  Bosko Video is proud to announce the release of the first tape in our

  early Warner Brothers retrospective, featuring Bosko, their first star.

  Made in 1929 to 1932, these cartoons starred a rubbery little black boy

  named Bosko and his girlfriend Honey, with an occasional appearance of

  his dog, Bruno.  These cartoons are just as funny and entertaining today

  as they were sixty years ago. 

 

  As is our custom, all of these tapes are duplicated in SP speed in Hi-Fi.

  The films are also slightly window-boxed to avoid overscan picture loss.

 

  These films are invaluable to colleges, universities and film students.

  With the ever-growing interest in animation and animation art collecting,

  this series of animated classics appeals to a large audience.

                                   REVIEW

  Volume One starts out with a rare demo film called "Bosko The Talk-Ink

  Kid" (1929) which was produced by Harman and Ising to introduce their new

  character to potential financial backers.  The film follows the format of

  Fleischer's Out Of The Inkwell series, with Rudy Ising himself acting

  alongside his animated creation.  This pilot film caught the attention of

  Leon Schlesinger, who sold the series to Warner Brothers.  One of the best

  cartoons ever produced is "Bosko The Doughboy" (1931).  These Bosko cartoons

  are well animated, lively and entertaining.  These cartoons sound better

  than any others, because Warner Brothers provided their Brunswick Recording

  Orchestra to the Looney Tunes series.  Even though there is a great deal of

  cartoon violence in these shorts, it is all presented in the spirit of fun,

  and parents shouldn't be afraid to show them to their kids.  The video

  transfer is sharp and clear.  The overall quality is up to Bosko Video's

  high standards.  They plan two more volumes of shorts to complete their set

  of the Warner's Bosko cartoons.  I personally can't wait.
