First shown in its original English dub in January of 2000 and rarely aired since was a short from Mickey Mouse Works titled "Minnie Takes Care of Pluto" (originally shown as part of the 16th episode of the series, which served as the third episode of season 2); the short caused controversy due to its disturbing themes and was barred from re-airing in the US shortly following its debut. It was one of two segments from Mickey Mouse Works to not be put into an episode of House of Mouse.[1]

Plot

The short sees Pluto being abruptly left at Minnie's house for the day, and after Minnie goes on a short rant to him, he starts believing that she is out to kill him. Throughout the short, Pluto is both spurred on and consoled by his inner devil and angel respectively, leading Pluto to go from refusing to eat food he believes is poisoned to outright trying (and failing quite miserably) to kill Minnie before she does him, which results in Pluto being knocked out and taking an imaginary journey to hell and back.

Banning

The short garnered a significant amount of complaints due to the nature of the short and, as such, was pulled from being aired in the US indefinitely, though it continued airing infrequently in a number of other countries, sometimes in its original dub.

Availability

In the decade following, several foreign rips of the short began appearing online, though the English audio remained totally unaccounted for until October 9th, 2013, when Youtuber "bumbumdbear" uploaded a low-quality rip of the original English dub, cited as being sourced from Disney Channel Asia circa 2010.

Since that upload, multiple users spliced the English audio with the Polish rip's higher quality video and, ultimately, a version of the short with high-quality English audio was uploaded to Youtube by PSHQ on December 10th, 2016.

Now, what about the other short from the Mickey Mouse Works series that did made to House of Mouse called "Pluto Gets The Paper: Vending Machine"? Is it considered lost?

I contacted the person who uploaded the HQ version of "Minnie Takes Care of Pluto", and asked him if he had "Pluto Gets the Paper: Vending Machine", and he did!

Wow, I only saw a Russian(?) version of that cartoon.

It didn't have any subtitles like the video you shared.
