Despite Minnie telling him not to, Pluto chases after a pesky gopher. When Pluto digs up Minnie’s garden and wreaks her house in the process, he finds himself in Minnie’s doghouse.

Figaro and Frankie

The Nifty Nineties
Mickey and Minnie attend an old-time vaudeville show, and later get on a horse-drawn carriage, riding alongside Goofy and Donald. When the carriage goes out of control, Mickey and Minnie end their romantic evening in a cow pasture.

Pluto’s Sweater
Minnie knits Pluto a sweater that he doesn’t like, and Pluto hilariously tries everything he can to take it off. When the sweater gets wet and shrinks in size, he pawns it off on Figaro the cat.

Mickey’s Delayed Date
Minnie phones Mickey from a party and tells him to hurry up and get there. Pluto helps Mickey get into his tux, but the two of them have trouble with a trash can along the way. Mickey’s tux gets torn up, but he finds that Minnie likes him anyway.
