Mickey's canine companion Pluto tries to woo Minnie's new dog, an attractive poodle called Fifi. Unfortunately for Pluto, Fifi is also courted by the brutish bulldog Butch. However, Pluto gets a chance to shine when he learns Fifi is bothered by a mean crow whom Butch, being strong but rather dumb, is helpless against.
Behind the scenesEdit
This story was first printed in May of 1953 in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #152. It was then reprinted in Mickey Mouse #310, and also in the Australian Mickey Mouse #3 and Giant #350.
INDUCKS mistakenly accounts for the Fifi featured in the story as being Fifi the Peke. While a similar character (being a female dog owned by Minnie Mouse whom Pluto attempts to woo), the Fifi in this story is a poodle, as opposed to a peke, and what's more, is explicitly a new acquisition of Minnie's — whereas Fifi the Peke is a longstanding pet of hers.
