Comments

From Ryan : While Pluto is napping, two Siamese cats sneak into his yard to get some bottled milk. I noticed that these cats look similar to Gideon the cat from Pinocchio. The ending where Pluto chases the two cats into a trash can and a bigger cat comes out and scares him off can be funny.
From David Willis : I first saw this short on the British Oliver and Company DVD a few months ago (I am not sure if Oliver and Co. has been released in America yet). This short did not really interest me to start with but I found the chase sequence at the end quite amusing.
From Baruch Weiss : Two cats wonder into Pluto's yard and cause trouble. Some nice music in this cartoon, but not one of my favorites. Pluto was minding his own business and the two cats start the trouble. It's similar to Chip and Dale and Donald Duck cartoons like Trailer Horn and Crazy over Daisy.
From Dino Cencia : This cartoon with Pluto and the cats is really funny! Two cats are really hungry for food like milk, birds that change into chickens, and fish that change into fish sandwiches. But Pluto doesn't want them on his property. The funny part is when Pluto barked in the hose (bark bark bark bark bark!) and his bark echoed in the cat's ear underwater. Then the cat heard a big loud bark and Pluto chased them around town into the cat's home in a trash can and a big fat cat scared Pluto and he's running home scared. That was a funny cartoon. I give this cartoon a 90.
