Comments

From Ryan : This short is okay, but it isn't one of my favorites. I find the plot where a character tries to impress his lover to get rather boring for me.
From Dino Cencia : This Pluto cartoon is funny! The funny part is when Pluto does amazed being a circus dog, and Dinah is happy and sighs hearts at him in the poster of the wonder dog. Now Pluto is the Wonder Dog! (Fanfare!) Dinah liked Pluto's show being a circus dog. I give it a 50.
From Baruch Weiss : What made this short worthwhile was (of course) the music even though it was cribbed from Dumbo and The Flying Gauchito segment in The Three Caballeros!
From Mike : This is one of my favorite cartoons. To this day I enjoy the scenes of Pluto envisioning himself as a circus performer.
