Comments

From Trae Robinson : This is a great cartoon with Pluto. It's one of those cartoons where he protects sheep or lambs. Goofy's famous yell is heard by the wolf when he falls off the rock. I don't know why Donald Duck's closing music is used for this Pluto short.
From Baruch Weiss : This short wasn't too bad, but it wouldn't be considered one of my favorites. However, I did like the name Blackie as I used to have a dog when I was young named Blackie as well. It was a cute poodle! I also enjoyed the part where the narrator says "a steady critter" then Pluto shows his smile that looks quite similar to Goofy's.
