Storyline

Seduced by a satyr, Pluto celebrates spring. He goes around enjoying the scents, then imitating various animals. But when he imitates the butterfly (that transformed from a caterpillar before our eyes), he gets in trouble. The butterfly had done a little dance with a water droplet; Pluto picks a beehive as his "ball". The bees, of course, attack, and Pluto escapes by diving into some bushes of poison ivy. Then the "gentle" rains of spring come, along with the hail ("hail, hail the rains"), making a mess of Pluto's house. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Quotes

Singing Caterpillar: [while climbing Pluto's tail, and spinning himself into a cocoon] Oh, little underslung friend so furry, / Wriggling by without a worry, / Hurry, hurry, hurry, lest thou be late, / To thy prearranged fate. / Oh, spin, spin, spin without questioning, / Spin thy cloak for evolutioning, / Hang, hang in suspended animation, / 'Til comes the call for alteration.

Wonderful spring time cartoon!
30 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a very nice Pluto cartoon, where the dog experiences the beautiful nature of Springtime, including wildflowers, chirping birds and busy bees. The highlight of the cartoon, I think, is the singing caterpillar and its cocooned transformation into a beautiful butterfly. I loved listening to the Latin music during the butterfly's dance scene - very catchy and harmonic.

Pluto also experienced his fair share of the negatives Spring has to offer, including Poison Ivy and rainstorms - pretty funny to watch Pluto to go through that. The music that accompanies each scene and action were brilliantly done. Great cartoon!
