Reviews and Comments

From Dale :

Poor Pluto! Even though he tries to help the poor little bird, he still gets knocked crazy enough to see birds flying around his head not once, but twice! Not an enjoyable experience, I would say, since I have also experienced what Pluto went through...seeing the birds around his head anyway...I have had that happen to me at times.

From Bill Odom :

This cartoon was shown as an introduction to "Return to Neverland" which my three children and I attended on President's Day. I am hoping that this is a return to a tradition that I grew up with. The theater was at near capacity and the short drew a round of applause at its conclusion, indicating the audience's approval.

From Baruch Weiss :

I thought that this short wasn't too bad, but doesn't it seem rather odd that a dog is teaching a baby bird to fly? Oh well it's only a cartoon!
