Pluto (formally Pluto the Pup) is a well known character from The Walt Disney Company. Pluto is most frequently appeared as Mickey Mouse's dog. Pluto is a very unusual character in The Walt Disney Company merchandise because he is not anthropomorphized beyond showing an unusually broad range of facial expressions; he is actually refered to as a fictional normal dog. His birthday is September 5, 1930.

To the point, what Pluto truly is, is a well trained dog. Like his master Mickey Mouse, he can get into trouble, but is smart enough to escape the situation. He acts as Mickey's sidekick, best friend, conscience in some occasions and pet. The pup is extremely loyal but can sometimes be mischeavious with others.

He strongly dislikes cats. Despite being intelligent, Pluto can be a bit clumsy and his childlike persona is often mistaken for stupidity. He's not immune to being outwitted but can get back on track which is usually bad news being that Pluto can have a nasty temper. He has two consciences. One evil (which is Pluto's devil counterpart) and one good (which is Pluto's angel counterpart). Usually, Pluto listens to the demon at first, but in the end, he usually listens to the angel.

The pup has an a-list life. A good home, family, and the greatest owner for his type. His pal Mickey has always been Pluto’s best friend.


Pluto first appeared in the 1930 Mickey Mouse cartoon The Chain Gang as a bloodhound on the trail of escaped prisoner Mickey Mouse. Pluto was originally named Rover, but his name eventually changed to Pluto. Pluto is also considered one of the ‘Sensational Six’ Disney characters alongside Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck. Pluto is one of the first cartoon characters that is actually shown to have thought processes through the use of character animation. His thought processes are showcased in a landmark scene from 1934's Playful Pluto, in which Pluto becomes stuck to a piece of flypaper and attempts to figure out a way to get himself unstuck.

It's obvious that Pluto is sometimes titled as "Mickey's Pal Pluto" (which is also the title of a 1933 cartoon), for this dog shows love to his master. Even though he's been known to run in the opposite direction when confronted by something frightening, Pluto is protective of Mickey. In many cartoons, Pluto tried his very best to assist his owner, and nothing made the happy hound happier, even if their plans did not always turn out as expected. In Puppy Love (1933) we saw Pluto accompanying Mickey on a romantic visit to Minnie; in Playful Pluto (1934) the pooch tries to help out with spring cleaning; and in On Ice (1935), the curious canine was out for a day of ice-skating, even though in Pluto's case it is thanks to two pairs of skates attached to his paws by Donald Duck.

Most people took the loose-limbed hound to heart that, even as continued to co-star in many of Mickey Mouse's films, he was given his own series of cartoons as the main character, starting with Pluto's Quinpuplets (1937), but even before that, he became the only Disney standard character to star in his own ‘Silly Symphony’, Mother Pluto (1936). Pluto has a veritable kennel-full of supporting players, including his enemy Butch the Bulldog, and his two canine sweethearts Fifi the Pekingese and Dinah the Dachshund. Interestingly, in Pluto's Quinpuplets (1937), Pluto and Fifi are nicknamed "Mr. And Mrs. Pluto" due to being the parents of five mischievous mutts. Pluto is also seen as the father of a pup in Pluto Junior (1942), as well as the big brother of a little dog in Pluto's Kid Brother (1946). In films such as First Aiders (1944), Pluto has been teamed with Figaro the feisty feline from Pinocchio (1940), whose annoying antics gets the easily frustrated pooch's hairs up. A definite highlight for the humble hound was Lend a Paw (1941) because the episode was awarded the Oscar® for ‘Best Cartoon of the Year’. In this episode, he gets blamed for making a mess in Mickey’s house due to his devil consience, in the end, he saved Mickey’s kitten and he got rewarded due to his angel consience.


Mickey Mouse Club

Pluto appeared in the opening theme for the 1950s television series. As Mickey and the gang perform the song, Pluto creates music with the use of his drums even having a solo.

House of Mouse

Pluto once again stars in the series House of Mouse as the official mascot. A notable Pluto episode is Pluto Saves the Day in which Pluto feels unappreciated and becomes a hero after Pete poisons everyone with the Witch's poisoned apple. Despite being part of the main cast, Pluto usually only makes appearances in most episodes not revolving around him. Pluto was in another episode Pluto vs. Figaro. Pluto need a helper Figaro, Minnie's kitten, after Minnie thinks Pluto is had enough to work so hard.

Pluto also appears in Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse, where he tries to help Donald Duck get into the spirit of Christmas. In the film Mickey's'' House of Villains, Pluto only appears in the cartoon scene Mickey's Mechanical House, but does not appear for the rest of the film. '

Quack Pack

Pluto had a brief cameo appearance in the first episode of Quack Pack.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

Pluto reappears as a main character in the computer animated series Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Pluto joins in almost every adventure that Mickey Mouse and his friends set off on and helps out the gang by solving many puzzling problems. While being apart of the main cast, Pluto's role is often supporting and adding comic relief instead of esculating the episode's plot like the other characters.

