| Great first half, not quite as good when Wilber arrives on the scene
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 Store' on the most part is one of Bosko's better cartoons, even if it has its imperfections. 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.'Bosko's Store' falls downhill a little bit when Wilber arrives, Wilber can be tolerable in some of his cartoons but here he is an annoying brat.

As for Bosko himself however, while limited in development, he is fun and more endearing than he can be.

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, especially in the great first half.

Overall, very good and one of the better Bosko cartoons. 8/10 Bethany Cox
