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 and the Little King was another entertaining Max Fleischer cartoon
After Van Beuren decided not to renew their contract with King Features Syndicate for their comic strip, "The Little King", Max and Dave Fleischer decided to try Otto Soglow's creation as a potential star for their series by testing him with their star Betty Boop. Here, his majesty and his queen are at the opera which the king is bored of to death. So he goes further down the street (where we see the wonderful tabletop 3-D backgrounds the Fleischers were starting to use at this time) to see Ms. Boop in a cowgirl outfit with horse in tow. In no time at all, the king sells pretzels and performs with Betty and the horse. I'll stop there and say how funny and entertaining this animated short was. The only demerit here is the voice used for this childlike king but that's it. So on that note, I highly recommend Betty Boop and the Little King.
