Storyline

Bob, his girlfriend and her mother are driving through South America. Bob wants to get married at the next town, Los Poach-os Egg-os, where they are currently holding a festival called Dontdoit Day. The road to wedded bliss for Bob and his girl hits a slight bump as his girl catches the eye of a dashing gaucho, and the Mayor, who is the only official in town who can perform the wedding, refuses to do so on Dontdoit Day. In addition, Bob has been the bane of the Mayor's existence since arriving in town, in part since Bob has also cast his eyes on a pretty señorita, who happens to be courted by the Mayor.

Trivia

Released in 1942 by the then newly-formed "roadhouse" company, Comedy House, Bob's Busy Day started life as "Going Spanish", a two-reeler from 1934 produced by Educational Pictures, but after undergoing extensive editing and a name change, the result was a one-reeler that retains all the comedic scenes from "Going Spanish", but without the musical interludes.

Dumb and confusing....
21 September 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Bob's Busy Day" is a very confusing film when it first begins. While it was released in the 1940s, it's obvious the print is about 10 years older. This is because the footage originally came from a full-length film called "Going Spanish" but someone later edited out all the singing and kept all the laughs...or, shall I say 'so-called laughs'?!

The film is simply terrible. It's jokes are dreadful and very contrived. One example of the crap in this film is the Hispanic place Bob Hope visits...'Los Pochos-Eggos'. And, when he's in Los Pochos-Eggos, every acts stupidly--punching each other and behaving like idiots because it's 'Don't Do It Day'. Huh?! Who wrote this crap?! It's obvious that even a decent comic is only as good as his or her material...and this material is awful and terribly unfunny. Worth a look only if you want to see the absolute worst film Hope ever made.
