From Nikki : This is definitely one of my favorites. When Butch has the bone Pluto makes up this idea. He starts digging a hole in the shape of an extra large bone, he simply licks his chops and makes sure he pretends to measure out the locations when Butch finally gives up the bone he has and goes after the pretend bone that Pluto has dug up. He digs for quite a long time before realizing that it was a trick and Pluto has already made off with the bone. Its get even better when Pluto runs into a bicycle horn that his bone gets stuck in. Eventually Butch finally finds him and tries to take the bone back.
From Stephen : I think this is probably my favorite short of all time. The reason being I used to watch it over and over again when I was a kid. I own From Pluto with Love now, and remember renting it when I was about 3 or 4. It is my favorite, and I especially like the part when Pluto fakes out Butch with the hole in the ground.
From Baruch Weiss : This short is okay. It reminds me of my two dogs, Gigi and Rusty who fight over bones if one does not get one!
