Butch the Bulldog is a character created by The Walt Disney Company in 1940. He appears mainly as Pluto's arch nemesis. Butch first appeared in the Pluto cartoon "Bone Trouble" where Pluto tried to steal his bone. Ever since then Butch has been antagonizing Pluto. Sometimes Butch competes with Pluto for the affections of Dinah the Dachshund. At one point, Butch even antagonized Figaro in the cartoon "Figaro and Frankie". Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Morty and Ferdie Fieldmouse, Hunky, Fifi the Peke, Ronnie the St. Bernard Puppy, and Figaro the kitten are all familiar with Butch. In the Disneyland episode "Donald's Award", he antagonized Donald Duck because of the cat puppet he uses to distract Pluto.

He is currently voiced by Frank Welker, who also voiced Reggie the bulldog in Lady and the Tramp II. It is unknown who originally voiced Butch in the classic shorts.


Mickey Mouse Works

Butch was featured in Pluto's cartoons as the main antagonist/obstacle Pluto would face. He was first seen in the cartoon "Pluto's Arrow Error" where he and Pluto compete for the love of Dinah the Dachshund.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

In the CGI series, Butch is revealed to be the pet of Pete and has brown fur in contrast to his gray fur from prior roles. Here, Butch is featured as Pete's closest friend and sidekick. He first appears in the episode "Pluto's Best" where he and Pluto competed in a dog show. Butch was later seen in the episode "Bubble Trouble" where he and Pete are making sandcastles when Mickey and Pluto arrive floating in bubbles. Pete and Butch use a beach towel to cover a nearby cactus to prevent them from falling. Also in this cartoon, Pete reveals that Butch is actually a Labrador. A picture of Butch and Pluto was seen in the episode "Mickey's Surprise Party" as a part of a puzzle.

  • Butch bares a strong ressemblance to Spike from Tom and Jerry and Hector from Sylvester and Tweety, but is less anthropomorphic than his two counterparts.
