Decent Looney Tunes short
20 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

Bosko's Mechanical Man (1933)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Early Looney Tunes short from Warner has Bosko at his girlfriend's house and he's not too happy to be having to do all sorts of chores. He then reads that robots can do whatever you want so he gathers up various parts lying around the house and builds one but, like Frankenstein, learns not to build things from the dead. This is a fair short that manages to keep you entertained throughout the running time but in the end there aren't enough laughs to make it anything overly special. The highlight, of course, is the robot coming to life and causing all sorts of damage but it's the dog that gets most of the pain as the robot electrocutes him! The animation is pretty good if you like this early form and Bosko is as lively as ever.
