Comments

From Ryan : Pluto has a run-in with a little turtle and Butch the bulldog. While this cartoon is beautiful to look at (as most of Disney's cartoons are), it really isn't one of my favorites. I'm not too big a fan of Pluto shorts.
From Baruch Weiss : Yes Pluto has a run in with a turtle in this cartoon but not Butch (that's in Pluto's Housewarming.) One thing puzzles me however. In the sequence when Pluto is in the sandtrap the turtle bites him on his tale and we see his teeth. Turtles do not have teeth; in real life they have sharp beaks.
