Bosko is having a grand time on the farm. He dances with a cow and laughs when the cow's "pants" fall down, revealing polka-dotted underwear. He plays a horse's tail like a violin. The horse enjoys the music and dances to it eccentrically, even making like an ice skater at one point. Three ducklings and their mother enjoy the music, too, and dance along. Bosko feeds his pigs by dumping a trash can into their trough. The two baby pigs find a bottle of booze in the trough. They and their father all get drunk on it. The father accidentally flings the bottle away from himself, and it breaks against Bosko's head. Bosko, soaked in booze, is now drunk, too. Written by J. Spurlin

comedy loves booze
14 November 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Bosko, the very first Looney Tunes star, appeared in Warner Bros. cartoons from 1930 to 1933, when his creators moved to MGM (they continued making cartoons featuring him until 1938, after which he faded into obscurity). "The Booze Hangs High" was one outing for the high-voiced character, showing him dancing around with some farm animals and playing them like musical instruments. The menagerie includes some inebriated pigs (and this cartoon got released during Prohibition!).

Drunkenness is quite often a source of humor. Cartoons occasionally depict a besotted stork delivering babies. "The Andy Griffith Show" had Otis. It seems like it's only been during the past twenty years (approximately) that alcoholism became socially unacceptable. I assume that most people would consider it such, despite its continued existence.

Anyway, this is an OK cartoon, despite the limited plot line.
