He was pretty awesome. Not only does he win the, "Best use of the worst disguises ever" award, his paranoia played off really well against Sam and Max. Sam played an interesting *almost* straight man of reason compared to him, yet Max was all about promoting the paranoia.
I kept simply choosing dialogue choices just to see Bosco's reactions. His involvement also helped to show other sides of Sam and Max. The fact that those two, though seemingly in a business to make money, don't really care about money. Max just wants his fun. Sam likes the companionship with Max and just the idea that they're on a case. You can also tell that the craziness, they cause, drives Sam as well. Without those factors, life is just less interesting.
So in a way, I think he serves his purpose not only at being a humorous foil, but he was a good aid in the player's awareness of character development for our leads.
The Mole, the Mob, and the Meatball actually had my favorite musical number from Season's 1 and 2. Not only was it the most catchiest tune, I know from the series, but the premise itself was great. Unlike the other songs, it didn't simply talk about or advertise the subject material it is based on (which is ok, and nicely characteristic), it itself was a running joke about the existence of the subject material. A double whammy of well-developed subject matter that kind of hit multiple levels of humor there. Something I kind of hoped the developers would've keyed on why some might like that song the best.
