Storyline

The same father-son coyotes seen in Camp Dog (1950) sneak into the hen-house that Pluto is guarding. A chicken yawns, putting junior to sleep, so dad comes in. Pluto wakes up and gives chase. The varmits hide in the rafters of Pluto's house, and it takes some time for him to notice. Pluto and father pass a chicken and its nest back and forth a few times before Pluto substitutes junior for the chicken, tricking dad. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Familiar but enormous fun especially with the coyotes
12 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As with a lot of Pluto shorts, the story is routine- basically Pluto vs another animal formula, which forms most of his shorts- and that is little to Pests of the West that is new, but with the amount of energy and fun that Pests of the West has this seems like a minor issue. You've seen the gags before, but because they're so imaginatively timed and cleverly animated-plus they were amusing gags in the first place- they still work very well and are funny. The animation is brightly coloured and very fluid, what is done with the characters' facial expressions and gestures is just as good. The music adds a lot, how it always matches so well with the visuals and humour in Disney(and other cartoons from other studios, WB's Looney Tunes being the best example) has been one of the Disney shorts' strengths but to hear music that has a lot of character and with the ability to be memorable and lushly scored is even more impressive. The crisp pacing and fun interplay between all three characters make up for the routineness of the story, and even then the story still entertains because it is a fun scenario in the first place and suits all three characters like a glove. Pluto hasn't lost his likability and he is fun to watch as well as being a well-meaning protector(Pests of the West uses him well and actually knows what to do with him). But he does play second fiddle to the coyotes and their conflict, because with their contrasting personalities and the great amount of visual comedy between them(this visual comedy is near-classic quality too) these two characters are an absolute joy. To conclude, enormously fun and easy to like, there's little new but what there is is still done really quite wonderfully. 9/10 Bethany Cox
