5.0 out of 5 stars Funnier Than You Think!, January 15, 2007
This review is from: Walt Disney Treasures - The Complete Pluto, Volume Two (DVD)
I bought this collection because I'm a fan of both Disney and animation; but, knowing that Disney had a rep for squeaky-clean characters, I didn't realize these cartoons would be as funny as they are! It seems over the years Pluto's humor became totally forgotten by cartoon fans...but this is one funny character.

As I watched these cartoons I began to realize that some of these could very well be mistaken for Looney Tunes, as the humor occasionally gets frenetic and fast-paced.....if Pluto didn't show up, you'd think these were done by the whackos at Warner Brothers (I intend "whackos" in a good way, believe me!).

Pluto's bravado yapping is what gets me cracking up...for example, he pretends to act macho by yapping furiously (as he hides behind a fence) at Butch the Bulldog - and runs away as Butch approaches! There are many other hilarious examples of his yapping throughout the set.

You'll be astonished at the OUTSTANDING job the animators did with Pluto's facial expressions and wonder how they were able to convey to the audience exactly what Pluto was thinking, without him uttering a single word; this is amazing work that we have taken for granted when we watch cartoons.

I also noticed the similarities between Pluto and Donald Duck - these two are the ONLY legendary Disney cartoon characters that actually get mad, pull underhanded pranks, cheat (Pluto checks a gumball machine to see if there's any loose change!) and occasionally prey on the weak. Ya think Mickey would do that? NAH!

Also included in this set are the complete Figaro The Cat cartoons (there are only a few, but the short "Figaro & Cleo" is shown TWICE: in the "Bonus Features" segment and the "From The Vault" segment...why?)

I hope you purchase this set; I bought it, intending to be nostalgic and mildly amused but found myself laffing out loud at ol' Pluto...I think you will, too.
