Happy You and Merry Me (1936)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Here we have another Betty Boop short that is high on cuteness but low on laughs. In the short, a kitten is chasing a fly (or bee) and winds up in the home of Betty where it eats too much candy and gets a belly ache. Betty asks her dog Pudgy to go to the store and get some medicine but on its way back home he's chased by the kitten's mother. HAPPY YOU AND MERRY ME isn't a very funny film and in fact I don't recall laughing a single time. It does feature Betty singing a song but even this isn't nearly as good as some of the more memorable ones from previous movies. What keeps this film moving and making it worth watching is the cuteness that it displays. We can start with the cute black kitten, which does several cute things throughout the film. This includes playing around but also towards the end when it's sick. Yes, it's still cute even when it's sick. We also have a cute looking puppy willing to help out the cat. Then, of course, there's Betty who always comes across as being cute here. So, needless to say, the cute level is quite high and makes this one worth viewing.
