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's Woodland Daze' again didn't do much for me. Not an awful cartoon and watchable as a one-time watch. None of the weakest Bosko cartoons are bad cartoons, with enough to make them at least mediocre if average at best, but they can be let down by unmemorable and sometimes clumsy execution. With that being said, as aforementioned in the first paragraph, some of them are decent to good.
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. The climax is well done and a few of the supporting characters are nice additions.
Regarding Bosko himself, he is not the most interesting of characters and is not particularly fun or likable. Too many of the gags are not memorable in the slightest and suffer from limp timing. The story, as expected, is very thin and cried out for much sharper pacing.
In conclusion, watchable but forgettable. 5/10 Bethany Cox
