Not particularly good....
19 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This cartoon stars Bimbo the dog but there are also appearances by familiar Fleischer Studios characters Betty Boop and Ko Ko. There really isn't a lot of plot to this one. Mostly, Bimbo goes about town begging for rags—though in the process he steals pretty much anything this mutt can get his hands on. By the end, he and Betty kiss and this is really creepy, as by the time "Any Rags" debuted, Betty was completely human and her love affair with Bimbo just seemed wrong. What had happened was that originally, Betty WAS more of a dog—with doggy ears and was Bimbo's girl back in 1930. However, by mid-1931, changing her into a person, this same relationship, even by cartoon standards, is amazingly creepy—let alone illegal in most locales! During the course of all this nonsense, there is a jazz tune. Sometimes such singing jazz cartoons worked well (such as when Betty sang Cab Calloway hits), but here the problem is the quality of the music—Bimbo's voice is too weak and is drowned out by the music. All in all, a somewhat creepy, somewhat plot less mess of a cartoon whose only strength is the great quality of the Fleischer Brothers animation—as usual, it's terrific.
