early Friz, 3 July 2007
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

Before Warner Bros.'s animation department gave us Bugs, Daffy, Porky, etc., their most famous star was a small, strange character named Bosko; I think that he looks like a black-face performer. In "Hold Anything", Bosko is participating in construction, when he suddenly gets infatuated with Honey.

Mostly, I take little interest in WB's early 1930s cartoons. But I noticed that the credits said "Drawn by Isadore Freleng". Hardcore fans probably know that Isadore was Friz Freleng, later one of the animation department's top directors. Obviously, he had to start somewhere, and this wasn't a bad place. Worth seeing, and available on YouTube.
