| At the zoo with Bosko and Honey
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 at the Zoo' is enjoyable enough, if somewhat hit and miss. It has been well established by now that the Bosko cartoons should not be seen for their stories, which was never a strong suit (quite the opposite), and the story here is very thin and predictable. Not all the gags work, most do with the aquarium part being particularly fun and inventive but a few are spoilt by some truly stupid and questionable actions and decision-making by Bosko.

Regarding Bosko himself, he is a limited character with a personality that is not that endearing, entertaining or interesting here and too many times he behaves like an idiot.

Honey however brings a good deal of charm to the cartoon. As always, 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 gags are mostly very nicely done.

In conclusion, enjoyable enough if not great. 7/10 Bethany Cox
