OUT OF THE INKWELL format returns, with middling results
19 April 2005 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

MORE PEP is a cartoon that proves to have a lot of promise, but fails ultimately to be anything other than slightly above ordinary.

The plot starts rather dramatically--a narrator, "Uncle Max" (Max Fleischer, in a cameo voice-over) boldly announces the latest stunt to be performed by Betty Boop's dog--unfortunately, he's too sleepy to do anything. Betty comes to the rescue, singing an original song "You Gotta Have Pep" while shipping up a vitamin-fortified brew that happens to run amok, spraying the energetic drink everywhere BUT where it is supposed to be.

Once the dog fails to perform, the old OUT OF THE INKWELL process appears, for the first time in years--Betty pops out of the ink bottle, offering to help out Uncle Max complete the cartoon. The use of archival footage starts out creative, but runs out of steam quickly, and the INKWELL concept is abandoned until the very end.

A neat cultural artifact, and a decent cartoon--but mostly a curiosity.
