Well done little cartoon
2 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I found it curious that a cartoon made in 1931 would show a closed circuit television setup. Would have been very futuristic at that time, although TV existed it was not really too far out of the lab. There were no commercial stations broadcasting or anything like that. All in all a nice little cartoon although as mentioned elsewhere, it's really a pre Betty Boop sort of female character. One thing I did find out, U.M. & M TV Corp bought the rights to the Fleisher cartoons in the 1950's, long after the cartoons were orginally made. There was no U.M. & M TV corp in 1931 (or 1932) when this was made.
