Season 3 and Bosco..

posted by boxman on - last edited - Viewed by 1.3K users

I bought the entire series some months back and finally reached s3 and was very disappointing how they got rid of Bosco and Jimmy two teeth.
Who the hell came up with the idea to get rid of that character and the voice actor for Bosco/Jimmy?
Is it just me who miss those characters?

  • @Jake said: During Season 3 I think we were all feeling over-exposed to Bosco, and felt that his story had a pretty good end at the conclusion of Season 2 (a season which over time was revealed to be almost entirely about Bosco and his activities). Fun Bosco fact: He almost came back somewhere in Season 3 (we had talked about him bursting through a wall in a crazy suit like the load lifter from Aliens, made out of Bluster Blaster's body, saving Sam & Max in a pinch, and having Sam & Max say "hey it's our old friend Bosco!") but the story ended up going a different way and that moment fell out.

    That makes sense. I do admit it did feel nice to take a break from some of these characters, and it probably gave you guys a lot more freedom creatively speaking.

    For the record though, Bosco bursting through the wall in a crazy suit like the load lifter from Aliens, made out of Bluster Blaster's body, saving Sam & Max in a pinch would have been really cool. (I think you have your opening of season 4 right here.)

    So, concept art? Or are you going to make us blitz the Fan Art forum with our own interpretations? :p

    Bluster Blaster: ALL WILL FALL! LITERALLY! *CRASH*

  • That didn't get past early story meetings so it was never drawn.

  • That would have been in the grand tradition of Sam and Max being saved by random deus ex machina :D

  • Or in this case, a Bosco ex Machina.

    Bosco is just too good of a character to not include.
    One of the main things I looked forward to was to visit bosco store.


    Well we visited Bosco labs...

  • While Bosco was a great character in first two seasons I think the story of Season 3 worked just fine without him. I think that while bringing back some of the old characters is a good thing, because it creates continuity, it's a bad idea to bring back everyone, because then you have no room for new characters and Season 3 had some very interesting new personalities. I assume that the Soda Poppers were also left out from Season 3, because they were so prominent earlier and some people were growing tired of them.

    Let's hope that Bosco makes some cameo in Season 4, but I don't wish to see him in as prominent role as he was in Season 2. Other characters I would like to see return are Flint Paper (who is one of the best supporting characters ever) and Girl Stinky, but I assume we don't see the latter, because she had so prominent role in Season 3.

    There was no use for either of the characters in this season. I love both of the characters, but they are kind of annoying and distract you from your main objective. When I found out Bosco wouldn't sell anything in Season 2, I was really happy I would have to deal with getting money for his crappy stuff.

  • Oh! I am SO relieved to learn that Bosco isn't in season three! That character is a freakin' waste of space and IMHO went a long way towards making season two the failure that it is.

  • A lot of big concerns to what really did happen to Bosco as in episode 304, when you meet up with Bluster Blaster he references Bosco's left in Vegas. It would of been awesome to reconnect with Bosco in the last episode 305, when the whole gang reunites to stop Max's evil tumor. Hope season 4 comes out soon & Bosco comes back as a secondary character again
