Welcome to my original Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post! Special thanks goes to my great friend Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, the Disney site where you learn that Disney IS school! She asked her readers what they wanted to see on Tuesdays, and they had a resounding “Trivia!” answer for her! I don’t know a whole lot of trivia, Disney or otherwise, but I do have two incredibly cool Disney Trivia books that I will reference for these posts! The first one is “Disney Trivia from the Vault” by Dave Smith, and the other book is “The Walt Disney World Trivia, Volume Two“, by Lou Mongello. So, on to today’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia!
I have always thought of Pluto as Mickey’s dog; I always thought this because Pluto’s dog house was at Mickey’s Country House in Mickey’s Toontown Fair. Did you know, though, that when Pluto made his debut in the cartoon The Chain Gang, he didn’t belong to anyone. He was a bloodhound that was searching for Mickey Mouse, who had escaped from prison!
In his second cartoon, called The Picnic, Pluto actually belonged to Minnie Mouse! However, he was known in this cartoon as Rover, not Pluto.
Finally, in his third cartoon, The Moose Hunt, Pluto was the dog of Mickey Mouse, and he has been ever since.
This information is from Dave Smith’s book, Disney Trivia from the Vault.
Here is a YouTube video of The Moose Hunt. Enjoy!
