DIZZY RED RIDING-HOOD {Short} (Dave Fleischer, 1931) **1/2
11 January 2014 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

This is obviously another transposition of a fairy-tale to accommodate the Betty Boop character. The end result is not as entertaining as others of its ilk, being also the oldest 'vehicle' of hers I have watched, but there is still sufficient inventiveness on display (regular partner Bimbo overcomes the wolf's threat and, amusingly, takes up its place at Grandma's house!) – not to mention risqué visuals, since Betty is shown repeatedly losing her garter and causing the male population around her to turn 'wolf' in the process! In the long run, Tex Avery – who made a number of classic variations on this theme in his own right over at the staid MGM studio! – would fare considerably better and, by way of outright surrealism, take the latter modern assimilation to its hilarious extremes.
