Summary:

Bosko makes music on a farm.

Description:

The setting is a farm, and we join Bosko as he dances with a cow. The cow's pants fall down, causing Bosko to laugh, and the cow to walk away in disgust. Bosko gets on a horse-drawn cart, and starts playing the horse's tail like a fiddle. Bosko then plays guitar on a rake. A family of ducks dances by, but one the baby ducks goes off camera to use the bathroom. Bosko slides off the horse and pours some slop into a pig's trough. A baby pig finds a bottle of booze, and uses the tail of a sibling as a corkscrew to get it open. They play "How Dry I Am" on the bubbles floating out from the bottle. They both chug down the booze, and drop to the ground pixilated. Their father notices the booze, chugs it all down, and begins singing. When he throws the booze away the bottle lands on Bosko, somehow getting him drunk too. Bosko and the pigs get together and sing "Sweet Adeline". As the father pig does a solo, he coughs up an ear of corn, which he puts back by opening a door in his stomach. Bosko pulls on the hog's tail to get him to hit a low note. They continue to dance as the film fades out.


Notes:

  • The cartoon opens with the title card becoming the rear end of a cow, just as in Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse cartoon Plane Crazy, which Harman and Ising had also worked on. [LT&MM]
  • The soundtrack is made up almost entirely of songs from the Warner Bros. feature Song of the Flame (1930). [LT&MM]
