Goofs

In the barracks, we see a wide variety of different anthropomorphic animals in their beds. In the shot where they leap from their beds onto the sergeant, they are still a varied group. But then suddenly the various animals disappear and a group of lookalike dogs of various sizes take their place. The pile of dogs are supposedly putting on their clothes, but their clothes actually appear on them suddenly: in one frame, they're all in their long underwear. In the next, they're in uniform. All this occurs in a single shot. The commotion is supposed to conceal the animation tricks. See more »

Beau Bosko is a highly amusing Looney Tunes cartoon short
8 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Since the previous reviewer mentioned nearly everything that happens in this cartoon, I really have nothing to add except to say, yes, this is a very amusing Bosko cartoon. And what a treat that the musical sequences is mostly limited to the beginning and not played or sung throughout! Of course, many of the things that happen here could probably have happened to Mickey and Minnie if Hugh Harmon and Rudolf Ising were still working for Walt Disney! Still, anyone interested in early Warner Bros. animation before the likes of Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, and Bugs Bunny became the studio's stars should be satisfied with many of the Looney Tunes-Merrie Melodies from the early '30s that appear on YouTube. That's all, folks!
