Storyline

Betty and Bimbo take a trolley ride to Crazy Town, as Betty sings, "Let's Go Crazy." They arrive at a station, Crazy Town pulls in, and they get aboard. Things are upside down there: fish fly, birds swim; a fellow dons hats on his feet and a shoe on his head; an old man eats a banana peel and tosses away the fruit. A fish catches a man, and a horse, with pooper-scooper in hoof, follows a man. Bimbo heads for a barber shop where bald men get hair clipped onto their heads and the shoeshine boy shines bare feet. Betty goes to a beauty salon where women trade in their heads for new ones. At the zoo, animals behave like their opposites. It's time for Betty's encore, "Let's Go Crazy."

Crazy Town (1932)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Betty Boop and Bimbo travel to Crazy Town, a place where everything happens in a way it's not suppose to. Birds swim. Fish fly. Lions are pets. Mice are dangerous. This was included on a "crazy cartoons" collection and doesn't really feature too much crazy or controversial things but it's a nice little short none the less. Fleischer has a nice imagination at work as we get all sorts of things not working or acting the way they should. This makes for some nice visuals but I never really laughed at any of it. Boop certainly is the highlight here as she sings and dances a few times in the film.
