Bosko was the first Looney Tunes star. He found a bit of popularity in the early 1930s before leaving the Warner Bros studio, when his creators Hugh Harmon and Rudy Ising went to set up a cartoon studio for MGM. Bosko never really rivalled Mickey Mouse or Popeye in popularity but he did help establish the two cartoon studios that would produce the best animated shorts in the 1940s.
