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

Decent but you can see that Disney had nothing to fear from Looney Tunes at this point in time...
15 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The early star for the Looney Tunes cartoons from Warner Brothers was Bosco. I've seen a few of his films and still have no idea what the character is supposed to be--so I looked him up on Wikipedia. They indicate he's supposed to be a black young man. Regardless of who he is, these cartoons directed by the Harmon-Ising team tended to be rather cute and less edgy than many of their competitors. They weren't bad--they just weren't very good either. Not surprisingly, most folks today have never heard of the guy.

In this installment, much of the film is pretty bland and cute. However, there is fortunately a bit of potty humor (believe me, it needed it) and a portion at the end involving pigs drinking booze. Otherwise, there just isn't a lot of plot here and the cartoon is pretty forgettable. If you care, the animation was done by Friz Freleng--a guy who later directed many of the classic Looney Tunes shorts.
