Popeye begins his movie career by singing his theme song, demonstrating his strength at a carnival, dancing the hula with Betty Boop, pummeling Bluto, eating his spinach and saving Olive Oyl from certain doom on the railroad tracks.
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

It's hard to imagine that they crammed so much of the story into only about 6 minutes!
"Betty in Blunderland" is a visual delight. Although it is a takeoff of "Alice in Wonderland", it actually bears more similarity to the 1933 film version than the book--probably because BOTH were made by Paramount Studios. And, hard as it might seem, they actually managed to cram a lot into only about 6 minutes! The cartoon begins with Betty up late working on an Alice in Wonderland puzzle. Suddenly, the white rabbit pops out of the puzzle and disappears through the mirror--and Betty follows. What comes next are lots of characters and highlights from the story. As far as the story goes, there isn't a lot of it--it's more a visual feast as you watch all the craziness on the screen. And, combined with great animation, there is ample reason to give this one a look.
