Odd Ending To So-So Animated Short
8 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Betty is exercising and singing "Keep Your Girlish Figure," as she does with lyrics such as "roll your eyes and keep away from pies," and "if you find that you're too plump, takes off these extra bumps with a hop and a skip and a jump." She was ahead of her time, considering aerobic exercise.

"Little Jimmy" is exercising along with her but makes a big mistake, putting the exercise horse into too high a gear. It goes off its bearings, crashes into Betty who is stuck on her machine. Jimmy goes for help, but like a lot of little kids, is distracted with various outside. Betty, meanwhile, is whittling away to anorexic proportions!

The ending to this is very bizarre with the message being if you laugh you'll grow fat. Go figure. Not horrible, but not one of Betty's best.
