Comments

From Michelle I. : While not a top favorite, I always did like Food for Feudin. Seeing Chip and Dale in the garden gloves in their pre-Rescue Ranger days is always good for a laugh.
From Grace : This is really a funny Chip/Dale cartoon. Seeing them with the garden gloves it's really hysterical, especially the ending when Pluto, Chip and Dale's hands are knots. I recommend this short.
From Baruch Weiss : This is the 3rd of 4 cartoons where Pluto was fighting with the chipmunks. As I mentioned in Private Pluto there are Chip and Dale cartoons which I'm fond of and cartoons which I'm not fond of. This one I'm fond of because of the music throughout the cartoon and here's what's more; this time it's Pluto who starts the trouble! The Chipmunks aren't doing anything to Pluto and he just puts his bones in their tree so they try (without much success) to get their nuts back and in the process play with Pluto and pat him on the back and scratch his chin!
From Bryan Hensley : This is one of a few cartoons where Chip 'n' Dale mess with Pluto! When they were looking for good nuts, and Chip kicked Dale's bottom, it seems weird that Dale imitated Donald, right down to his quack-like gibbering! Later on, he imitated Goofy! (Hence his "wah-ha-ha-hooie" yell, only high-pitched!) When Chip 'n' Dale were in a pair of gloves, they remind me of a variety show Fox Kids used to do; Cartoon Cabana. (Nearly everyone in the live-action bridging sequences was a speaking hand!) But I digress, Chip 'n' Dale ended up playing fetch with Pluto and one of them threw the ball far. That way, they'd put their nuts back in the tree. Boy, was Pluto upset when he discovered those moving hands were really chipmunks! Once his paws were tied around the tree, Chip 'n' Dale ended up tying themselves up to each other's hands! This short was a great one! In the scene where Pluto and Chip fall down a hill, Pluto howled like he did in the earlier short Rescue Dog, only his voice didn't echo!
