Reviews and Comments

From Sherrie :

This is one of my all-time favorite Pluto cartoons. It always makes me laugh, and I love the song "Lurkey Turkey" that plays in the background. Whenever Pluto and Milton get together, some pretty funny things can happen!

From Nikki :

Definitely one of the better Pluto shorts. Its full of gags after gags, from the TV to the garbage can to the cooler. These to just battle it out in hilarity.

From Ryan :

This short is okay, but it isn't one of my favorites. Seeing Pluto and Milton the cat fighting over the turkey gets rather tiring for me after awhile. They could have easily shared it since it was a whole turkey.

From Baruch Weiss :

Some nice music in this cartoon, but not one of my favorites. Pluto and Milton could have easily shared it (rather than trying pulling one out of the TV, which was really stupid) as it was a whole turkey. Although this short is not one of my favorites today, I used to enjoy it when me and my siblings were younger especially the lurkey turkeys jingle that went "Lurkeys Turkeys hot, lurkeys turkeys cold, lurkeys turkeys taste good nine days old."

From Dino Cencia :

When I saw that turkey on the TV, this cartoon made me hungry for that turkey!

From Jack :

First Pluto sees that the turkey is burning. Then Milton realises it and both bark and run into the TV. Also, they get out the turkey and blow it, but it turns black and melts, leaving the skeleton, which melts later. Pluto and Milton look at the ash sadly, until they find a bone, which melts. Pluto looks at Milton, pointing with his one paw the ash and with his other Milton. Then Milton looks Pluto confused.
