Storyline

Bosko joins a wacky fox hunt. One of the hunters is an elephant, who is riding on a horse to be pitied. One of the hounds is a dachshund. Bosko's own horse must be made to swallow a log in order to keep his midsection from drooping to the ground. Meanwhile, the fox is utterly unconcerned. He lopes along, crossing the pond by stepping on the stones, and then using the floating logs as rafts. Eventually, Bosko's horse abandons his owner; but an overly friendly hound steps in to bring Bosko to his quarry. Both of them find more than they bargained for. Written by J. Spurlin

Bosko goes hunting for a fox and brings home a dog.
25 September 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

An average Bosko short notable for basically one thing-Bosko's dog Bruno comes onto the scene. The short is largely unmemorable otherwise. I will discuss this in a little detail, but not much, so this is a mini-spoiler warning:

When it comes to fox hunting, my sympathies are wholly with the fox, so the fact that the fox more or less makes the hunters look silly doesn't disturb me in the least. Bosko is Bosko, so he does one or two odd things with (and to) his horse. He and the horse wind up in the mud, courtesy of the fox. Enter Bruno, who tries to help Bosko catch the fox. There are some fun gags with Bruno and a nice bit where Bosko winds up becoming quarry rather than hunter. The ending may be the best gag in the whole short.

This is a decent enough cartoon, though it isn't anything special. Hopefully, it will wind up on a future Looney Tunes Golden Collection. Worth watching at least once.
