Storyline

Bosko in his scrappy, anthropomorphic plane and a fearsome beast in his awesome, cannon-hauling machine are in a dogfight, and Bosko loses. His plane is vaporized in mid-air, but Bosko's fall is broken by the keys of a piano. Bombs have destroyed most of the house surrounding the piano, but the instrument itself is undamaged. Bosko meets Honey, a French girl who happens to skip by. His piano playing impresses her, but the fearsome beast interrupts his performance by dropping a bomb on him. This time Bosko uses a dachshund for an airplane by spinning its head around like a propeller. Now, with a homemade machine gun and the pickets from a picket fence for bullets, Bosko can't lose.

Fun and frolic during wartime
3 May 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

Warfare is not going to get Bosko or Honey down, nosiree! The title is a play on the film title Dawn Patrol and Warner Brothers made another short 33 years later with the same title. Both are decent, but they started to flesh out the Bosko character at about this point in the series, so this one is better than most, if a bit inane. Well worth watching. Recommended.
