Betty!
26 January 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Betty Boop starts to take more form in this, the second cartoon in which she appeared, although she still has floppy spaniel ears.... yes, Betty was a real dog when she was young!

This is one of the animated song cartoons that Fleischer did, and the gags fill out the singing of 'Barnacle Bill'. Not bad.
