Storyline

A friend shipped Mickey a baby elephant, Bobo (not, apparently, related to the Warner Bros. Bobo) as a playmate for Pluto. Pluto's first introduction is to Bobo's trunk, through a fence. He's not thrilled, and marches away. The playful Bobo grabs Pluto's tail and follows. Pluto's devil self tells him he's being replaced, and tells him to attack with red pepper.

One of the worst Mickey and Pluto cartoon shorts.
3 March 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

In this cartoon short, Pluto, convinced by his inner-devil, thinks that he has been replaced as Mickey's pet by a baby elephant (which, by the way, looks like a overgrown and overly chubby Dumbo) the Bobo. He appeared to be too friendly with Pluto, which ticked the dog off immediately.

Many of these Disney cartoon shorts, unfortunately, follow the same formula of an overly cute animal character who antagonizes the main character. For example, in past cartoons, Frankie the bird drives Figaro crazy; a penguin eats Donald's prized goldfish; and in this cartoon short, Bobo tries too hard to force Pluto to be friendly with him. Also, in a lot of these cartoons with Mickey's name in the title, Mickey himself hardly appears in the story.

The animation Mickey and Pluto looked good as always, but the drawings for Bobo looked pretty hideous. Not much laughs here and the overall story was pretty boring and non-substantive - just Pluto not getting along with Bobo, while Mickey is sequestered to the sidelines painting Bobo's new house. The ending left things ambiguous. One of the worst cartoons featuring both Mickey and Pluto.
