Bosko and Bruno is a 1932 Looney Tunes short directed by Hugh Harman.


Bosko and his dog Bruno are walking down the railroad tracks. Halfway across a trestle they realize that a train is coming up fast behind them. They run as fast as they can and jump onto a a handcar which was conveniently sitting on the tracks. Bruno accidentally gets his foot caught in the turnout. Bruno manages to escape and hide under a trapdoor in the tracks. Bosko didn't see this, and thinks he's dead. When the train has passed, Bruno pops out and teases his master for crying. Bosko is mad at his pet's actions and chases him into a tunnel, but they soon hear another train coming up behind them. Fortunately it turns out to be a cow lowing.

Now off the railroad tracks, Bosko and Bruno find some chicken tracks and follow them to a nearby coop. The two then try to steal a chicken so they can have some eggs, but a lawman chases them with a shotgun. They run from him and jump on top of a train. The boxcar they're on uncouples and rolls downhill and through a tunnel where they find themselves now chasing the same cow from earlier.



  • The engine on the train would be a 6-6-0 engine, using the Whyte notation (six leading wheels, six driving wheels, and no trailing wheels), though it is not a recognized wheel alignment.
