A Little Soap and Water

Fri, Jun 21, 1935 7 mins

Betty Boop wants to give her pet dog Pudgy a bath. Pudgy doesn't want to take a bath. There! That's the entire plot of this cartoon, which largely consists of a wild chase through Betty's house, punctuated by Pudgy's contrary behavior whenever he's plunked into a tub of soapy, bubbly water. But Betty prevails, and Pudgy ends up clean as a whistle--for about twenty seconds. Song: "A Little Soap,a Little Water and a Song".

A Language All My Own

Fri, Jul 19, 1935 6 mins

After performing this cartoon's title song before a packed audience, popular singer Betty Boop climbs into her private airplane and embarks upon a journey to Japan (getting directions from the Statue of Liberty along the way). Upon her arrival, Betty is greeted by cheering throngs of Japanese citizens who have festooned the city with posters bearing her name. During her subsequent stage performance, Betty emerges from a paper lantern and, backed by a chorus of doll-like geishas, offers a reprise of "A Language of All My Own" in Japanese. (One cannot imagine this delightful cartoon being made a few years later, at the height of WW2).

Judge for a Day

Fri, Sep 20, 1935 7 mins

After being annoyed by a variety of "typical" urban pests, Betty arrives at the local courthouse, where she works as clerk. Dreaming that she has been appointed Judge for a Day, Betty decides to get her revenge against the pests who've been harrassing her all morning, inviting the public to "have a laugh" at the troublemakers' punishment. If you think "Judge Judy" is tough, wait till you see the Torquemada-like tortures imposed by "Judge Betty" on such miscreants as back-slappers, messy gum-chewers, obnoxious cigar smokers, careless drivers, and even people who do bad celebrity imitations! Songs include: "If I Were Judge for a Day" and "SING (It's Good for Ya".

Little Nobody

Mon, Jan 27, 1936 8 mins

While playing in his backyard, Betty Boop's dog Pudgy meets a snooty, pampered female dog owned by wealthy next door neighbor Mrs. Fitz-Ritzy. When Pudgy tries to make friends with the lovely canine, he is summarily booted off of Mrs. Fitz-Ritzy's property--and worse, the lady of the house derides Pudgy as a "nobody." Betty comforts her heartbroken pooch by singing "Every Little Nobody is Somebody to Someone", but the full measure of Pudgy's character is not revealed until he rescues the snobbish girl dog from a watery grave. The musical background score includes the venerable "I Don't Want to Play in Your Yard".

Betty Boop and the Little King

Fri, Jan 31, 1936 7 mins

Otto Soglow's popular comic-strip characer "The Little King" had already appeared in his own cartoon series for Van Beuren productions when he guest-starred in this "Betty Boop" vehicle. Forced to attend a boring opera with the Queen and their entourage, The Little King (who speaks in a bizarre "whistling" voice) manages to escape his guards and heads to a nearby vaudeville house, where Betty Boop is headlining in an equestrienne act. Not only does the Little King manage to pick up some extra change as a pretzel vendor, but he also ends up performing on stage with Betty.

Betty Boop and Little Jimmy

Fri, Mar 27, 1936 8 mins

In this "Betty Boop" cartoon, Betty shares the spotlight with James Swinnerton's popular comic strip character "Little Jimmy." In her efforts to stay in shape, Betty has set up an exercise gym in her attic. Paying Betty a visit, Little Jimmy tries to help Betty with her "daily dozen", but succeeds only in causing all the athletic equipment to malfunction. Trapped in a vibrating reducing belt, Betty tells Jimmy to go for help, but the kid manages to get distracted along the way. By the time Jimmy returns, Betty is as skinny as a beanpole--leading to a "laff riot" finale that almost defies descrption.

Grampy's Indoor Outing

Fri, Oct 16, 1936 7 mins

The "Colossal Carnival" comes to town, and Betty Boop is all set to take little Junior to the big show. Alas, a thunderstorm forces the pair back indoors, whereupon Junior bursts into tears. Fortunately, Betty's resourceful neighbor Professor Grampy puts on his thinking cap and figures out a way to stage an elaborate indoor carnival. Using such household items as a washing machine, a seltzer, bottle, a fan and a kitchen table, Grampy comes up with all sorts of swell rides and sideshow attractions. But the best is reserved for last, as Grampy concocts a way to convert a high-rise apartment into a roller coaster (with the help of Max Fleischer's patented "stereoscopic" process). Song: "We'll Have a Bushel of Fun".

Pudgy Takes a Bow-wow

Fri, Apr 9, 1937 8 mins

In her popular live stage show (rated "4 and 7/8 stars", according to the theater marquee), Betty Boop sings "Down in Our Alley" and does politically incorrect (but charming) imitiations of a Chinese laundryman and an Italian organ grinder. Meanwhile backstage, Betty's dog Pudgy gets into a fracas with an alley cat. A wild chase ensues, inevitably disrupting Betty's act. But the crowd loves the antics of the dog and cat--and two new stars are born, whether they like it or not.

The Candid Candidate

Fri, Aug 27, 1937 7 mins

The inimitable Grampy runs for Mayor, with Betty Boop singing his praises. Narrowing winning the election by one vote (out of 2,000,005!), Grampy arrives at City Hall, only to be confronted by angry constituents with a list of rhyming grievances. Facing the possibility of being impeached before he can even take the oath of office, Grampy dons his thinking cap and inventively solves such problems as a "bridge to nowhere" and a dilapidated housing development--with time left over to install liquor bars in all the drinking fountains and to combinine the subway and elevator systems. And in true pro-environmental fashion, he even comes up with a solution for the foul weather plaguing his city.

Fri, Dec 2, 1938 6 mins

In her late-1930s "tall and slim" mode, Betty Boop is a combination cook and dishwasher at "Ye Olde Quaint Coffee Potte" restaurant. Fed up with this dead-end job, Betty jumps at the chance for a career change when she lands a attendant's job at the Bundle from Heaven Nursery. At first, Betty enjoys taking care of the cute babies at the nursery (who are bathed and diapered on a conveyor belt!), but when the kids start breaking up furniture and smashing water pipes, she she has a sudden and startling change of heart. Song: "Off With the Old Job, On With the New".

An unusually tall and slender Betty Boop is enchanted by an organ grinder's monkey--so much so that she invites the "jitter-monk" into her home. Betty's dog Pudgy seemingly finds a kindred spirit in the mischievous simian, so Betty briefly steps out of her apartment and heads downstairs, intending to purchase the animal from its owner. But in her absence, the monk shows his true nature by eating all the food in the house and leading the flustered Pudgy on a not-so-merry (and VERY destructive) chase.
