Silly Scandals (1931) – Talkartoons Theatrical Cartoon Series

Bimbo is trying to get in to see a theater stage show. Because he has no money, Bimbo tries various dodges to sneak into the theater, and eventually succeeds. A standard set of Fleischer audience gags follows: First, Bimbo can’t see because he is behind a large hippopotamus who always shifts to block Bimbo’s view; the hippo is replaced by a woman with a big hat.

When she removes the hat, she has an even bigger hairdo underneath. Bimbo cuts off her hair, and finally, he can see the stage. The crowd cheers Betty by name when she comes on stage. She has dog ears, a white nose, lots of curls and an enormous head.
