CotD: Babe Ruth makes a cameo appearance as Tweedledum and Tweedledee in “Betty In Blunderland”. Also look for Ed Wynn in this short.
CotD: Cab Calloway’s first appearance in a Betty Boop cartoon was in 1932’s “Minnie The Moocher” which begins with actual film footage of Cab Calloway dancing in front of his orchestra.
CotD: A great example of how racy a pre-Hayes Code short could be, “Is My Palm Read” features Betty Boop in her birthday suit. Don’t believe us– watch it.
CotD: Post-code Betty Boop Theatrical Cartoons like “Pudgy The Watchman” is not as sexy as the earlier shorts, but can be a lot of fun ~
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 an elephant punctures a rubber tree, he gets Betty– and the whole town– bouncing.
Betty Boop falls asleep while working on a jigsaw puzzle of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” characters. The White Rabbit in the puzzle comes to life, and Betty follows him through the mirror (a.k.a. looking glass) into Blunderland, which is just like Wonderland, except that it has subway stations. She finds herself in front of a miniature subway kiosk, through which the rabbit has passed.
Betty Boop and Bimbo take a streetcar ride to Crazy Town for a little vacation, a city where everything is upside-down: fishes are flying, birds are swimming, mice are roaring, the lions crow like roosters… Suddenly, a piano grows out of the ground, and Betty and Bimbo perform for all the town’s animals.
Betty Boop merchandising, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday.
The court ruled in a 2–1 decision that the chain of title had been broken after the original sale of the rights to Betty over 70 years ago. In essence, it said, Fleischer’s family lacks a valid copyright or trademark for Betty.
Is My Palm Read: Bimbo the fortune-teller tries to score with Betty Boop. As she enters the house, the lights are changed so as to see Betty’s silhouette through her dress, upon which Bimbo and Koko remark Hi-dee-ho.
