1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of DVD Ripoffs! Nov. 27 2000
By Joe
I recently bought this dvd of Bosko which "claims" to be the best copy of Bosko Cartoons anywhere. This is FALSE. These cartoons are full of film dirt, scratches and are not even in there original state. They are reissues for early 50's television syndication. This can be determined by the fact that the openings show Buddy, Porky Pig and Daffy Duck While the producer credit goes to Leon Schesinger. The problem with this is that these cartoons were made between the years 1929-1933. Buddy wasn't created until 1934, porky wasn't until 1935 and Daffy didn't come out until 1937! Infact, the drawing of Porky Pig on the Title card is circa 1940!The producer's credit should be to Harmon and Ising not Leon, although he was their boss at that time. Beware these cartoons look exactly like the vhs videos of public domain cartoons that you'd find in a supermarket markdown bin.Cartoon Network shows Bosko from time to time and their prints are excelent. They are clear as a bell with no scratches and they're FREE. Don't make a 25 dollar mistake like I did. Shame on any proprietor who tries to pass off this junk to the public!

5.0 out of 5 stars bosko the great cartoon character July 8 2004
Bosko is a great cartoon character, but the Warner Brothers Studio stopped making him in 1934. When Foxy and Roxy did the first Merrie
Melodie bosko had stopped being made, bosko is very funny so i think
this dvd is gonna get alot of money.Bosko the talk ink kid was the first
Bosko cartoon and the first warner bros cartoon.it was made in 1929
but disney did ther first cartoon in 1928 so disney got a head start in
ther cartoon making.So mickey and bosko were not made at the same
time but they both were great. i have sean the first mickey cartoon and the first bosko cartoon.you can see bosko the talk ink kid on the looney tunes goiden colliction on disc 4 and the frist merrie melodie on disc 4.bosko is great so i hope the pepol hwo buy it love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good For Animation History Study June 20 2004
By D
The list of cartoons for the second volume of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection was recently announced, and it will include two black-and-white cartoons. The first volume did not contain any.
While progress is being made in getting rarer and older cartoons restored and released by Warner Brothers, it will still be a long while before they've got Bosko cartoons ready to release (if Warner Bros. releases them at all).
So in the meantime, the two DVDs in the "Uncensored Bosko" series are good for study of early animation, and are actually entertaining. While full of dust and dirt, the video quality is better than most copies of these cartoons.
Also recommended: The Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Presenting Felix the Cat, Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Black and White

5.0 out of 5 stars What's the big deal? Aug. 26 2003
By A Customer
Warner Bros. has all the Bosko cartoons and won't let anybody show them on telivision! Why? Because they think Bosko is a offensive to black people! He isn't even in the least bit offensive, he looks like a coconut with a body and a face carved on him! Bosko the Talk-ink kid may be offensive, but the other cartoons have him sounding like Mickey Mouse! There isn't one thing half wrong with him and Warner Bros. is just too darn picky! Do they really think this stuff is going to offend people? Bosko is one of the greatest cartoon characters ever made! Some people claim he is a rip-off of Mickey Mouse, in a way, the resemblance is clear, but in another, pretty much any cartoon that you watch made in the early 30s is going to be like a Mickey Mouse sort of premise! Besides, Harman and Ising (Bosko's creators) learned to draw the exact same way Walt Disney did along with everybody in his staff! Bosko is a great character and he should be shown on cartoon network. Period!
