RIDE ‘EM BOSKO

Cartoon Brew reader Holly Melcher sent in this photo of a Bosko pillow pattern she found at an estate sale. Bosko merchandise is rare, but more and more of it keeps turning up. Apparently Harman & Ising exploited the character (The first Looney Tunes star) on their own after leaving the Schlesinger studio in the mid 1930s – and tried again in the early 1950s when the early cartoons were first sold to television.Holly’s find is a new one on me. Here’s a larger picture, and close up of the copyright and product info.
