->''"Kiss me."''
-->--One of two lines ever spoken by Pluto, from "The Moose Hunt".

->''"Mammy!"''
-->--The second of two lines ever spoken by Pluto, from "Mickey Steps Out"--although it's technically a shout out to ''Film/TheJazzSinger''.

'''''Pluto The Pup''''' is an animated cartoon character from the Creator/WaltDisney cartoon studio, the loyal pet of MickeyMouse and, for a while, the star of his own series of short subjects during TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation. At one point, he even overshadowed the mouse in his own cartoons. He is notable for being one of the few recurring classic Disney animal characters who is not anthropomorphized.

He acted as a foil for WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck, {{Figaro}}, Butch the Bulldog, WesternAnimation/ChipAndDale, and sometimes Salty the Seal and Milton the cat. He also occasionally has a LoveInterest in the forms of Fifi the Pekingese in the 1930s and Dinah the dachshund in the 1940s and '50s. In some comic stories he is also the official mascot for the [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Junior Woodchucks.]]

For a full history of the character, go [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pluto_(Disney) here.]]

Oh yes, and don't confuse him with the former Planet, [[Manga/AstroBoy that other Pluto]], [[ClassicalMythology the god also known as Hades]], and ''especially'' not that {{Pluto}}. And no, [[PlutoIsExpendable he is not expendable.]] (Though he sure is [[TheChewToy treated that way]])

------------
!!Tropes:

* BalloonBelly: In "Plutopia".
* BigFriendlyDog: Most of the time. He has a temper and an occasional selfish streak, but is loyal to Mickey and has more limits in his Jerkass tendencies than, say, Donald.
* BreakoutCharacter: Yes, even Pluto was more popular than MickeyMouse at some point. Poor rodent can't catch a break, can he?
* ButtMonkey: On occasion, but especially later on in many shorts. Sometimes, like in "PlutosJudgementDay," it went too far.
* TheCameo: Pluto makes a brief appearance in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' episode "Rainy Days".
** He also makes an appearance in the {{Goofy}} short "Victory Vehicles", a WartimeCartoon. This cartoon shows alternate modes of transportation (since gas and rubber were rationed). One vehicle is powered by a dog (hence, Pluto) that chases after a cat (a scraggly-looking black cat that bears a passing resemblance to Figaro), when it's put front of him.
* CatsAreMean: If "PlutosJudgementDay" is any indication. The same goes somewhat with the dog's run-ins with Figaro.
* CharacterFocus: After Mickey's {{Flanderization}}, Pluto pretty much became the star of Mickey's cartoons.
* ChasteToons: Averted. Pluto has five puppies in "Pluto's Quin-Puplets" and a son named Pluto Jr.
* TheChewToy
* DerangedAnimation: "Plutopia", which was infamous enough to get a {{Homage}} in ''VideoGame/EpicMickey''.
* DisneyAcidSequence: "Plutopia".
* FireAndBrimstoneHell: In "Pluto's Judgement Day".
* FunnyAnimal: Oddly portrayed as one in the B&W cartoon, "Blue Rhythm."
* FurryConfusion: An age old question which has plagued mankind since the 30's; how can Pluto and {{WesternAnimation/Goofy}} share the same universe, if Goofy is also (allegedly) a dog?
** Not just that, but how can a mouse, even [[RodentsOfUnusualSize a giant]] [[AnimalsNotToScale housecat-sized one]] like Mickey, own a dog?
** The most common answer to the former question is that Goofy is to Pluto what a human is to a chimpanzee.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Pluto's become recurring characters in the shorts.
* HypnoFool: DonaldDuck hypnotizes Pluto into acting like a bunch of different animals on command in "The Eyes Have It".
* {{Jerkass}}: It shows up, but not as much as in Donald.
* LoveInterest: He has ''two'' of these: first, Fifi the Pekingese in the 1930s, and then, Dinah the dachshund in the 1940s and '50s.
* LoveTriangle: The main plot of "Pluto's Heart Throb", in which he and Butch vie for the affections of Dinah.
* OutOfFocus: Thus far, he's only made one appearance in the newest ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse'' series from 2013, and then only very briefly.
* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: A year prior to Pluto getting his own individual shorts, one SillySymphonies cartoon, "Mother Pluto", was centered entirely around him, having virtually nothing in common with the typical Silly Symphonies short.
* StalkerWithACrush: Occasionally displayed towards Dinah, such as in "Canine Casanova".
* StrictlyFormula: ''Many'' of the shorts are centered around Pluto either befriending another animal or becoming an enemy of another animal, with the gags ensueing from his botched attempts to deal with them--sometimes a combo of both is used.
* ThroughAFaceFullOfFur: In "The Army Mascot", Pluto turns green after swallowing a plug of chewing tobacco. He tries to swallow the green away, but it just comes back up. He then turns other colors as well, including, yes, plaid. Even his tongue!
** In cartoons that are set in some snowy region, such as "Alpine Climbers" and "Mail Dog", there are instances when Pluto gets so cold he turns blue.
* TheVoiceless[=/=]TheSpeechless: Sans his sole words in "The Moose Hunt" and "Mickey Steps Out", unless you count barking as dog talk. Occasionally, he would make panting sounds that sound similar to "yeah, yeah!"
** Hilariously lampshaded in the 50's-era Magazine/{{MAD}} spoof "Mickey Rodent" in which [[ParodyNames Pluted Pup]] laments being the only animal in the Walt Dizzy universe who can't talk, by way of [[TalkingWithSigns holding up signs]].
** In Mickey's last black and white short, "Mickey's Kangaroo", the viewers get to hear what Pluto's thinking throughout the short.
* WhiteGloves: Shown wearing them in the B&W cartoon, "Blue Rhythm."
