Indexer Notes

Pages consist of 1-3 panels each. In this story, Pluto and Pluto Junior exist in a world of realistically-rendered humans, including a human lady master taking the place of Pluto's usual owner Mickey Mouse. Oddly, not a single human face is seen over the course of the entire story. All human faces are cut-off by the panel borders, or conveniently covered by dialogue balloons.
