Parlour pranks with Bosko
12 June 2017 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

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 Parlour Pranks' is not terrible, nor is it a particularly memorable cartoon. None of the weakest efforts are and all of them have enough to make it mediocre at worst, but 'Bosko's Parlour Pranks' didn't do much for me.

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. A few of the gags are amusing if not much more than that.

Regarding Bosko himself, he is not the most interesting of characters and is not particularly fun or likable. Too many of the gags are pretty limp and are lacking in wit, memorability and sharper timing, which is enough to bring. Wilber is very irritating and the story is thin and dull at times.

In conclusion, average and forgettable. 5/10 Bethany Cox
