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

Funny short with some cute bits surrounding the attempts to hide for a surprise party
28 September 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a very entertaining Bosko short, centering on a surprise party for Honey. I want to talk about some of the gags below, so this will serve as a spoiler warning:

Bosko shows up at Honey's house, where a surprise party is being planned. Honey is dressing upstairs (delicately moving behind a screen-with a mirror reflecting her while she changes). Honey's dog greets Bosko so enthusiastically that Bosko is afraid he'll tip off Honey.

Much of the early part of the short deals with the attempts of guests to hide. A large pig tries to hide under a bed, in the process revealing what looks like a mouse hiding in a chamberpot. Bosko deflates the pig so that he'll fit under the bed. The little obnoxious cat (Wilber) keeps trying to hide in places which are already occupied-Bosko finally covers him with a flowerpot. Intercut with scenes of animals trying to hide are shots of Honey strolling down the upstairs hallway heading downstairs.

Honey is surprised by her guests and given her gift by Bosko-a ukulele, which leads to the almost obligatory musical number (I don't recognize the song and the lyrics aren't too clear).

The final gag has Wilber managing to turn everything upside down. I hope this makes it onto a future Looney Tunes Golden Collection. Well worth finding. Recommended.
