Reviews and Comments

From Nikki :

Who would have thought that one package could cause one dog so much trouble. Well I guess if there was a turtle in it that might make things a little more difficult. The turtle in Pluto's package seems to have a mind of its own and doesn't seem to notice Pluto's efforts at the beginning to get the turtle in the bargain. After saving the turtle's life a couple of times the loyal dog and the turtle reach an understanding and head off into the sunset.

From Baruch Weiss :

This short was kind of cute. The turtle seems similar from two other previously released shorts titled Canine Patrol and Pluto's Housewarming. The scene where the turtle hides in his shell and wags his tale was really cute!
