Betty Boop and Little Jimmy (1936)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another rather bizarre short finds Betty Boop working out to keep her cute figure but then part of an exercise machine goes crazy so Little Jimmy is sent out to find an electrician. BETTY BOOP AND LITTLE JIMMY isn't a classic in the series but it's certainly worth watching since it contains some rather bizarre moments. The more of these Betty Boop shorts I watch the more I notice how downright weird some of them were. This one here manages to be entertaining in a bizarre way because it gives us three sides to Betty. At first we just see her typical figure but there are jokes towards the end where we see her in other ways. First we see her as a a very skinny woman, which is what Olive Oyl would look like in a few years. We then see her as an obese woman, which will certainly catch your eye. There really aren't any laughs to be found here but these alternate views of Betty certainly make it worth viewing. The animation is top-notch as is the imagination being shown but another big thumbs up goes to the song that Betty sings while working out.
