Bosko is a Mountie in the cold, snowy north. His sergeant demands that he get his man: a peg-legged villain wanted dead or alive. Bosko rides his dog sled to the local saloon. He joins Honey in some impromptu music-making. The villain strides in; Bosko timidly tells him he's under arrest. The villain only laughs at him; but Bosko will get the last laugh. Written by J. Spurlin

An Enjoyable Early Cartoon From WB, But Not One Of The Best...
12 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of people will be quick to discard this cartoon in favor of another cartoon set in the north, made by Disney a year later called "The Klondike Kid." And even more people will be quick to discard all Bosko cartoons in favor of Mickey Mouse. While Mickey Mouse has more personality in an index finger than Bosko, this has to be one of the best cartoons made by Warner Brothers before 1935. Synchronization is uniformly superb, and this one actually has a little plot, though nothing major. If you want an old 1930s cartoon, and you have a little patience, watch this one. This film runs about seven minutes, it was Drawn by future animation director Isadore 'Friz' Freleng, and Robert Edmunds, and the musical score is provided by Frank Marsales. The print available on the DVD compilation 'Uncensored Bosko Volume One' is a little scratchy, and a re-issue, but is ten times better than any Chaplin Keystone comedy in the public domain, take my word for it.
