Bosko, Bruno and the dog race
8 June 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Bosko cartoons may not be animation masterpieces, but they are fascinating as examples of Looney Tunes in their early days before the creation of more compelling characters and funnier and more creative cartoons. There are some good cartoons, as well as some average or less ones.

'Bosko's Dog Race' is hit and miss but enjoyable, a common standard of the Bosko cartoons. It has been well established by now that the Bosko cartoons should not be seen for their stories, which was never a strong suit (quite the opposite), and the story here is very thin and predictable. It is agreed too that the cartoon drags a little in the middle, where the training is not that interesting and not always imaginative and one would expect the race to have a little more consistent oomph than what was had here.

While he is decent and fun enough, Bosko is sort of limited as a character. His dog is a much funnier and more interesting character, as well as being more endearing.

As always, however, the animation is good. Not exactly refined but fluid and crisp enough with some nice detail, it is especially good in the meticulous backgrounds and some remarkably flexible yet natural movements for Bosko. The music doesn't disappoint either, its infectious energy, rousing merriment, lush orchestration and how well it fits with the animation is just a joy.

Sound quality has clarity and the synchronisation isn't sloppy and has imagination. The way Bosko is animated is well done and remarkably natural. The gags are mostly very nicely done.

In conclusion, a good cartoon. 7/10 Bethany Cox
