 Sinkin' in the Bathtub ReviewSinkin’ in the Bathtub Review

Sinkin’ in the Bathtub is a 1930 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is such a good and inventive film.

It is another film starring Bosko, but here we also are introduced to his girlfriend Honey. Both are good and Bosko is much more memorable here than in his previous film. It opens in the bathtub with him taking a shower and then he goes to Honey and takes her on an adventure. This adventure isn’t meaningful and these two never do anything truly great, but it is nonetheless a wonderful film that is very charming in its own right.

The highlight has to be the animation as it is just so fantastic and inventive. The animators during the 1930s had freedom and because animation was a fairly new medium, they suddenly delved into using it in the weirdest ways possible. This is the prime example of that. The water is used as a slide, the cow changes her shape etc. The designs of the characters are typical for its time and I have never been a fan of it, but the overall animation is fluid and so incredibly inventive that you have to admire it. The score is also very good.

Sinkin’ in the Bathtub has its problems, but it succeeds as a very original and immensely charming film with an incredibly inventive animation to it.

 My Rating – 4.2
