Vintage Walt Disney World: Love Your Pet (Sidekick)

posted on February 20th, 2014 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center

Mickey has Pluto. Aladdin has Abu. Lilo has Stich. It’s Love Your Pet Day so be sure to send some extra love to your pet of choice (dog, monkey, alien, etc.) today. Here’s a look at Pluto helping out his loyal owner Mickey Mouse with all of his fan mail back in 1988.

Duffy the Disney Bear is definitely my sidekick of choice!

Pegasus, definitely!

Great choice!

I’m not home enough to have a pet, but if I was, I’d want a dog as loyal as Pluto! That Mickey is a lucky mouse!!!

He’s very lucky!

I’d love to have my very own Meeko or Pascal – I imagine they’d both be super fun to have around!


Jamie on February 20th, 2014 at 2:46 pm

Pascal hands down. I love his attitude!

For a pet, I’d like either Morphy from Treasure Planet, because a shape-shifting flying blob would be awesome, or Mole from Atlantis: The Lost Empire (he counts, right? *wink*).

I definitely want PLUTO as my pet!! PLUTO is totally committed to Mickey and the gang: PLUTO continually delivers UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, is always HAPPY to be with Mickey and pals, and, is totally TRUSTWORTHY!!! You bet, I want PLUTO as my Pet!!!!

I just met you, and I love you.
I would choose the lovable DUG from “UP”.

I would love Meeko or the hyenas if I was a villain!!
