual. Two of the highlights were the grasshopper and the fight between Pluto and the Rooster- these two scenes never fail to crack me up. You do feel sorry at the end of the short though for Pluto.

Overall, perfectly watchable, adorable and hilarious are the two words I can think of to describe this. 10/10 Bethany Cox
