Comments

From Jerry Edwards : Tired storyline that has been done often - Pluto tries to get rid of some other animal that threatens to replace Pluto in Mickey's affections. Nothing of interest to me in this cartoon.
From Ryan : This short was okay, but it really wasn't one of my favorites. Bobo the elephant was a little too cute for me. However, the scenes with Pluto add some enjoyment.
From Baruch Weiss : This is the first appearance of Pluto's Devil. His next and last short would be Lend a Paw.
From Mike : This short is okay. I do like Pluto squashing the devil at the end. I woulda liked to see Pluto and Bobo make friends at the end.
