Comments

From Tom Wilkins : A cute story, but not a great short. I think this is the only Disney short that captions the title page as "A Walt Disney Pluto the Pup." In reality, Pluto was not a pup anymore at 49 dog years (since debuting in 1930).
From Jesus Daprice : How come Pluto and the pups slept in a barrel? Couldn't they have just scratched on the door and have their owner (most likely Mickey) let them in? That way they could've spent the night in the house.
From K. Richard : Am I the only one one that's noticed that that cocker-spaniel that Pluto was involved with in several cartoons bears a strong resemblance to the dog from "Lady and the Tramp"?
From Ryan : As someone else pointed out in their comments, Fifi does look like Lady from "Lady and the Tramp." Pluto, however, is no Tramp. He's just plain 'ol Pluto the Pup (as this short says in the opening credits, although he really isn't a pup). This time Pluto is a daddy and has five cute little mischievous puppies (isn't it odd that all of them look like Pluto and not one of them looks like Fifi). It was just hilarious seeing them get into all sorts of trouble like when they were down in the basement, they had a run-in with a hose and some paint. Pluto got drunk on moonshine that accidentally fell into his mouth. Later after Fifi comes back with supper, she sees what a mess her family has become and kicks them out of the doghouse leaving them to sleep in the barrel all night. Someone else had a question in their comments about why Pluto and the pups didn't just bark at the back door so that their owner could let them in. Hey, they'd get the better place to sleep than cranky old Fifi. This cartoon is really great and I recommend it to all you Pluto fans out there.
From Baruch Weiss : Five years after this short Pluto was a father again, but this time he had only one pup and Fifi did not co star with him. Perhaps they got divorced.
From Michelle I. : This short is pretty cute; Pluto's kids prove to be more than he can handle while his Pekingese wife is away.
From Mike : This is a good Pluto cartoon. The scenes of him getting drunk off the moonshine was just hilarious. I loved the kids even though they were trouble.
