Storyline

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 Guy Bellinger

Betty Boop is one of my personal favorite cartoon characters, so I jump at the chance to see anything she's featured in. This cartoon follows in her typical style, but it has an indescribable air of originality. The man plot is that she and her friends are demonstrating an assortment of bogus inventions. When a sewing machine goes nutty, it's up to them to save the day and how they do it will have you applauding.
