Feb 18: Pluto To The Rescue

On this day in 1933, the Disney short Mickey's Pal Pluto (distributed by United Artists) was released. Running just under 8 minutes, the black & white short was directed by Burt Gillett.
After rescuing some kitten from a river, Pluto realizes the cute felines are getting all of Mickey's attention. While Pluto's bad jealous side is revealed ... his true nature eventually shines through when one of the kittens accidentally falls down a well.
Mickey's Pal Pluto was later remade in color as Lend a Paw ... and won an Oscar!
