Storyline

Bosko and Honey perform a wacky stage act that includes doing imitations of Maurice Chevalier, Greta Garbo and 'Jimmy Durante'. Singing, dancing and piano playing are the order of the day. Bosko's anthropomorphic glove even gets in on the act by reciting "Mary Had a Little Lamb." If the performance can be said to have a flaw, it's that Bosko gets a little carried away while dancing, making it no surprise when he finally falls off the stage. Written by J. Spurlin

Bosko in Person is pretty entertaining musically
10 June 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Bosko in Person takes place entirely on a stage where he and Honey perform songs, musical instrumentals, and singing celebrity impersonations. I recognized Bosko's Jimmy Durante but I don't know who Honey was impersonating when she sang in a big, brassy, voice. Music director Frank Marsales keeps things moving to a nice jazzy beat throughout with a fine patriotic finish and a nice illustration of President Franklin Roosevelt on drums at the end. Bosko in Person is one of many Harmon-Ising (harmonizing, get it?) cartoons made for Leon Schlesinger starring the monkey-like character for Warner Bros. in the early thirties before they left for greener pastures at MGM. When they took Bosko there with them, he would emerge into a different character...
