Pluto's Party is an animated short starring Mickey Mouse and Pluto.


It's Pluto's birthday and Mickey Mouse is busy preparing the party things for his birthday dog, Pluto. First, Pluto tries to eat the cake, but is caught by his master, Mickey Mouse, when it is time for his bath. As soon as Pluto is looking more neat and tidy, he tries to eat the cake but then gets spotted by his master again. Then, Mickey's nephews barge the gate down and trample all over Pluto as they hurry to the party. The children give Pluto a small red wagon and treat him like a workhorse. They then all start to enjoy themselves at the party. They first take Pluto on the slide, then barge down the swing. Then, they play pin the tail on Pluto to see who can pin Pluto's tail. Soon it is time for lunch and Pluto wants to have a piece of his own cake, but Mickey's nephews prefer to amuse themselves by grabbing every slice of cake and eating it up, much to Pluto's horror. Eventually, they devour Pluto's birthday cake and leave. Pluto, understandably upset at the abuse Mickey's nephews have given him and Mickey's unusual cruelty, angrily throws a hissy fit, knocking away all the dishes until Mickey passes him the last slice of the birthday cake he saved. Pluto happily eats the cake, licking Mickey between bites to show his gratitude.

The following scenes were deleted from the short release due to time constraints:

  • Pluto taking his name sign off of his doghouse and putting it on the table with his dish.
  • The entire scene of Mickey bathing Pluto.
  • Pluto sniffing his huge bone-shaped present, then licking all the kids who gave it to him.
  • Pluto sliding across the table is shortened to remove him reaching out to the cake and Mickey becoming shocked as this happens, before lifting it up out of his way.
  • Everything between Pluto being airborne from sliding down the slide and the kids at the table, including:
    • Pluto being passed by the kids on the swing like a trapeze.
    • Pluto launched airborne again from the seesaw when the kids land on the other end.
    • Mickey yelling at Pluto to come back down, which he does, crashing and making a dog-shaped implant in the ground as he does, and Mickey berating Pluto for playing too rough.
    • The entire "pin the tail on Pluto" game scene.
  • The kids eating and swallowing the cake and then drinking the punch before they all leave.


  • This is the first cartoon where Pluto would only appear in the last three Mickey Mouse cartoons, as Cold Turkey was the last in the Pluto series. The two would reappear again in two more cartoons; "Pluto's Christmas Tree" (released in 1952) and "The Simple Things" (released in 1953) before being retired from theatrical cartoons in 1953.
    • In these final three Mickey Mouse cartoons, Mickey receives a redesign where he was given eyebrows, which would continue to be seen on Mickey's face until the late-1980s and rarely in the early-1990s, until being removed altogether.
  • The children do native war cries before playing pin the tail. Though there is little hearable dialogue of the war cry, it can briefly be heard.
  • Huey, Dewey and Louie (Donald Duck's nephews) were briefly mentioned only by Mickey as one of the party guests at the beginning, but are never seen or heard.
    • Interestingly, this cartoon appeared on the international VHS release Donald and Company released in the mid-1990s, despite Donald Duck not appearing in this cartoon at all.
