Sinkin' in the Bathtub

Sinkin In The Bathtub is the very first short in the Looney Tunes series, released in 1930, starring Bosko The Talk Ink Kid and made by Hugh Harman And Rudolph Ising for Warner Bros. However, this was not the first appearance of Bosko — he first popped up in this unreleased pilot.

The plot, if it can be called that, starts with Bosko taking a shower, approriately whistling to the tune of "Singing in the Bathtub". After some antics in the tub, along with the tub coming to life and ripping apart toilet paper, Bosko goes for a ride in his car to visit his sweetheart Honey. After a bit of serenading, they go off for a afternoon ride, and Hilarity Ensues.
