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 <>

Worth a one-time watch but not enough for repeat viewings
7 April 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Bosko cartoons may not be animation masterpieces, but they are fascinating as examples of Looney Tunes in their early days before the creation of more compelling characters and funnier and more creative cartoons.

While there are better Bosko cartoons, there are also worse. 'Bosko's Holiday' is watchable, but only just a little above average, so as far as Bosko cartoons go in ranking it's somewhere in the middle. As ever with a Bosko cartoon, the story is slight, would actually agree that it's even more slight and more generic than usual. There are some inventive gags here, but they don't come consistently and others are forgettable and tired in timing.

Another issue is Bosko himself, not an interesting character and not a particularly endearing one either. Honey is not a great character either, but fares better, having some charm and not being annoying. Pacing has its slow spots too.

On the other hand, the animation is not bad at all. Not exactly refined but fluid and crisp enough with some nice detail, it is especially good in the meticulous backgrounds and some remarkably flexible yet natural movements for Bosko. The music doesn't disappoint either, its infectious energy, rousing merriment, lush orchestration and how well it fits with the animation is just a joy.

As aforementioned, some of the gags are quite inventive, like the beginning gag, the part with the doghouse and the car and the ending.

In conclusion, a one-time watch but will never be a favourite any time soon. 6/10 Bethany Cox
