| Bosko to the rescue
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 the Lumberjack' is a very good Bosko cartoon, with a more heroic and likable Bosko to usual, and one of the better ones. The story is a bit predictable with it being a little obvious as to how it was going to end. Not all the pacing is consistent, most of it is energetic but occasionally the energy is a little lost.

Honey is likable and the villain is menacing and entertaining. The characters are archetypal but well done.

As said, Bosko is endearing and heroic.

Furthermore, 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 is imaginative and rarely miss or less than very amusing.

Overall, very enjoyable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
