This early episode of TV's Disneyland anthology was essentially a glorified promotional trailer for Walt Disney's upcoming animated theatrical feature Lady and the Tramp. Shown hard at work on the project at the Disney studio were supervising director Clyde Geronomi, animation director Wolfgang Reitherman, directing animators Milt Kahl and Frank Thomas, and story man Erdman Penner. In keeping with the "dog" motif of this segment, the remainder of the episode was devoted to the "life story" of Mickey Mouse's pet mutt Pluto, from his debut as a nondescript bloodhound in the 1931 cartoon short The Chain Gang to his own starring series in the 1940s and 1950s.
