Storyline

A messenger delivers an invitation to Betty Boop to come over to Grampy's house for a party and bring the gang. The delighted Betty goes down the street singing "I'm on My Way to Grampy's" and is joined by a fireman who is rescuing a damsel-in-distress but tosses her back in the burning building in favor of following Betty...anywhere; a policeman who deserts his traffic-directing at a busy intersection; and two moving men. Betty and her gang arrive at Grampy's, and Grampy shows off a few of his Rube-Goldberg inventions while serving punch-and-cake. Betty thinks the party needs a little music, so Grampy employs several of his contraptions and devices, and all hands are soon dancing to the Hoosier Hotshots' version of "Tiger Rag."

Grampy's inventions are a delight; Betty has little to do
29 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Grampy sends Betty Boop a letter inviting her to a party and asking her to bring the gang. Two piano movers, a fireman and a traffic cop all drop what they're doing to join in. Grampy's various contraptions, and his novel uses for household objects, make his place loads of fun. He even manages to improvise music with an electric fan, a tea kettle, a pair of gloves and a piece of pipe from his oven. Everyone has a good time, but Grampy proves to be the most youthful of the bunch.

Grampy is not a particularly appealing (or unappealing) character; but his inventions are always very funny. Betty has little to do in this cartoon, except attract men to Grampy's party. By the time this was made, the censors had de-Boop-ified Betty: reducing her from a cute little tease to a syrupy sweet goody-two-shoes. At least here she gets to inspire the lust of men willing to cause catastrophe by neglecting their work.
