Attorney at Law, Harvey Birdman, has filed suit against the International Astronomical Union (IAU) on behalf of his client, Pluto, for claiming that Pluto is no longer a planet. Through his interpreter at a press conference Pluto stated "being considered a planet was the one thing I had over Goofy but that's been maliciously and arbitrarily taken away. I feel violated".
In papers filed with California's 9th Circuit Pluto claims the defamation of his character by the IAU has affected his ability to find work. Pluto claims he was supposed to get the lead role in Disney's "Underdog" movie but Disney executives decided to go "another direction" after the IAU's landmark decision.
Pluto's therapist, Dr. Katz, says "It's always been rough for Pluto. Not only are Pluto and Goofy both dogs but Goofy gets to wear clothes, drive cars and even speak while Pluto walks around on all fours and wears nothing but a collar. It's humiliating and degrading".
In response; IAU spokesperson, Lola Bunny, claims "How could our decision affect his ability to find work when he hasn't even been featured in a movie since 1952's 'Pluto's Christmas Tree'. Besides, not only is Pluto not a planet he's not even a REAL DOG and Goofy's the better actor anyway".