Several episodes revolved around Pluto such as Pluto's Best where he competes with his long time rival Butch the Bulldog and others like Pluto's Puppysitting Adventure which has Pluto and Mickey babysitting Clarabelle's puppy Bella. Pluto's most important role in the series is Mickey's sidekick joining him on most adventures and seen with Mickey more than all other characters.

Later film appearances

Kingdom Hearts Series 

Pluto is King Mickey's (Mickey Mouse’s) loyal pet dog and also appears to be a mail messenger for him in some of the Kingdom Hearts games. Pluto has appeared in all the games released so far safe Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

Pluto makes a brief cameo in Terra's story as he enters Disney Town. He also appears beside Queen Minnie when Aqua visits Disney Town, as well. During Aqua's storyline, Pluto barked when he said goodbye to Aqua in the flashbacks with Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Horace Horsecollar, Chip 'n' Dale, and Huey, Dewey and Louie. During the credits, Pluto watched Huey, Dewey, Louie, Horace Horsecollar and Queen Minnie having a car race.

Kingdom Hearts

Pluto has a minor role in Kingdom Hearts but a notable one. Pluto is first seen by The King’s throne in Disney Castle in front of Donald with a letter from The King, who has gone missing (he has actually gone off to fight the Heartless). Pluto later is seen sleeping during the conversation between Queen Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Daisy Duck and Jiminy Cricket about what they should do about the situation. Donald, Goofy and Jiminy are sent to locate the King and the Keyblade Master. Pluto hops into the Gummi Ship at the last moment as it departs.

In Traverse Town, the trio witness the disappearance of a star (representing Destiny Islands) and rush off to find Leon. Pluto wanders off into an alley way, being the first Disney character to discover Sora, who Pluto wakes up with a lick and a sudden shove. Sora asks Pluto where they are, but Pluto seems to hear something and rushes off. But unexpectedly, he disappears for the rest of the game, although it is possible he reunited with King Mickey - since he appears suddenly after the end-credits carrying a letter with the King's seal. Sora, Donald and Goofy chase him over the hills and into Castle Oblivion.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

Pluto has a brief appearance in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories at the very beginning. Sora, Donald and Goofy spot that he is holding a letter with the King's seal on it. Sora, Donald and Goofy chase Pluto over the hills and into Castle Oblivion. However, it appears they lost track of him or gave up due to it being night. But then, after that, he doesn’t appear for the rest of the game. It is possible that Namine made a fake ‘memory’ out of Pluto to lure Sora and company to Castle Oblivion.

Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories

It is pretty much the same story as in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, except this time, Pluto also appears as an exclusive friend card. Pluto's main ability is to dig up items such as HP orbs, Moogle points, and even cards for Sora to reuse in battle after using a sleight. When sleighted in two's and three's, the Pluto cards create a sleight called Lucky Bounty (Lucky Bounty Lv2/Lucky Bounty Lv3). Lucky Bounty Lv3 digs up an amazing amount of items for Sora. The best thing about the Pluto friend card is that it doesn't take up a slot in Sora's three friend limit. The worst thing is that it is uncommon to find. It can only be found in specific boss battles. Be sure to save one if you do find it and stock up to Lv3. Lv3 Lucky Bounty gives out better cards. Be aware that the cards dug up during Lucky Bounty disappear after the battle. Pluto may even dig up Item cards you used, ready to be used again. Sadly, he may also dig up a bone which causes damage to Sora.

Kingdom Hearts II

Pluto returns in Kingdom Hearts II, but oddly in The World That Never Was for unknown reasons, although he seems to be stocking on Axel. He chases Axel into an alley, but loses him once he enters a Corridor of Darkness, but a hidden Riku opens another one up for him. Pluto arrives on Destiny Islands just in time to prevent Kairi from going with Axel. Pluto and Kairi escape into Twilight Town where they meet Hayner, Pence, and Olette. Axel soon suddenly reappears and kidnaps Kairi, and Pluto chases after them.

Pluto and Kairi end up imprisoned in a cell in the Castle That Never Was by Saix. They are rescued by Naminé and escape in a dark corridor. They are soon confronted by Saïx, but Riku suddenly appears in his disguise as ‘Ansem’ (Xehanort's Heartless) and chases him off. As Riku is about to leave, Pluto blocks his path and moves Riku in the direction of Kairi. Riku lets Kairi remove his hood. But then, Pluto disappears until the defeat of Xemnas, leaping into a corridor made by Naminé which leads to Destiny Islands. Despite the fact that Kairi, Donald, Goofy, King Mickey and Pluto passed through the portal to the islands, Pluto was not there when Sora and Riku returned. Although, Pluto is seen in the end credits with Huey, Dewey, Louie, Scrooge McDuck, Donald, Goofy and King Mickey when they return to Disney Castle.

Kingdom Hearts: Coded

Pluto first appeared in Episode 2 (Traverse Town) almost like in the first game except when Sora fixes Traverse Town's Bug Block Corruption and the Journal shows everyone in Disney Castle's computer the message "Their torment has been lessened" and a scene is shown, from the first game, where Sora, Donald, and Goofy first meet, but then, the scene moves northwest to show Pluto in the background sniffing and running into a Corridor of Darkness.
