Storyline

The evil, long-nosed queen asks the magic mirror in her hand who's the fairest in the land, and the mirror replies that she is. But into the queen's cave walks Betty Boop, singing that she wants to see her stepmama. Now Betty is the fairest in the land and the queen orders her beheaded. Koko and Bimbo can't bring themselves to do it. Later, Betty ends up encased in a block of ice. The Seven Dwarfs, thinking she's dead, bring her into the Mystery Cave, her final resting place. Bimbo and Koko join them. And so does the queen, who has changed herself into a witch. The clown, with Cab Calloway's voice, sings "St. James Infirmary Blues" in the weird cave full of flying skeletons and floating ghosts. Only a reversal of fortune can save Betty and the two heroes now. Written by J. Spurlin

Best of the Boop/Calloway collaborations
14 June 2000 | by (Planet of the Frogs) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful short humorous cartoon, predating the Disney feature inspired by the same folk-tale.

The Wicked Witch/Queen is jealous of Betty Boop's beauty, and orders Boop's execution. Guards Bimbo and Koko are too kind hearted to carry it out. As in "Minnie The Moocher", the scene shifts to a spooky cave where we are serenaded by the voice of Cab Calloway.

The music and action mesh beautifully, keeping the momentum strong throughout. Watch carefully for a plethora of visual jokes to the sides and behind the action.

Unfortunately, most copies of this cartoon on video were taken from 1950s television prints, which cut off part of the frame.

This is perhaps as close to perfection as the Fleischer Studios achieved. A gem.
