This is a fairly typical early Bosko and is reasonably amusing. There are one or two points I want to discuss in some detail, some "Here there be spoilers":
This short is musically-oriented and lots of things become musical instruments in the hands of Bosko, his work crew (a bunch of small, strangely familiar mice) and Bosko's girlfriend. It is to the temporary misfortune of one particular mouse that Bosko is his foreman. The mouse falls off a wall and lands on a saw, which starts making music. Bosk starts bending and warping the saw to get musical notes from it, which tosses the mouse up into the air. At one point, the mouse comes down on the saw-teeth and his head lands on one side and his body on the other. You then see the head and the body moving around on the saw as Bosko bends and warps it to make music as the body and head frantically try to get back together.
Later on in the short, Bosko sees Honey in an office and goes across to her window by using musical notes as steppingstones in mid-air. He proceeds to put sheet music in her typewriter and play it like a piano. The capper on the music from unusual sources is Bosko's use of a goat as bagpipes.
This has quite a few of the visual gags that would be used frequently in the Bosko shorts, such as Bosko breaking up into lots of little Boskos after hitting the ground and the playing of music when running across steps or bricks where the path is differentiated enough to resemble a keyboard or a xylophone.
Good, if rather standard, Bosko short. Worht watching, if you get the opportunity. Recommended.
