Bosko rides to the zoo on his bicycle as Honey sits on the handlebars. As the two sweethearts are about to walk in, Honey hears the lion roaring. Bosko assures her the lion won't hurt her. Sure enough, Honey remains safe on this outing; but Bosko soon finds himself in great peril. His troubles begin with an ostrich that steals his derby. Later, a porcupine will be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But the real trouble starts when Bosko spanks a misbehaving monkey, which incurs the wrath of the monkey's enormous father. It won't be long before Bosko wins the narrowest of escapes from the ape, a snake and that roaring lion. Written by J. Spurlin

Occasionally interesting and it has some nice visual effects
26 September 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short isn't the best Bosko short, but it isn't the worst one either. It's a trip to the zoo by Bosko and Honey. There will be some spoilers:

Bosko and Honey go to the zoo and it doesn't take long before Bosko starts interacting with the animals in an irritating and unwise fashion. His hat gets eaten by an ostrich, which prompts Bosko to take action to make the bird give it back to him. It obliges by laying an egg. Bosko plays a tune and this gives the animators the opportunity to set the animation in time to the music.

Bosko makes an extremely questionable move when he physically disciplines a little ape, as a larger gorilla comes into the scene and is clearly less than pleased with Bosko. Thus begins the chase. There are some rather nice visual gags incorporated into the chase sequence, where it seems that half the zoo winds up chasing after Bosko. Three critters smash into a wall and come out looking like modern art.

There is also a rather interesting visual sequence involving an aquarium, with Bosko and Honey watching the antics of various fish. All in all, the visuals make this a rather entertaining short, though Bosko is a rather limited character. The things happening around him are far more entertaining than he himself is most of the time.

Hopefully, this will be released on a Looney Tunes Golden Collection at some point in the future. Well worth watching.
