Judge for a Day is pretty entertaining for a post-Code Betty Boop
Just discovered this post-Code Max Fleischer Betty Boop cartoon on YouTube. You can tell it's after the time the Production Code really went into effect since Betty is singing about being happy and not about sexuality. Also she's more conservatively dressed for work as a court stenographer and not as a nightclub entertainer with her garter on one of her legs. And the people that annoy her are not lechers but bus passengers of which two try to read her paper, one lady rudely takes her seat, and one man blows smoke in her face! So when she arrives early in an empty courthouse, Betty imagines what would happen if she were judge. The next scene takes place in a zoo where many of these annoying people get what's coming to them! That's all I'll say except there's actually something of a happy ending for Betty and the townspeople who cheer her on. So while this isn't the standard Betty Boop we all know and love, Judge for a Day does still provide some of her spark in this post-Code entry.
