| One of the better Pluto shorts
Generally I do like Pluto, I like his cuteness and also his sense of energy and fun. My feelings on his solo cartoons though have been generally on the mixed side, some are very funny and others are too routine or have a foil that is not as interesting as Pluto. The Purloined Pup belongs in the former, except for that it is not just funny, most of it especially the rapport between Pluto and Butch is hilarious. The best gags for me were when Pluto managed to dangle from a string by his teeth to avoid being caught by Butch and the gag with the connected pipe. Pluto does what he does best, being cute and energetic yet heroic and goofy, with a touch of resourcefulness too. Butch the Bulldog is a good antagonistic foil, and Ronnie is cute. The well-paced story isn't too routine either, this is one of not that many Pluto cartoons where Pluto actually has some real purpose and sense of direction. The animation is bright and colourful, and the music is beautifully orchestrated and full of character. In a nutshell, The Purloined Pup is wonderful, one of Pluto's better shorts definitely. 10/10 Bethany Cox
