Comments

From Ryan : Minnie has just knitted a sweater for Pluto. Pluto, however, hates it and gets teased by Figaro when he wears it. One of my favorite shorts that I enjoy watching often. The background art of this short is exceptional.
From Baruch Weiss : Has anyone besides me noticed that a short clip of this short was used in the opening theme song for the "Walt Disney Cartoon Classics" that were released in the early 1980's?
From Christian : A nice short with a nice ending, but it kind of makes you feel sorry for Minnie towards the end. Also, it makes you wonder if she ever made another one for Pluto.
From Dino Cencia : The funny part is the end when Minnie put the sweater on Figaro and I hear Pluto laughing at him and Figaro makes a scary screech meow and looks scary at the camera when he's mad with the sweater on him.
From Maxwell Morton Goudiss : The ending of this cartoon reminds me of the MGM logo, with Figaro in the place of the MGM lion. But the slapstick is wrong. I mean, in this cartoon, we heard Figaro doing some screeching meows when he's angry and in the MGM logo, we heard the MGM lion roaring like all of the other lions. But, that's not as nearly as funny.
