Very good Bosko short featuring a little monster named Wilber!
2 October 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better Bosko shorts, with some very good sight gags and a slight wisp of a plot. There will be a discussion of some details below, so this is a spoiler warning:

Bosko is working in his store and virtually all of his movements are in time to music. He actually dances through much of the short. The cartoon essentially is in two halves-before the advent of Wilber and after him. The short has some funny gags after Wilber comes in, but the most enjoyable part is before his appearance.

Bosko has to contend with a bologna eating dachshund that becomes like a concertina and a little mouse making a prank telephone call. He dances with a broom as he sweeps the walk in front of his store. There's some very nice stuff in the first three minutes or so. And then comes Wilber.

Wilber is the prime argument in favor of birth control. He makes Damien from the Omen look like Buster Brown. Wilber comes down to the store with Honey and proceeds to cause trouble, first with a rude remark to Honey and then by systematically trying to destroy Bosko's store (and probably Bosko into the bargain). Bosko must have the stamina of Wile E. Coyote in this one. Gags involving bananas and molasses figure prominently and the final gag (involving barbed wire) looks painful and is priceless.

I truly hope this short eventually makes it onto a Looney Tunes Golden Collection in the future and the sooner the better. Most recommended.
