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." Written by <>

Schizoid Cartoon Still Draws Smiles
26 September 2001 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

The Fleischer brothers liked to experiment with animation.

They were also rather weird.

This is the marriage of those two worlds, sprinkled with the genius that the Fleischers brought to animated cartoons. CRAZY TOWN can be easily seen as an inspiration for Clampett's PORKY IN WACKYLAND, though WACKYLAND is superior in the fact that there is actually a cohesive plot. A plot (barely) exists in CRAZY TOWN, as Betty Boop and company weave through the most far-fetched, perception-shattering and bizarre scenes imaginable.

A description just cannot be justly done, without sounding insipid or insane. A film that HAS to be experienced to be understood.
