* NamesTheSame: A 1960's WesternAnimation/BugsBunny short would also share the name of "Dumb Patrol", which was also the name of an early Bosko short.

* KillerGorilla: Bosko encounters one in "Congo Jazz", and then also in "Bosko at the Zoo". Both times, Bosko infuriates the gorilla by spanking a mischievous monkey.



* MisplacedWildlife: In "Congo Jazz", the location is clearly an African jungle--and yet a Kangaroo is among the menagerie of critters Bosko encounters.
* MusicSoothesTheSavageBeast: Done by Bosko to a hungry tiger in the beginning of "Congo Jazz"--in order to keep the tiger from eating him, he whips out a flute and starts playing some music, and then dances around with the tiger to "Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush". Once he gets the tiger in a happy mood and lures him near a cliff, Bosko pulls the tigers pants down and literally kicks his butt, sending him sailing off the cliff as Bosko laughs.

Later in the same short, he also calms down a gorilla by making a makeshift string instrument out of a chewing gum.

While Bosko was initially what is now considered to be an offensive character, Rudy and Hugh shortly decided to ditch the allegedly black-stereotypical aspects of him in favor of him being more like an everyman character, from having him own his own businesses, to getting to beat up the occasional ''white'' bad guy -- [[FairForItsDay pretty progressive for its time, ain't it?]] Hugh and Rudy however insisted that Bosko was never meant to be an offensive depiction of a black person, claiming the southern voice in his early appearances wasn't meant to be African-American dialect, and that they thought of him as more of a young Jewish boy or [[TheJazzSinger Al Jolson]] type character. Whether they were sincere about that or were trying to save face remains a mystery, especially since Bosko's copyright notice describes him as a "negro boy", as well as the fact that he eventually got redesigned into a full-on black kid in his MGM shorts.

* ShoutOut: One brief scene inside of a tunnel in "Box Car Blues" has Bosko doing an impersonation of Al Jolson's "Mammy" line from ''TheJazzSinger''.

* ThatsAllFolks: By all accounts, he ''should'' be the TropeNamer, as he technically said the lines first in "Sinkin in the Bathtub", but for some reason it went to WesternAnimation/PorkyPig instead.

While this technically makes him the TropeNamer, as he technically said and Buddy would also say it at the lines first in "Sinkin in the Bathtub", but for some reason it went to end of his his shorts, WesternAnimation/PorkyPig instead.would later become the TropeCodifier, providing the best-remembered version of the phrase.

* Bosko, the Talk-Ink Kid: Although it was not released theatrically, it could in a sense be considered the very first entry in the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes series.

* OffModel: One glaring example in "Bosko's Knight-Mare"; the first couple scenes of Bosko riding a horse feature an lavishly drawn, well animated realistic horse--and the scene where Bosko reaches the castle has the horse abruptly change into a lightly armored rubberhose horse.

** The colorized version of "Ups n' Downs" infamously has the last twenty seconds or so completely changed -- either because the copy shipped to the Korean animators was missing its ending, or because network censors demanded that it be changed due to the original ending appearing to show Bosko winning the race by cheating -- resulting in the new ending not only having everyone's outfits suddenly change color for no obvious reason, but the characters being drawn very inconsistently, and the animation frequently resorting to having them just sat or stood with their eyes spinning around in a way that looks just plain weird.
