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 Is A Hoot!
6 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Betty gets a telegram from Grampy to come over to his house "for a little party" and "come right over and bring the gang," he adds. "Ohh," she shrieks, and puts on her hat and heads right over. As she is singing about "Gramy's house" while strutting down the street, she is joined by people who overhear her lyrics and tag along. They literally drop everything (i.e. piano) and follow her.

The rest of the cartoon shows the amazing inventions in Grampy's house and, believe me, they are a hoot to see and hear (such as the clever way he produces music for the party.)

This is great stuff - a "feel-good" cartoon, if I ever saw one.
