Hey, Hey Fever is a pretty entertaining initial Bosko outing for M-G-M
Just discovered this on the Misce-Looney-ous blog which usually posts shorts and other film and TV spots related to the Warner Bros. cartoons and characters. This M-G-M cartoon short was included because it was the first that featured a former Warner character named Bosko. He was the creation of Hugh Harmon and Rudolf Ising who took him with them when Leon Schlesinger wouldn't increase the budget of their animated shorts. Not only is this the first Bosko to be introduced by Leo the Lion but it's also the first time he's seen in color. Having said all that, I'd like to say that while this isn't a particularly funny effort, Hey, Hey Fever does entertain with the original way the leading character and various Mother Goose ones sing about overcoming the Depression blues. For that reason, I highly recommend this to any animation buff especially any Warner and M-G-M completist out there.
