Bosko's phone is ringing, very insistently, with help from the alarm clock. Finally, they get Bosko out of bed; it's his girlfriend, suggesting a picnic. He drives over to her place. They are pursued by a pesky little dog, who chomps on one of the tires and fills with air, but Bosko uses cartoon repair techniques to get the car going again. Bosko eats a sandwich, very loudly, but his girl has other plans. Written by Jon Reeves <>

Even less plot than usual in this generic-label Bosko cartoon
9 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bosko's telephone can't get its owner to wake up no matter how insistently it rings. The phone beats the alarm clock (also sleeping) with its receiver and orders it to wake up their owner. The panicky clock can't get him up either -- not by its own ringing nor by hitting a brush against his bedpan. In desperation, the clock stabs Bosko in the rear with its hand. Bosko wakes up screaming, and sleepily answers the phone. It's Honey. She wants to go on a picnic.

Bosko cranks up the car, sends home the little baby cars that try to follow and drives to her place. Soon the two sweethearts are off to the woods. Bosko easily fixes a tire that his dog bit a hole in. He has less luck winning Honey's forgiveness after whispering an ungentlemanly suggestion in her ear.

"Bosko's Holiday" has even less plot than usual. There isn't even the usual calamity to provide excitement. The gags are crude and rude: at one point, Bosko tries to make Honey hungry by chewing noisily with his mouth open. The short is further undermined by later entries that have scenes and gags nearly identical to this one. The film feels like a generic-label Bosko cartoon.
