Storyline

Betty Boop is performing in a stage melodrama with a pretty-boy for a romantic hero and the usual slimy moustache-twirler for a villain. The villain, of course, wants Betty for his own. He ties the hero to a tree and then goes to work tempting Betty. He shows her an enormous diamond with a tiny light bulb inside to make it light up. He shows her a plate of oysters, each with a pearl inside. He shows her a fur coat that moths eat up the moment she rejects it. Nothing works. He resorts to grabbing her and throwing her inside his hot-air balloon, where he hopes to escape from the pretty-boy hero. Written by J. Spurlin

Simple but watchable Betty Boop
23 March 2006 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'No! No! A Thousand Times No!!' is not the most memorable animated short starring Betty Boop, but it has enough moment of entertainment to like it. It starts with Betty Boop and Freddie starring in a play (we only hear the audience from time to time), with Freddie showing his affection for Betty. A villain in a balloon enters the stage taking Freddie away and trying to get Betty for himself. She sings "No! No! A thousand times no!!" to him.

The first two minutes are pretty standard here. There is some comedy in the appearance of the villain. The second part where the villain fights Freddie and takes Betty in his balloon is pretty good with some nice, once again, surrealistic images. Of course with unique voice of Mae Questel. An enjoyable cartoon.
