Bosko!

Except for a cartoon, I got nothin today. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

Day off from work... 3-day weekend!!!!

Hmmm... wouldn't that be a 4-day weekend for most people who take today off? Memorial Day and all.

But, nope, for me there won't be any extended time off...
I gotta work tomorrow.


I should be uploading a show right now but when ripping to mp3 --

Disc 1 : 12 tracks, all good.
Disc 2: first 8 tracks fine, Track 9 stopped at 40%

Grrrrr..... over and over. Plays flawlessly. Mp3 rip dies. So that messes up what I had in mind for putting up music over the next several days. Oh well. I really wanted to put up that show but no big deal, I guess. Will work on another.

For now it's cartoon time...

LOONEY TUNES - MERRY MELODIES

Released in April 1929,
Bosko, the Talk-Ink Kid is the very first Looney Tunes short.
It's not actually an official cartoon, more of a pilot episode.
Bosko is the star, the very first recurring character...
he went on to appear in over three dozen cartoons
over the next three years.


Directed by: Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising
Animation by: Friz Freleng

Hiya Chris, wow, that was pretty funny. What year do you think that was made? Was that made in the 30s? I love old things.

1930, Sugar Mag! The very first Looney Tunes cartoon. Bosko's descendants -- Elmer and Daffy and Bugs, etc -- were years and years away.

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
