Bosko makes music
at a construction site.
Bosko is a riveter
on a construction site, making music with his equipment while he works.
Also working there are a group of Mickey-like mice, just as content on
music-making as Bosko is. One of the mice falls off a beam and lands on
a saw. Bosko notices the sound the saw makes, and starts playing it while
the mouse is still on it. At one point the mouse lands on the edge of
the saw and is decapitated, but that doesn't stop Bosko from bouncing
the two halves of the mouse on the saw while playing his tune. The mouse
puts itself back together, but it's flung off the saw and into the mouth
of a goat. The mouse opens a door in the goat's stomach and walks out.
Bosko calls for a beam, so the mouse ties a rope around the goat and cranks
him by the tail, lifting the beam into the air with Bosko riding atop
(now making music with the ropes). Bosko spots Honey typing in a window
nearby. "Hello baby, whaddya say?" he asks. Honey responds by
typing "Gee, you're swell!". Bosko's music forms notes
in the air, on which he hops to Honey's window. Bosko puts some sheet
music into her typewriter and begins playing "Don't Hold Everything,"
as Honey dances on the ledge. Meanwhile, the goat has swallowed a steam
whistle which has inflated him like a balloon. Bosko notices the goat
float past the window, grabs it by the tail and floats back to the construction
site. Bosko begins playing a tune on the inflated goat. The goat then
begins to deflate, zooming through the air with Bosko in tow. Bosko grabs
an udder and is sprayed by goat's milk. He falls to the ground and splits
into six little Boskos, which do a dance before rejoining.
