Comments

From Ryan : I didn't care for this short at all. The scenes where Pluto gets stuck in the fly paper gets tiring for me after awhile. The animation, however, is pretty nice.
From Trae Robinson : I notice the ending of this cartoon is just like Donald & Pluto where Donald has something stuck to him and Pluto licks him. On Donald & Pluto, Donald was stuck to magnets, but on this episode Donald is stuck to flypaper.
From Baruch Weiss : This short is generally boring for me with the exception of the music which is pretty good. It was boring not just the sequences where Pluto gets caught in fly paper (like in an earlier cartoon Playful Pluto) but also the scenes of the ants getting in Donald's food like in Tea for Two Hundred.
