When Pluto, Jr is in the sock high up on the laundry line, there are other socks on the line (especially one to his immediate right). But when Pluto Sr. gets jarred awake from Junior's barking, he looks up to see ONLY the sock which contains Junior. All of the other items have disappeared from the clothes line.

From Stephen : I can't say this is one of my favorite Pluto shorts, cause I never really remembered him having a son. It is a little entertaining, though, so I recommend watching it once in a while.
From Julie Arsenault : I love Pluto, along with his pal/master Mickey Mouse, and Donald Duck; It's kind of queer because, usually I am a cat-lover, but Pluto is SO cute, playful and funny (like his cartoons). I have never seen this cartoon, but l have watched online, and now it is one of my favorite Pluto cartoons on my list (if I HAD one that is); and you know, I never would have guess, that Pluto had a son in this cartoon.

Pluto, Jr. is SO like his daddy with his curiosity; and also the knack for getting into trouble. I love the scene with the balloon (it was hilarious). And like most little kids, Jr. wants to play with Dad; But Dad just want to relax and nap.

From Baruch Weiss : I have this short on The Complete Pluto: Volume 1. I saw it recently and it was pretty good. I thought that Pluto Junior was cute and the music was nice!
