Storyline

Bosko is a soda jerk (in more ways than one), happily whistling as he makes ice cream sodas. Bosko serves a mouse such a big soda that the only way the mouse can reach the straw is to spin his stool as high as it will go. Good service. But later, Bosko breaks his mixer and, by twisting the rodent's tail to make his head turn around, uses the mouse customer as a replacement. Bosko's former schoolteacher comes in for a soda. She's enjoying the rotating electric fan; but when Bosko puts the ice cream soda on the counter, the fan blows it in her face. Bosko only laughs at her. Honey calls and asks Bosko to bring an ice cream cone for her bratty kitten pupil. The delivery proves to be more of a trial than Bosko had expected. Written by J. Spurlin

The action in this animated short is so disjointed and bizarre . . .
29 December 2016 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. that there's really no other way to take BOSKO'S SODA FOUNTAIN other than as a allegorical prophecy on the part of Warner Bros.' Animated Shorts Seers division, those always uncannily accurate Looney Tunes prognosticators particularly apt at predicting 21st Century America's upcoming Calamities, Catastrophes, Cataclysms, and Apocalypti. In this particular offering, Bosko appears to be minding his own business behind the soda fountain. Since everything is in order, he's obviously meant to represent U.S. President Obama, fixing Health Care, saving the Auto Industry, and rescuing a failing economy destroyed by W. (for "weasel?") Bush and his Evil Henchmen. (A story in the Dec. 28, 2016 USA TODAY noted that the cost of W.'s phony baloney Iraq war is now up to $6 trillion, not to mention 5,000-plus murdered U.S. troops and one million slaughtered Iraqis; Obama had to clean up THAT mess for W. too, of course.) Then a hippo lady with patched white panties barges into Bosko's shop, symbolizing Hillary's brazen plan to take over for Barack (as the hippo lady begins fiddling with things, such as the shop's fan, with counter-productive results: it turns into a private ice cream server!). Meanwhile, a wiener dog waltzes in--representing the Rich People Party (RPP) Congress with which Barack is saddled--and swallows up all the meat links in the store, just as the RPP gorged by eating up Obama's U.S. Supreme Court Pick, Asian Trade Deal, Clean Air Treaty, Minimum Wage Increase, Banking Industry Fixes, Great Cyber Walls against Russian Election Hacking, and most of the other key parts of Barack's potential Legacy. Finally, Bosko's gal Honey (a dead ringer for Rump's mouthpiece Kelly Anne Conway) calls to order an ice cream cone for the thirteen-year-old stuck in a grown man's body, Rump (drawn here as an actual child, since America's National Censor Board would NOT allow Warner Bros. staff to illustrate the activity of a self-confessed serial finger rapist in the 1930s!). Honey's kid- sized Rump ends up smashing the ice cream into Obama\Bosko's face, and then gives him a gratuitous beating. Woe to America for tolerating Election Loser (by 3 million votes!) Rump, Warner warns us.
