Short #61 of my 100 Day Disney Marathon
A simple but comically affective short, Pluto's Christmas Tree features Pluto and his obsession with catching Chip and Dale during the Christmas season. Obviously a Christmas tree is involved.
It's funny throughout, the animation is constantly comical, and I loved the payoff. My favorite gag is one of the chipmunks disguising as a Santa candle.
My one nitpick is that Mickey's voice was off. This came out after Walt retired on the voice work, and this imitator pales. The modern Mickey voice at least tries harder.....
But this is still a hilarious short that deserves the classic status.
"You dumb mutt! Now look what you've done to our... Pluto, we've got chipmunks in our tree! Cute little fellas."
NEXT UP.... Little Hiawatta.
