Storyline

Betty Boop appears on stage as the heroine of a melodrama, complete with stage scenery and mustache twirling villain, Heeza Rat. Betty hasn't the money to pay the mortgage on her farm and the black-hearted scoundrel insists that the curly-haired lass must accept his proposal of marriage or she and her animals will be cast out. Betty's only hope is Fearless Fred, a handsome lumberjack, who must come to the rescue when her dastardly nemesis ties her up in a tank rapidly filling with water. Written by David Bassler

Betty Boop meets stage melodrama
11 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of the best Betty Boop cartoons, not by a long shot. 'She Wronged Him Right' is still a very good cartoon in many ways however, despite having a slightly slushy happy ending that could be seen coming from miles away.

Fleischer were responsible for some brilliant cartoons, some of them still among my favourites. Their visual style was often stunning and some of the most imaginative and ahead of its time in animation. The character of Betty Boop, one of their most famous and prolific characters, may not be for all tastes and sadly not as popular now, but her sex appeal was quite daring for the time and to me there is an adorable sensual charm about her. That charm, sensuality and adorable factor is not lost anywhere here.

As ever in a Betty Boop cartoon, the animation is still incredibly good, the detail is immaculate, there are the typical imaginative moments (especially with the toys) and everything is beautifully drawn. Every bit as good and even better is the music, which is full of energy and lyrical elegance, and accessible to anybody. The supporting characters are entertaining, archetypal (especially the villain) but that's embraced in a cartoon paying homage to stage melodrama that could be seen as old-fashioned now.

'She Wronged Him Right' is a very funny and clever cartoon, though there are Betty Boop cartoons more surreal and more risqué. The voice acting is fine.

In conclusion, a very good cartoon if not among Betty Boop's best. 8/10 Bethany Cox
