Storyline

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 as hobos in an average short where not much happens
29 September 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is, at best, an average short in the Bosko series. It isn't awful, but it isn't memorable for much, either, as there isn't a great deal going on here. Here there be mild spoilers:

Bosko is seen in the beginning carrying what was called a "bindlestiff", or a stick with a bundle on the end, tied in a piece of cloth which contains basically all your belongings. Bosko is a hobo, a tramp, "gentleman at liberty" and he's joined by his dog, Bruno. They're walking along a railroad track when a train comes along.

That's basically it as far as plot goes-they're either running from an oncoming train or riding on top of a runaway train. There are a few gags in other areas (Bruno battles a flea near the beginning of the short, for example) but the short basically has the pair placed in danger in one way or another because of trains or parts of trains. The animation is very nice in spots, but at least two sequences is clearly the same drawings used repeatedly to show the same action more than once.

This would probably be a more interesting short if there were a bit more variation to the bits, but there isn't, so it is what it is-a fairly basic and somewhat predictable cartoon. I still would like for it to appear on a future Looney Tunes Golden Collection. Worth seeing at least once.
