"Kitty from Kansas City" begins with Betty Boop going to the train station to take a trip. She is dropped off in the town of Rudy Valley--at which point the crooner Rudy Vallee appears and sings an enjoyable but mean song by the same title as the cartoon. In this song, you hear about an obese, unattractive and very stupid girl named Kitty--and during the song Vallee tells jokes about just how incredibly dumb this lady is. There are lots of nasty jokes--though I must admit that this was a HUGE improvement over the typical cartoon like this by the Fleischer Brothers. So, in this case, following the bouncing ball as Vallee sang was enjoyable. Then, like other Talkertoons shorts, at the end the live action portion ends and there is a bit more cartoon. Oddly, we now see Betty again but this time very obese and lots of fat jokes ensue. Not at all nice but funny at the same time. I enjoyed this but felt a little guilty laughing at the lyrics!
