Pluto Vs the Radio

Pluto hears a cat in his radio, so he jumps into the tinhorn to get it. That ends the radio, in The Barnyard Broadcast (1931).

Well, almost. The radio gets its revenge in the usual Disney butt-violation method.

The yelping Pluto then disappears from the cartoon. Why Disney and his story people didn’t have the dog run into the radio studio and chase the cat, I don’t know. Instead, Mickey runs after the animal with some unfunny gags (a broom splits a piano in half?) that, somehow, make me think of Tom Palmer’s short career at Warners.

There are no credits on this cartoon except Uncle Walt’s. I think he plays the cat in this.

  1. Hey, at least we get a Pre-Code "nipple" gag. (The Mick should have used the "Don't touch that dial!" line later denied Baby Bottleneck).
