Bosko’s Soda Fountain is a 1931 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is a very amusing short.
Bosko’s Soda Fountain doesn’t have a plot really, but it’s a collection of various vignettes. Bosko works in ice cream parlor and first has a problem with a hippo. That part is funny, but the part with the dog being used as an accordion is somewhat typical for Looney Tunes. The last part is definitely the best where Honey’s cat Wilbur demands an ice cream, but when he gets it, he doesn’t like it and retaliates in anger.
That ending is funny as the creature is hilarious in his anger. The film is definitely very good in its parts, but it isn’t really great as a sum of its parts. It is a bit too long and it isn’t well constructed plus the action isn’t that memorable. The humor is really good, but only in some parts. But Bosko is very memorable and this is one of his better roles.
Bosko’s Soda Fountain is funny and great in some parts, but not as terrific as a whole.
