The Old Skunk Gag Again

Bosko the Lumberjack begins chopping down a tree, not realising someone is living inside it.

It’s a skunk! And you know what that means in cartoons. “I’m going to raise a big stink about it,” he cries in an early-‘30s cartoon falsetto.

The dotted circles represent the skunk smell. They follow Bosko out of the frame into the next scene.

Max Maxwell and Friz Freleng are the credited animators. Harrison’s Reports of October 1, 1932 says the cartoon was the last to be released in the 1931-32 season, on September 3rd.
