Description

    Bosko in Bagdad (MGM, 1938). 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, particularly one as racially charged as this title. 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's imagination runs away with him during a nighttime cookie delivery to his Grandmother's house. He imagines Arab jazz playing frogs who tempt him with watermelon and castor oil to obtain his cookies!The cartoon also contains caricatures of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, and Stepin Fetchit. There are small vertical fold paper chips, a small hole above "Metro", small crossfold separations, pinholes, and a tiny tear below the duck. Terrific restoration has addressed these minor flaws and the poster displays as new. Very Fine- on Linen.
