Bosko, carrying his hobo stick, travels along the railroad tracks with his dog, Bruno. Unfortunately, they're both on the tracks as they cross a bridge and realize that a train is coming perilously near. They manage to escape via a handcar, which was waiting for them on the tracks. however, once over the bridge, Bruno gets his foot caught near the switch. Bruno escapes, but not before allowing his poor master to think he's dead. Bosko is angry at his pet, but outrage turns to fear when the sound of another train gets them both panicking again. Luckily, the "train whistle" is only the mooing of a cow. The pair's adventures continue as they try to steal a chicken for her eggs. Finally, they end up on a runaway boxcar and have a second encounter with the obnoxious cow. Written by J. Spurlin

Warner Bros. banned the showing of its earlier Looney Tune . . .
9 January 2017 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . HITTIN' THE TRAIL FOR HALLELUJAH LAND, but apparently felt no such qualms in NOT prohibiting us from watching BRUNO AND BOSKO, which might as well be titled HITTIN' THE TREE FOR HALLELUJAH LAND. The sorry lot which makes up the current day Warner Brass and focuses mainly on how many MegaCorporations they can foist off ownership of their greatly watered-down brand upon, presumably endowing those at the top of the Warner pyramid with multiple Golden Parachutes, could care less that their former stable of Looney Tuners has proved more uncannily accurate in their predictions of Present Day America's upcoming Calamities, Catastrophes, Cataclysms, and Apocalypti than the over-rated Nostradamus was about ANY of his alleged prognostications. The late Looney Tunes director Chuck Jones was perhaps the last surviving Looney Tuner who realized that the classic brief cartoons from Warner's Animated Shorts Seers division were primarily important for their political context, then and now (when I heard Chuck say this during an interview, I began seeing ALL Warner's cartoons in a different light). Though Bosko seems to be leading his dog Bruno during BOSKO AND BRUNO, a close viewing proves that it's actually BRUNO who's calling most of the shots. Obviously, Warner's Looney Tunes psychics are sensing the advent of newly appointed (by the Racist "Electoral College") American strongman, Red Commie KGB Chief Vlad "Mad Dog" Putin (represented here by Bruno, who else?) and his Puppet, White House Resident-Elect Rump (Bosko, naturally). After a series of "adventures" corresponding to every twist and turn of our 2016 Rigged Presidential Election, Bosko and Bruno end up on the Train of America, hurtling down a track which dead-ends at a solid tree! The cattle-like majority of Americans who have yet to raise a peep about the Red Commie KGB takeover of America, our U.S. Military, and all of our former Freedoms are represented by a cow stuck on the tracks in front of the train, which gets totally Accordioned, Crushed, and Destroyed when the locomotive collides with the tree trunk. Inevitably, KGB Chief Putin and his Puppet Rump escape unscathed, since Loan Shark Putin (those of us who have seen Rump's tax returns know that he's "borrowed" many billions of bucks from Vlad and his Oligarchs!) has planned to end America this way since recruiting Rump in the 1970s as a prospective MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE with a promised Golden Parachute (that's likely to find the Trumpster eventually landing next to the Kremlin in Red Square).
