A nearly exact copy
of Bosko and Honey, with
a few alterations.
Honey is trying to
teach Wilber to play "In the Shade of the Old Apple Tree" on
the violin, but it isn't going well. "I wanna play cowboy!"
says Wilber after Honey corrects his playing. Honey gets up and calls
Bosko on the phone, but Bosko sleeps as the phone rings. Bruno runs into
the bedroom and tries to wake Bosko by licking his face, but Bosko scolds
him -- "Go away Bruno!". Bruno answers the phone, and Honey
immediately recognizes his bark, asking him to wake Bosko up. Bruno drags
Bosko out of bed, and Bosko finally answers the phone. "Come on over,
Bosko!" says Honey on the other end. "Okay, Honey!" Bosko
replies. As Honey returns to Wilber she sees him dancing on the piano.
She scolds Wilber, who grudgingly returns to his violin. Meanwhile Bosko
is riding his bicycle over to Honey's as Bruno follows alongside him.
Hijinks include Bruno jumping through Bosko's arms, the duo switching
places momentarily after going through a pipe, and Bruno powering a treadmill
that Bosko rides on. Bosko approaches Honey's place and hears the music
lesson. He pulls a saxophone out of his pants and begins playing the tune
Wilber can't seem to master. Honey hears him and goes out to her balcony
and begins singing "(We've Got to) Put that Sun Back in the Sky",
which Wilber imitates in a most unflattering manner. Bosko does a soft
shoe number on Honey's walkway, and Honey repeats her song. Wilber imitates
her again, grabs a tub of wash, and pours it down onto Bosko, who is left
swimming on the walkway. Bosko and Honey ride off on his bicycle, as Bruno
follows behind holding the picnic basket in his teeth. A chicken somehow
ends up in front of Bosko and Honey, but manages to get out of the way
before she is run over by the bike. Bosko and Honey ride directly into
a barn, which Honey emerges from riding on the back of a cow. The cow
tosses her off, which Bosko finds highly amusing. "That sure was
funny!" he shouts. "Oh yeah?" she responds angrily, but
before she can do anything a terrible rainstorm begins, and they run off
for cover under an archway. Bruno gets hit in the behind with a bolt of
lightning, then drags his derriere along the ground. Standing right under
a storm pipe, Bosko gets drenched by a sudden flow of water, giving Honey
the last laugh as the cartoon ends.
--Also heard on the
soundtrack: "Shade of the Old Apple Tree" and "It Ain't
Gonna Rain No Mo' " [LT&MM]
this and Bosko and Honey:
- The scene of Bosko's
phone trying to wake him up is cut, and Bosko's phone conversation with
Honey is shortened.
- A treadmill gag
is added to Bosko and Bruno's bike ride.
- After Honey sings
on the balcony and Wilber imitates her, instead of Wilber immediately
grabbing the tub of wash, we cut to a scene of Bosko dancing. After
his dance, the scene of Honey and Wilber is repeated, only this time
Wilber does indeed grab the tub of wash and dump it on Bosko.
- When Bosko is drenched
by Wilber, the sequence of Bosko blowing bubbles out of his sax and
Honey using them to step down to the ground is replaced by a scene of
Bosko swimming on the walkway.
- Bruno's business
with the tree is cut completely.
- The chicken gag
is added to Bosko and Honey's bike ride.
- The sequence where
Bosko and Honey ride into the barn and Honey emerges on a cow replaces
the sequence of Bosko and Honey on the log from Bosko's Holiday,
though some of the animation looks the same.
