Bosko Makes Me Happy -- "Bosko's Parlor Pranks" 1934

Pure fun, and a "story" that bounces all over the place! It's Bosko's Parlor Pranks, a Happy Harmonies cartoon made by Hugh Harman and Rudolph Ising in 1934.

This one's a really fun romp -- They make the most of their seven minutes with dancing and many flights of fantasy into the realms of knighthood, boxing and the Old West!

Amazing that the "I want my ice cream" is the one thing that holds the "story" together. I love the tattoo gag and the Cat-Kid and the freaky Jimmy Durante bit. And that Bosko's got mooooves!

Thanks to Animation Resources for turning me on to this wonderfully fun cartoon :)
