Bosko and the race
10 June 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Bosko cartoons may not be animation masterpieces, but they are fascinating as examples of Looney Tunes in their early days before the creation of more compelling characters and funnier and more creative cartoons. There are some good cartoons, as well as some average or less ones.

'Bosko the Speed King' is another one of the better later Bosko cartoons as was said with the previous cartoons 'Bosko in Person' after seeing three forgettable efforts in a row. Sure, as usual, the story is thin and more of an excuse to string along the gags and music scenes. Occasionally the pacing lags slightly and Bosko is still a pretty limited character if never an annoyance.

Honey is very charming however. As always for a Bosko cartoon the animation is good. Not exactly refined but fluid and crisp enough with some nice detail, it is especially good in the meticulous backgrounds and some remarkably flexible yet natural movements for Bosko. The music doesn't disappoint either, its infectious energy, rousing merriment, lush orchestration and how well it fits with the animation is just a joy.

Sound quality has clarity and the synchronisation isn't sloppy and has imagination. The way Bosko is animated is well done and remarkably natural.

Most of the gags are amusing, though a couple of them are also too familiar.

In summary, good fun. 7/10 Bethany Cox
