Meanwhile, there is a rather cartoon-looking octopus that dances around the beach, with seahorses dancing as well. They all dance in their own routines. There is also a repeated gag in there, of the octopus that lands on a rock in the sand, so that the seahorses grab one of the legs like a "merry-go-round" ride. Now, I'm getting sick of that repeated gag.
Honey goes to a spot and picks up a ukulele from a property and starts to play a song. Wilbur decides to go off to the high waves off-screen, but Honey warns him "Be careful, Wilbur". It appears to be that off-screen Wilbur is body surfing through the huge waves. So, it seems that Honey is a ukulele theft by playing one that could have belonged to someone - so it's "finder's keepers" to her then?
Meanwhile as they are playing the song, Bruno keeps on coming into the scene to play, but Bosko keeps on throwing the stick to get Bruno's attention to the stick and not towards Bosko and Honey. The next part, Bruno returns with a log, so Bosko throws the log away so he can catch it. Bruno comes by next with an even larger log, but it lands on a picnic setup, and a jar lands onto Bosko's head. This is another moment in which dogs ruin the show for the characters, but Bruno is just behaving like a dog.
Bruno grabs a fan from a shop, so he starts to attach the plug of the fan into a log, in which the fan starts to speed up Bruno into safety to save Bosko and Wilbur. I know that it's especially impossible for that to happen (as there is nowhere to plug it into), but whatever: Bosko and Wilbur are in trouble and at least "Cartoonland" can give them many chances by doing the "impossible things".
Bruno realizes that he's not getting enough speed on the log, and then he makes the fan go faster, by placing the fan on the sea that makes the log move like a speedboat. There are huge waves that keep on separating Bosko and Wilbur. But Bruno comes in just in time, to rescue Bosko and Wilbur, that really makes Bruno the hero of this picture - and that's all folks.
As for me about this cartoon, well: I think it's best to say it was mediocre at best. The gags in there were pretty straightforward and obvious, they followed the same routine in this cartoon as usual such as: Bosko and Honey having a dance sequence in the middle of the picture, and always a climax sequence. The waves were quite exciting in this short, as there are huge waves which make the short more exciting to watch. Overall, this cartoon isn't one of the best to watch, but it wasn't terrible to watch.
