When I downloaded this film for free from archive.org, it indicated this was a so-called 'banned cartoon'. Well, I really cannot see why this would be the case. I know that the Pre-Code version of Betty Boop (before mid-1934) was sexier than the later one---though so many Boop cartoons feature this sexier cartoon and weren't listed as banned on the site. Or, perhaps there was something objectionable and that portion was excised. All I know is that I noticed nothing objectionable in this cute cartoon.

The cartoon, not surprisingly, is about Betty Boop having a Halloween party. It goes from her and some friends preparing, the party itself and a nasty gorilla* crashing the party and terrorizing everyone. Fortunately, like all Boop cartoons, it ends on a positive note.

All in all, this is a fun cartoon. A bit dated perhaps but still fun. Like all these cartoons, the animation quality is terrific and there is a wacky sense of humor that was pure 1930s fun. If you do see the cartoon, you might notice an NRA symbol at the beginning—this was to indicate the film was in compliance with the National Recovery Act—a piece of legislation that was ruled unconstitutional and so was only BRIEFLY seen tacked on to the beginning of some films in 1933.

*This is the same gorilla that was the villain in "The Herring Murder Case" which debuted two years earlier.
