Bosko in Dutch (1933)

Bosko in Dutch ReviewBosko in Dutch Review

Bosko in Dutch is a 1933 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is a solid and interesting, but uneven entry.

I will first state the problems here. For a self-proclaimed Dutch title, there isn’t anything Dutch in it until the second half of the film. That was a problem. Actually the entire first half in and of itself is problematic as it basically sees Bosko ice skating accompanied with typical music of its time and that was just not particularly entertaining.

But the second half is so good that it saves the movie. I loved the use of Dutch shoes, I loved Bosko and Honey and their dance sequences were charming and I really liked the final action sequence because of just one thing which is that help sign. That was such an unexpectedly inventive and funny moment that was the defining part of the entire film.

Bosko in Dutch has a weaker first half, but the second half is charming and quite inventive in its one very amusing moment.

 My Rating – 3.8
