"Judge Betty" Doles Out Justice
27 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, Betty is having a bad day. It starts off well, with our girl singing her usual uplifting song en route to the bus stop on her way to work. However, some idiot keeps saying hello and slapping her too hard on the back. Then she gets on the bus and two busybodies have their noses in her newspaper. Then some slob blows cigar smoke in her face and then a fat lady almost sits on top of her. To cap things off, when she gets off the bus, the inconsiderate idiot in a car races by and splashes mud all over her.

Betty is still fuming at work. Apparently she works in a court room because while tiding up at the judge's desk, she dons the robe and fantasizes about taking care of these "pests." She has been muttering about "all these pests in town and I wish I was a judge and could do something about them."

Well, we then see her fantasy and what she'd like to see happen to these obnoxious, rude people. It's pretty wild, and so is the ending.

It's another solid Betty Boop cartoon, meaning fun to watch.
