Credited cast:


A young college dog calls on Betty Co-Ed with candy and flowers. He drops the candy along the way; and he blows off the flower petals with a sneeze. But it's just as well; before Betty can answer the door a couple of fraternity hazers grab him and toss him repeatedly into the air with a blanket. He's finally saved by a tree branch that catches him by the pants. Up in the tree, he's treated to the woodland animals' jazz playing: a spider is on the trumpet; a squirrel, the piano; another squirrel, the tuba; and more. The tree dances to the music and finally deposits the college kid back at Betty's doorstep. Later, Rudy Vallee appears, singing "Betty Co-Ed," and encouraging the audience to sing along by following the bouncing ball. Written by J. Spurlin

Is That Betty Boop?
3 May 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

No, it's not Betty Boop. The confusion is understandable because it's the same voice as Betty, the imitation Helen Kane singing voice. Betty Co-Ed, however, is not Betty Boop, but the subject of a rah-rah college song sung by Rudy Vallee in this Fleischer Screen Song.

It's a lively song as performed, with a good assortment of gags that make this a great Screen Song. The artwork is primitive and simplistic for the Fleischers in this period and there are a lot of cartoon mice that resemble that of a competing cartoon producer whose initials are Walt Disney. However, a lot of cartoons were produced with this mocking homage, at least until Disney began to sue.
