Betty's Show, Whole Cartoon - Very Entertaining
24 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is primarily one song-and-dance routine by Betty, but I really enjoyed the prelude, so to speak, in which she finished one act and flew in her own plane all the way over to Japan for the big number. The airplane made me laugh out loud several times, sprouting legs and running down the runway, getting ahead of itself mid-flight, etc. There were a lot of good sight gags with that plane.

Then, Betty performs the title song to a sold-out audience in Japan and leaves. The song is good and so is the presentation, with little dancing people-lamps and other props. Betty sang song "catchy" tunes in her day.

This is entertaining.....all of it.
