Bosko is having a grand time on the farm. He dances with a cow and laughs when the cow's "pants" fall down, revealing polka-dotted underwear. He plays a horse's tail like a violin. The horse enjoys the music and dances to it eccentrically, even making like an ice skater at one point. Three ducklings and their mother enjoy the music, too, and dance along. Bosko feeds his pigs by dumping a trash can into their trough. The two baby pigs find a bottle of booze in the trough. They and their father all get drunk on it. The father accidentally flings the bottle away from himself, and it breaks against Bosko's head. Bosko, soaked in booze, is now drunk, too.Written by
This is a typical 1930's cartoon, featuring Bosko, until the last few minutes. At the beginning, it is a series of overused sight gags with Bosko, his horse, and a cow. But when the pigs appear, we are introduced to the glories of drunkenness. The drunk is a staple of this period in film. When one of the little pigs discovers a bottle of bootleg hootch, he and his mate drink it and become soused. Soon an adult pig joins them and a concert of "Sweet Adeline" ensues. It's pretty funny, to be honest, but probably not what the censors would have approved.
