Reviews and Comments

From Ryan :

This short is okay, but it isn't one of my favorites. I find the plot where a character tries to impress his lover to get rather boring for me.

From Dino Cencia :

This Pluto cartoon is funny! The funny part is when Pluto does amazed being a circus dog, and Dinah is happy and sighs hearts at him in the poster of the wonder dog. Now Pluto is the Wonder Dog! (Fanfare!) Dinah liked Pluto's show being a circus dog. I give it a 50.

From Baruch Weiss :

What made this short worthwhile was (of course) the music even though it was cribbed from Dumbo and The Flying Gauchito segment in The Three Caballeros!

From Mike :

This is one of my favorite cartoons. To this day I enjoy the scenes of Pluto envisioning himself as a circus performer.
