Bosko ought to be in pictures
30 November 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Whereas most Bosko cartoons had the small, black-and-white character of no discernible species go through an adventure and have a resolution with his girlfriend Honey, "Ride Him, Bosko!" has a real surprise ending. Just when Bosko is in limbo, we see that the cartoon IS in fact a cartoon: the camera pans away from the scene, revealing Hugh Harman, Rudolf Ising and their assistants watching the cartoon, wondering how to end it (they can't decide, so they go home for the day).

Obviously, the Termite Terrace crowd elaborated on this idea in later cartoons. In the late '30s, characters would often address the audience directly, forcing people to acknowledge that the action on screen was make-believe. Friz Freleng's "You Ought to Be in Pictures", took the genre to a new level: set in the live-action world of Warner Bros. studios, Daffy Duck convinces Porky Pig to move to live action cinema.

Anyway, this is an OK look into early Warner Bros. animation, before Bugs, Daffy, Porky and Elmer.
