Weird, but fun
1 May 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a very weird cartoon with Bimbo the dog who enters a house where he is asked by strange creatures if he "wanna be a member, wanna be a member?" His answer is no and every time he answers that again the house pulls some tricks on him. Near the end there is a short appearance of Betty Boop (with the voice of Mae Questel), only she has dog ears here.

This cartoon is very weird and surreal in some ways. The house has some great surprises, all very well animated. It looks very original. The music fits the action perfectly and the appearance of Betty Boop, with the strange ears, is a nice one and it helps this cartoon with a nice ending. Recommended.
