A new cartoon here, and this is one that I do like out of the Bosko and Harman-Ising cartoons I've seen recently.
Meanwhile, Honey is at home, she's reading a newspaper with Bosko on the front cover with the headline, "Bosko to Fight Champion", she remarks "What a man," to Bosko. She turns on the radio to hear about the boxing. An announcer who is hosting the boxing bets that Bosko is going to get defeated by the champion he's fighting who is favourite to win. She turns off the channel, to kiss a picture frame she has of her boyfriend, Bosko - still hoping he would win. Bosko's fighting rival, apparently named "Gas House Harry" is practicing fighting, and he has more fans than Bosko.
Honey is at home playing the piano, and she is also listening to the radio about the boxing. "Gas House Harry" walks down the arena, and he is appreciated by a lot of his fans, as he is a heavyweight champion. Bosko then walks down the arena with a song to his fans, "I'm a hot-shot guy called Bosko, come and watch me do my stuff!" ToonZone confirms that's what Bosko said. Bosko climbs onto the canvas and prepares to fight!
So far of the Bosko cartoons and Harman-Ising cartoons I've seen, I actually really liked that one. Yes, it had a good tight-story, that showed Bosko's rival who is favourite to win, and it is proven that Bosko loses. The gags in there were very well put, and that's what I do like. It's also great to see that the cartoon is hardly reused at all - I don't think there is any reuses in there. Overall, this cartoon really works and that's one of the 1932 cartoons I really enjoyed watching.
