Storyline

Betty falls asleep doing a jigsaw puzzle and finds herself through the looking glass into a modern, urban wonderland. The shrinking potion comes from a "Shrinkola" dispenser. When most of the characters assemble, Betty sings "How Do You Do" to them. But the jabberwock steals Betty away, and everyone comes to her rescue. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Betty in Blunderland (1934)

*** (out of 4)

Fast and fun short has Betty Boop putting together a Wonderland puzzle when the rabbit comes to life and helps take her to the real place. Once there Betty walks around meeting new creatures and getting everyone in the mood to sing. BETTY IN BLUNDERLAND isn't the greatest short ever made but it's certainly a very charming one thanks in large part to the imagination of Dave Fleischer who really keeps this thing moving. I think the best moments happen towards the end once Betty shrinks down to size and enters Wonderland. There are all sorts of great images including some dancing lobsters, the Mad Hatter and even the great Humpty Dumpty makes an appearance, although I'm not sure what he has to do with Wonderland. The film also contains Betty doing a terrific music number where she sings "Everyone Says I Love You" (which IMDb lists it as being sung as "How Do You Do?"). Fans of Betty should certainly enjoy this short as the animation is top-notch and there's no question that Betty is very charming throughout.
