Bosko (uncredited)


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

Bosko and Bruno is a highly thrilling and amusing Looney Tunes cartoon
9 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I actually liked this cartoon a lot better than the previous reviewer. There are many thrills here starting when Bruno the dog gets his foot stuck on the train tracks and it's still there when the train comes through and then he's gone and we feel for Bosko when he's crying but then Bruno reappears from a trap door under the tracks bringing relief for us and anger from Bosko! It doesn't last for long, however, as they walk through a tunnel (haven't they just learned a lesson here?) and while inside they hear something moving so they run outside and after getting a safe spot find it's a cow with his bell ringing! Bruno also chases a chicken and in turn gets chased by a hunter. So, in summation, this was a very thrilling and funny cartoon. Most highly recommended for anyone interested in Warner Bros. cartoons made before the days of Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, and Bugs Bunny. That's all, folks!
