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
A Sewing Machine Gone Amok? Where Else But In Cartoons?
This was my first look in over 40 years at a Betty Boop cartoon.....and I was impressed. It was pretty funny and very "inventive," pun intended. This really wasn't her style, either, as I have since discovered (singing and dancing was her forte.)
Our girl is outside a circus tent, playing the pipe organ (with little pigs in the inside of it blowing on the pipes). Then we see all the tickets collected the folks running into the tent to see all the inventions. Betty and others demonstrate some of them, many of which were clever and fun to watch, from "soup silencers" to fried eggs right from the hen!
One of the inventions, a sewing machine thread-makers, goes berserk and zips up everything inside and outside the tent, all over town and it's a lot of fun to watch.
