Review:

Rescue Dog © Walt DisneyPluto somehow is a rescue dog in the arctic, where he encounters the little seal from ‘Pluto’s Playmate’ (1941).

In a story all too similar to this earlier entry, Pluto tries to get rid of it, but when the seal rescues him from almost drowning, they become friends.

This is one of the more forgettable Pluto shorts in which Pluto befriends a little animal. Its story is told quite slowly. However, it contains some broad and funny animation of Pluto. The seal would return the following year in ‘Mickey and the Seal‘.

Watch ‘Rescue Dog’ yourself and tell me what you think:

This is Pluto cartoon No. 21
