    Description

    Bosko and the Pirates (MGM, 1937). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Happy Harmonies is the name of a series of animated cartoons distributed by MGM and produced by Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising between 1934 and 1938. One sheets seldom surface on these titles. Produced in Technicolor, these cartoons were very similar to Disney's Silly Symphonies. They occasionally featured Bosko, a character who starred in the first Looney Tunes shorts that the duo produced for Leon Schlesinger. After the first few releases, the design of Bosko changed from an ink blot to a realistic African American boy. In this cartoon, Bosko is taking some cookies to Grandma's house, but he is hassled by a group of wily buccaneer frogs, who eventually make him walk the plank! Like many cartoon posters of this era, this is essentially a stock sheet with the specific title printed in an open area below the artwork. The poster had pinholes all along the borders, a small tear in the top border, fold wear with crossfold separations, and some smudging in the borders, all of which has been addressed with professional restoration. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
