Storyline

Bosko and Honey yodel happily in the Alps, but then disaster strikes. Bosko slides down a tree to meet Honey, but loses control and falls onto a pair of wooden planks that double as skis. Bosko knocks down Honey, who falls downhill in a snowball until she smashes into a rock and topples over a cliff. Bosko, on his runaway skis, hits the same rock and comes to sudden stop. Now Honey is rushing downriver on an ice floe. As she cries for help, Bosko finds a St. Bernard and together they race to save Honey. Meanwhile, a mouse in Honey's home plays golf, using macaroni as a golf club, a pea as a ball and a slice of Swiss cheese as his golf course. Written by J. Spurlin

The highlight of this one isn't Bosko, but a mouse
20 August 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a rather marginal short-not terrible, but not very memorable for the most part either. I will discuss some scenes from this short, so what follows contains spoilers: Two of the most disturbing words to be combined in a sentence are "Bosko yodeling" (I shudder at the memory. He's no great shakes at yodeling and he's clearly a very sore loser-just ask the owl who outdoes him here about his sportsmanship.

Sadly, Honey joins Bosko in yodeling but (mercifully) it doesn't last long. The short then diverges into two story lines-Bosko and Honey at play, with Honey naturally getting into danger so that Bosko has to rescue her and a mouse deciding to brush up on his golf game by playing a few "holes" on a piece of Swiss cheese. This is far more entertaining than the other track and I almost wish they'd just made the last part of the cartoon about the mouse alone, as the peril and the rescue are hardly novel ideas and are all too predictable. At least a mouse putting a pea around on a wedge of cheese is different.

This short does have some nice visual gags and a few good moments, so it is worth seeing at least once.
