Betty Boop and her friends Koko the Clown and Bimbo have been hired to demonstrate a series of crazy gadgets at the Big Invention Show. After a more or less successful presentation of fanciful appliances such as an anti-slurp soup silencer or spot remover that removes the spot.. and the cloth!, a revolutionary sewing-machine goes wild and Betty and Bimbo can only find safety in flight. Paradoxically it is another invention that rescues them, a helicopter-umbrella. Written by
Betty and Bimbo are working at a tent show where new inventions are being shown off. Everything's going fine until a self threading sewing machine comes to life and starts sewing everything up. This film is short and sweet, which makes it worth sitting through at least once. The first part of the film isn't the strongest but we do get to see some rather unique inventions with the best being the egg hatcher then cooker. The second half was the best as the sewing machine does all sorts of damage including sewing up a river and a duck, which then flies off with various other creatures sewed to it. As with most Fleischer cartoons, the animation is great with a lot of imagination behind it.
