Pluto first appeared in Walt Disney’s 1930 film The Chain Gang as a tracker dog but later as Mickey’s pet, forging one of the most famous friendships in animated history. As he doesn’t speak, Pluto’s performance replies on physical humour and his temperament has endeared him to many. Pluto went on to appear in 48 cartoons, and won an ACADEMY AWARD ® in 1942.
