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.

A confusing message about fur!
19 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this film begins, Betty Boop is home singing about how she wants a fur coat. Ko Ko the Clown and Bimbo the Dog naturally assume that to win Betty's heart they need to get a fur, so they both go off hunting. Plus, Betty's home is adorned with hunting trophies. However, after a long and dangerous day of hunting, they return with lots of pelts and Betty doesn't want them—and yells at the boys. Perhaps it is because a long line of naked animals who lost their furs is standing nearby and Betty feels sorry for them. Then in the final scene, she has a HUGE fur wrapped around her as she marches along with the animals! This is a very odd film due to its confusing message about fur—I really am not sure what was intended. I did like, however, the great Fleischer animation as well as the beginning scene with the sun—it was very clever and adorable—and the sort of stuff the studio did best in the early 1930s. Worth seeing but far from Betty's best.
