Worse Than Bosko
1 August 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A lot of people dislike Merrie Melodies' first star, Bosko the Talk-Ink Kid, who may have been a monkey or may have been a small Negro, but who was clearly a rip-off of Mickey Mouse, set up by Harman & Ising after they left Disney and Universal -- that's a long story and we won't go into it here.

But after they tried to cut out Leon Schlesinger as a middleman, Mr. Schlesinger raided their shop and left them, temporarily at least without resources. But he had no cartoon 'star' so there was one invented for him: Buddy, who may not have been offensively drawn, but who was boring. Here he sings 'Monterrey' in a squeaky, annoying voice and goes through a small number of badly-timed gags on a Mexican theme. Even Billy Bletcher doing some voice work can't help this stinker.
