Storyline

"Girl wanted," says the sign. "Top floor. Female preferred." Betty Boop sees it, but it seems so does the entire female population of the city. The top of the building bulges with applicants, but Betty wins the job from the fat, lecherous boss by sitting in his lap and singing "You'd Be Surprised." The others are dispatched through a trap door. Betty can't type, or do much of anything else, but she sure is cute. The boss chases her around the office, but Betty manages to get to the phone and call the police. The police, the army, the navy and the air force all come to her rescue. Written by J. Spurlin

Betty The 'Tease'
3 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man posts a sign on a big building: 'GIRL WANTED: Top Floor, Female Preferred." Immediately, thousands of women cram in the building and go up to see the boss. Betty stands out from the crowd, shaking her hips and getting attention from the old man. "What can you do? he asks.

She replies, in song, "Well, I'm not much in crowd but when you get me alone - yeoow - you'll be surprised." (This was pre-Code cartoon!)

Here's the next line: "I don't know how to type, but if you take me home, you'll get a surprise." She follows with more of the same. She gets the old man worked up and he immediately gets rid of the rest of the women by pulling a level and they all drop the ground level!

Betty keeps singing to the guy with these sexy, come-on lyrics so, of course, she is hired. Minutes later, when he makes a pass at her, she calls the cops. (Women!!!) After that is some of the wildest, most absurd scenes I've ever watched in a cartoon with a really crazy ending.

This is a totally off-the-wall but very entertaining Betty Boop cartoon, one that certainly would not have been made from 1934 on, for either Code reasons up to 1967 and then for political correctness bias since then.
