A Gentleman's Gentleman © Walt DisneyPluto serves Mickey breakfast on bed, then Mickey gives him a dime to get the morning paper.

Pluto loses the coin almost immediately down into a sewer, but he cleverly retrieves it using chewing gum. When Pluto gets the newspaper, he reads the funnies (a comic strip about… Pluto! – a rare cross reference to a Disney spin-off outside the cinema), before the wind starts to play with it, blowing the paper into the mud, leading to a blackface gag, which is a copy from the Pluto comic he has just read.

‘A Gentleman’s Gentleman’ is officially a Mickey Mouse cartoon, but most of the time is devoted to Pluto. In this cartoon his supreme silent character comedy is simply delightful, making ‘A Gentleman’s Gentleman’ one of the classic Pluto shorts.

Watch ‘A Gentleman’s Gentleman’ yourself and tell me what you think:

This is Mickey Mouse cartoon No. 110
