Betty's campaign tries to appeal to everyone. Real candidates are parodied, but campaign promises are a bit bizarre.

Betty Boop for President brought some useful chuckles to me this Election Day
4 November 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

With today being Election Day, I thought I'd watch some cartoons that reflect this important event. The title card says it all: "Max Fleischer Nominates Betty Boop for President". In this short, Betty says she'll help "split the money" for the poor as she changes faces (and voices) to become incumbent Herbert Hoover and previous candidate Al Smith. Her opponent is Mr. Nobody, a literal stick figure who lives up to his name so much, he causes the pitcher-whose face literally appears-to drink a glass of his own water! There's also a bizarre gag in which a big jailbird on the electric chair gets changed into something "swishy" courtesy of various makeup gadgets nearby! And then there's a weather operator, who resembles Grampy from later cartoons, that switches a giant umbrella to keep rain from going over New York! And how about when Betty addresses donkeys on one side and elephants on the other just before the elephants call their opposite side "asses"! LOL! With that, I highly recommend Betty Boop for President.
