This is an unusual arcade to say the least! Interestingly enough, the Fleischers also did a Popeye centering around penny arcades some years later that is considerably different in style and mood from this one. The Betty Boop series as a whole had a much different feel from the Popeye series, which is understandable, as the intent of the two series are much different as well. Betty is making change in a penny arcade and the gags are mostly sight gags (actually, primarily Bimbo drooling over Betty for about a third of the short) and it is bizarre and occasionally a bit creepy. Marvelous short, but a strange one. In print and available. Well worth watching. Most recommended.
