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."

Its weirdness make it very watchable even today.
6 July 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

First off, you should probably know that I don't particularly like Betty Boop cartoons and have no idea why there is some sort of retro love affair with the character. My assumption is that the people who buy Boop merchandise has mostly not seen the cartoons because they tend to be rather insipid little films. Sure, the animation is excellent compared to other studios of the time, but the stories and characters are a bit on the lame side. Sorry, but that's just my rather abrasive opinion.

This one is an odd one. Betty and Bimbo end up in a strange place where everything is just bizarre--like the town is on drugs or something. For example, bald people go to the barber and the more he cuts, the longer the hair grows! And, at the beauty parlor, women pick the head they want and pop off the old one! There's a lot more to the oddness than this and at least this sets it apart from most Boop cartoons--making it strangely watchable and entertaining....well, that is until Betty starts singing. Mae Questel's ultra-high pitched singing isn't something my cats or I appreciate! Overall, despite the singing, still much better than usual for Betty and worth a look.
