Product Description

Mickey's faithful friend Pluto is unleashed in this first volume of the celebrated canine's cartoon capers. Spanning the years 1930 to 1947, these 29 classic shorts include Pluto's 1930 debut in "The Chain Gang" -- which was actually his first and second appearance playing unnamed, identical bloodhounds -- and the 1941 Academy Award(R)-winning short "Lend A Paw." The tales continue with a special "dogumentary" focusing on the birth and evolution of everybody's best friend, an excerpt from the TV program "A Story Of Dogs," a look back at the life of Pluto's father, animator Norman "Fergy" Ferguson, and more. It's no wonder Pluto's star rose faster than his temper.

Mickey's pal Pluto developed from the pair of bloodhounds in "The Chain Gang" (1930). Walt Disney liked animator Norm Ferguson's handling of the dogs' expressions, so the artists continued to work with the character. Ferguson's breakthrough animation of the flypaper sequence in "Playful Pluto" (1934), available on Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Black and White, Vol. 2, showed that the cartoon character could think and react to a situation through pantomime. Many cartoons follow the pattern of "Playful Pluto": the ochre dog tries to cope with either a recalcitrant object--skates in "On Ice," an inflatable rubber horse in "Beach Picnic"--or a cute but troublesome animal: a seal in "Pluto's Playmate," a gopher in "Canine Caddy" and the title character in "Pluto and the Armadillo."

Pluto's quick temper and willingness to rush in where pedigrees fear to tread made him a popular subject for cartoons (and military insignias) during World War II. In "First Aiders," Pluto serves as a reluctant subject when Minnie practices splinting and bandaging. Eager to do his bit, he serves as a military watch dog in "Private Pluto," "Dog Watch," and "Canine Patrol." In several of these cartoons, Mickey is reduced to playing straight man to Pluto, who gets the laughs. Pluto is pitted against a black housekeeper, reminiscent of Mammy Two-Shoes in the Tom and Jerry cartoons in "Pantry Pirate"--a rare example of ethnic stereotyping in a Disney short. (Unrated, suitable for ages 5 and older: cartoon violence, occasional ethnic stereotypes) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Love Pluto... April 20, 2005
This 2-disc DVD set is a must have! Herein are contained 29 classic shorts spanning from 1930 to 1947, in the first of what will likely be a 2 volume collection. Included are some of Pluto's, and Disney's best cartoons, from the Oscar winning remake "Lend a Paw," to the first appearance of Chip `N' Dale in "Private Pluto." Here is a rundown of what you get in this wonderful DVD set!

Disc 1:

The Chain Gang (1930): In this black and white Mickey Mouse short, Mickey is a prisoner in a chain gang who, after musical antics result in a riot, makes a break for it! Two bloodhounds, officially considered the first appearance of Pluto in a double role, are hot on his trail.

On Ice (1935): In this early, color Mickey Mouse cartoon, the whole gang is enjoying a day on the ice, but Donald Duck's prank playing nature puts Pluto in the spotlight.

Pluto's Quin-Puplets (1937): In this familiar classic, the first "official" Pluto short, we meet Pluto's family, as his mate, Fifi, leaves him to watch over their 5 puppies while she goes after some sausages. The outcome of which is a drunken Pluto and a fascinating paint catastrophe, resulting in some bizarre looking pups. Great short!

Beach Picnic (1939): Donald Duck, the official star of this short, sets out to have a picnic on the beach with Pluto in tow, but the day is spoiled by a familiar flypaper routine and those pesky ants! The Duck and the dog are GREAT together!

Bone Trouble (1940): Butch and Pluto battle it out over a bone here, the highlight of which is that famous funhouse mirror routine that saves the day! Great moments with Pluto in the hall of mirrors!

4.0 out of 5 stars PLUTO FINALLY GETS THE TREASURE TREATMENT October 11, 2004
In the latest offering from the Disney Treasures collection, pluto gets his chance to shine in 28 classica animated shorts. Since this is not all of them there will certainly be a volume two.

Among the Gems in this collection:

"The Chain Gang" featuring Plutos first appearance.

"The Army mascot" A classic from WWII, Pluto longs to be an Army mascot (especially after he sees how well they are fed) so he hatches a plan to take the place of the real mascot.

"Private Pluto" another WWII classic, Pluto is in the infantry guarding a pillbox from saboteurs.

"Pluto Junior" - Pluto's young son wants to play and fight to the exasperation of Pluto who only wants to take a nap.

"Canine Caddy" Mickey goes golfing with Pluto as his caddy.

As with the other sets there's a slew of extras: Leonard Maltin introductions, "The Life and Times of Pluto", "Pluto 101", Pluto's Picture Book (Excerpt from "A Story of Dogs"), Pluto's Pal Fergy, Still Frame Galleries.

More classic animation from Disney.

5.0 out of 5 stars German dude is right,... December 7, 2004
By S. Lu
...the tins this year have a pretty tacky paper back cover instead of the attractive printed-on covers that were done in Italy. The last wave of treasures was delayed due to problems at the Italian facility; in order, to make the Christmas rush, they probably went plan B on our current treasure wave, though its nice to see them housed in white double Alpha keepcases. I don't really care if the edition numbers are stamped on the can: the more collectible low-numbered cans would have been hoarded anyways and truly collectible items sell in the mere thousands (not 130,000). The Roy Disney autograph band went with Roy himself when he resigned from the Disney board to protest Michael Eisner's leadership. I'm not a Pluto fan (the MM club is the best one), but at these prices, all treasures are a steal.
