Bosko in Person is pretty entertaining musically
Bosko in Person takes place entirely on a stage where he and Honey perform songs, musical instrumentals, and singing celebrity impersonations. I recognized Bosko's Jimmy Durante but I don't know who Honey was impersonating when she sang in a big, brassy, voice. Music director Frank Marsales keeps things moving to a nice jazzy beat throughout with a fine patriotic finish and a nice illustration of President Franklin Roosevelt on drums at the end. Bosko in Person is one of many Harmon-Ising (harmonizing, get it?) cartoons made for Leon Schlesinger starring the monkey-like character for Warner Bros. in the early thirties before they left for greener pastures at MGM. When they took Bosko there with them, he would emerge into a different character...
