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

Kind of weird but enjoyable.
19 December 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Like the title says, Betty Boop is running for president. Her message was a populist one of the era (smacking of the communist redistribution of the wealth pledge) as well as the legalization of booze. Throughout, there are a few funny bits (such as the impersonations as well as the argument between the Republicans and Democrats that uses a bit of naughty language they would NOT have allowed after the Production Code was strengthened in 1934). But there also is a lot of irrelevant material (bits that just seem to come out of nowhere) and an odd bit about an apparent homosexual that keep this from being a better and more cohesive cartoon. Not bad but not among the better outings of the Boopster.
