Amorous hunters Bimbo and Koko set out to bag some furs for coat-loving Betty Boop, but things don't turn out the way they'd planned...

Betty Boop (voice)


Koko the Clown and Bimbo overhear Betty Boop singing about how much she wants a fur coat. That's enough for them. Now they're off to bag themselves a moose, a bear, a fox, a lion, a leopard. It doesn't much matter as long as a fur coat will bag Betty. But neither of them are especially competent at the sport. Koko has to put up with a moose that fires back; while Bimbo suffers the wrath of a lion who multiplies after being shot. And neither hunter accounts for Betty's fickleness or her kind heart.

Koko and Bimbo just can't win here at all!

This short had to be done pre-code, because it wouldn't have been worth doing if you have to change much to make it "decent". Koko and Bimbo both try to impress Betty, but they make an unfortunate error and try to give her what she says she wants-a dangerous move to make with most women. This is the place where a comment about fickleness in general and Betty Boop in particular, would belong, but visions of irate women armed with torches and pitchforks descending on my residence like extras in Frankenstein give me pause and, as with all noble cowards, discretion is my chosen course, so instead, I'll make an observation about people in general saying one thing but changing their minds about it later. Koko and Bimbo are in for something of a surprise in the end here. The moral here, kiddies. is to always have a backup plan for when things (almost inevitably) go differently than you planned. In print and available. Well worth watching. Recommended.
