Sorry for no posting yesterday, and it's already been about three days since I last posted a review. I'm able to post another one, but I'm afraid that after that I can't post for about two weeks - until August 13th. Sorry, folks - it's my two week holiday abroad on a cruise. In the meantime, here's Big Man from the North.
Release date: January 1931.
Directors: Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising.
Producers: Hugh Harman, Rudolf Ising and Leon Schlesinger (associate).
Starring: Johnny Murray (Bosko).
Animation: Isadore "Friz" Freleng and Robert Edmunds.
Musical Score: Frank Marsales.
In my opinion, I think the stories of Bosko in 1931 start to kick him well, while it was just singing and dancing, and Bosko becomes more of that type of character. Of course, it doesn't start kicking immedtimmediately that Bosko was a better character, I'll and see the developments whilst reviewing the cartoons. So, enjoy the next reviews in the next 1931 cartoons.
The sheriff is waiting in his hut for his deputy Bosko to return, and in such a snowstorm, Bosko finally arrives - and both the Sheriff and Bosko try to make a real effort in trying to close the door, while a big dust of snow is storming through, and the force makes it harder for the two to try and keep the door shut. Bosko tries his effort to hold onto the Sheriff and not let go and hit himself in the wall, while the Sheriff is trying to close the door. As Bosko tries not to let go, the force is strong and the sheriff's pants loosen and Bosko holds on and falls off and hits the wall.
As the sheriff finally manages to close the door properly, with a block over it to prevent the door from falling down. The wind still blows strongly and the ups and down parts of the door wobble. In the meantime, the Sheriff asks for his trousers back and Bosko handles them back to the Sheriff who seems busy and stressed.
There are two huskies and a puppy waiting outside for Bosko to begin his mission finding that criminal who the sheriff wants in his "wanted" poster. So, Bosko starts of his mission in the snow.
As the lights go back on, the mug is still looking out for Bosko - and Bosko gets a gun out with bullets fully loaded and manages to shoot it at his bottom. So, in vengeance - the mug gets his knife out and tries to stab Bosko which makes situations even more violent.
All in all, the short wasn't too bad. It's a story type short, and not much singing and dancing there, and there are climatic stuff in that short that prevents from the short from being boring. I still feel that the knife up in anal situation is inappropriate for younger viewers, and I'm quite curious if this was ever censored at all?
Stay tuned for more.
