Comic strip character The Little King, bored at the opera, sneaks over to the vaudeville house to see (and join) Betty's Wild West Show. But the Queen tracks him down... Written by

Betty Boop is performing on stage while The Little King is in the audience trying out a few new things. He ends up falling for Betty but his wife isn't going to let that happen. I guess some would attack me for saying this but I really didn't find The Little King character to be all that entertaining. The film gets off to a pretty good start with the King seeing a man selling pretzels so he decides to buy all of them up so that he can sell them himself. Sadly this is where the entertainment stopped as we see the King getting into all sorts of trouble and of course he eventually runs into Betty. Fleischer and company were clearly using this short to try and sell The Little King character onto people but overall I just don't think the film worked very well. The King just isn't interesting enough to take any of the spotlight away from Betty and another problem is that there's really no funny material here. As you'd expect, the animation is top-notch as usual and Boop is as cute as ever but this here just isn't enough to really sell the movie.
