Ride Him, Bosko! has a highly unusual ending for a cartoon
Ride Him, Bosko! is a western-flavored cartoon with lots of shooting gags involving body reduction, and card characters singing! There's also an alcohol gag that has a really strong one turning a male piano player into a woman instantly! There's a fine musical number, "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" with Bosko tap-dancing up a storm! There's Honey being held hostage in an out-of-control stagecoach with three gunmen behind her! And there's Hugh Harmon and Rudolf Ising looking at the drawing board watching Bosko riding along as they wonder out loud, "How's he gonna save Honey?" "Let's go home," says a third party as they leave Bosko in the lurch as we iris out...Highly amusing cartoon up to the ending though one wonders whether they really couldn't figure how Bosko saves Honey or did they simply run out of time and budget and decided "The hell with it!" Anyway, recommended for anyone with interest in Warner Bros. cartoons before the Big 3 of Porky, Daffy, and Bugs arrived...
