Cutesy nonsense.
22 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There really isn't a lot of plot to this one, though that doesn't mean it's a bad cartoon. With great animation and a catchy tune, you could do a lot worse.

"The Dancing Fool" begins with Bimbo and KoKo working on a scaffold outside a high-rise. The pair get into a lot of trouble together and ultimately go inside to Betty Boop's dance studio. There, the pair and lots of animals are dancing about having a wonderful time. Ultimately, however, the poor building cannot take any more--and it all comes tumbling down.

This is what I could call a 'turn off your brain and enjoy' cartoon. There isn't much in the way of plot and if I tried to describe more it really couldn't convey what you'll see. Suffice to say that you might find yourself tapping your toes and it is fun--even if Betty barely is in the film.
