A bit thin on plot.
21 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is really more of a music video than anything else. Like many of these such shorts, it begins with a brief look at the band performing--in this case Cab Calloway and His Orchestra. Now I like Calloway, though this song is not exactly "Minnie the Moocher".

As far as the cartoon goes, there really is not much in the way of plot. Betty Boop goes into the wilderness and meets the Old Man of the Mountain. This guy is about ten feet tall and is voiced by Calloway. She and this odd creature sing together a bit, then the guy gets very grabby and chases poor Betty. Ultimately the forest creatures come to her rescue.

The animation, like all the Fleischer Brothers cartoons, is wonderful. The song, not bad at all. But together there still isn't enough--there needed to be more humor and, above all, more plot. Interesting but not much more.
