Exceptionally well animated but perhaps a bit too cute for some viewers.
12 March 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"You're Not Built That Way" is a cartoon from the Fleischer Brothers that features Betty Boop and her dog Pudgy. Pudgy is a really cute character, though I could imagine some folks thinking he's a bit too cute!

The cartoon begins with Pudgy going outside and seeing a mean bulldog walking about--like it owned the neighborhood. This dog is tough and rather scary--and little Pudgy wants to be just like him. However, he's small and adorable and about as scary as a bunny (and I am not talking about the rabbits in "Night of the Lepus" or "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"!). Eventually, Betty comes to Pudgy's rescue and sings the title song.

The best thing about this short is the animation. While it's in black & white, the details (especially with the exquisite backgrounds) are amazing. A nice little cartoon short--it's slightly above average for the series and is quite fun.
