Storyline

Betty Boop runs away from home with her friend, Bimbo the Dog. They end up in a cave where a walrus, with Cab Calloway's voice, sings "Minnie the Moocher" and dances to the melancholy song. He is joined in the performance by various ghosts, goblins, skeletons and other frightening things. Betty and Bimbo are subjected to skeletons drinking at a bar; ghost prisoners sitting in electric chairs; a mother cat with skull-like eyes feeding her equally empty-eyed kittens; and worse. Written by J. Spurlin

Wow
6 October 2005 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The best cartoon I've seen in half a lifetime. Doesn't say much since I'm still rather young. Point is though this seems like a visual (and also audio) symphony of swing.

I only knew the Big Bad Voodoo Daddy version of Minnie The Moocher and only through coincidence did I find this and hear Cab Calloway's version... all I can say nice.

What else is there to say, you almost get nostalgia to the days when you'd sit at home on the Saturday mornings and watch cartoons till noon. Back in the worry-less days.

Perfect collaboration between the Boop and the Swing.
