Enjoyable and a bit cruel!
18 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the mid-1930s, some of Betty Boop's cartoons were amazingly cruel. While most were happy little cartoons with singing and cute animals and anthropomorphic backgrounds, a few, like "Judge for a Day" and "Be Human" were rather vicious and focused on Betty dispensing her own form of justice on evil doers. In "Be Human", a vicious animal abuser (and I do mean vicious) is himself beaten and abused by Betty and Grampy! Here in "Judge for a Day", Betty seems in a very grouchy mood--made more so by annoying folks who are more thoughtless than evil. Later, Betty sneaks into the court, dresses up like a judge and sings a song about how much fun it would be to torment these people!! Talk about sadistic! It's made worse when the crowds hear her song and decide she WOULD make a perfect judge! While is is awfully cruel, I must admit I, too, would like to see a few of these folks get theirs and there is something satisfying about her puritanical rant about gum chewers and the like! Weird and funny--with the typically beautiful Fleischer Studio animation.
