Private Pluto is a Pluto cartoon released on April 2, 1943. In this cartoon, Pluto is in the army and he gets antagonized by Chip & Dale. The cartoon marks the first appearance of Chip & Dale.


This short showcases Pluto as a soldier. Pluto is a guard dog on a military base. He's told there are saboteurs, and is assigned to guard a pill-box (gun emplacement). First, Pluto tries to follow marching orders, contorting himself into quite a mess. Then, he engages in hijinks with Chip and Dale who are using a cannon to store and crack their nuts, and a war of wits naturally ensues.



  • The Pluto VHS release of the cartoon uses the original opening and closing titles, while the remastered DVD version of the cartoon uses the reissue opening and closing titles.
