Very good Bosko short, with a fair number of really good gags involving animals.
3 October 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Bosko shorts. It has some nice animation, a lot of nice visual gags and the timing is fairly good here. I want to discuss some of the bits in this one, so there will be some slight spoilers in my comments below:

As the title suggests, the first part of this short takes place at a lumberjack camp (either that, or it's an ax lover's convention) and the first scenes have various critters chopping and/or sawing down trees. There are some nice visual gags in the first minute or two.

We first encounter Bosko in silhouette (which is more impressive than Bosko in person is). He chops down a small tree, which has a very elaborate death scene-aided and abetted by Bosko. Bosko (who seems almost to dance instead of walk in almost every short) then is seen having encounters with a moose and a skunk before Honey brings him his lunch, which Bosko eats with an exaggerated gusto which is faintly disquieting. Enter the villain of the piece-another lumberjack, first seen eating a sandwich made of two pieces of wood and nails for the filling. He spots Honey and decides he wants "a big kiss", so he hauls her up a rope. Bosko notices she's gone only after she screams and we're then treated to gags involving Bosko's failed attempts to rescue Honey.

Eventually, the bad guy makes a run for it (figuratively and literally) in his canoe, leaving Bosko to give chase on a log which suddenly sprouts a sculling crew of mice with oars and Bosko starts calling out the stroke count! There's a really nice visual bit toward the end of the water chase that I won't spoil here.

The bad guy takes Honey to his cabin, where a moose head mounted on the wall as a gun rack acquits itself better in defending Honey's honor than Bosko has so far. Bosko comes in and doesn't initially do any better at the cabin than he did back at the camp, at one point sliding across the room and under a bed, to emerge with a "crown" which looks suspiciously like the top of a broken chamberpot! In the end (as Bosko is, of course, the star here) he beats the bad guy and Honey calls him her hero and there is a suitable closing gag.

I truly hope this one makes it onto a Looney Tunes Golden Collection in the very near future-I really like it and think it's one of the better Bosko shorts. Most recommended.
