Bosko whistles "It Ain't Gonna Rain No Mo" as he walks down the sidewalk in the pouring rain. His umbrella provides a good sailboat when he wants to cross a flooded street. Meanwhile, Honey is getting dressed and made up. She's about to remove her nightgown when she realizes that we in the audience are watching her. She goes behind a modesty screen, but the mirror reveals all to us. Bosko arrives at Honey's place and one of her friends opens the door. Little does she know that several of her friends are downstairs waiting to surprise her. This is Honey's birthday. Honey's little yapping dog causes trouble before and during the party. Worse trouble comes from her pupil--a little kitten who hides underneath a flowerpot and can't get out from under it. When he finally does, he causes a minor catastrophe. Written by J. Spurlin

Bosko's Party is a very entertaining Bosko short
11 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I'm with the previous reviewer, this was a very entertaining short with plenty of gags and the wonderful musical number, "Suger, That's What I'll Name You" as sung by Honey. Loved the cat trying to get out of that flowerpot. Or the pig being too large to hide under the bed until Bosko takes a pin and "deflates" him enough to let him lower the bed. Or Honey getting dressed, recognizing the audience, hiding behind something as a mirror reflection still allows us to see her. Or the dog in the aquarium chased by Bosko. That dog is the same one that appears at the end with Bosko while he's saying, "That's all, folks!" while the dog is barking. Is he a precursor to Bruno? Anyway, worth a look for anyone looking for early Warner Bros. animation.
