Storyline

Betty's young cousin, Buzzy, takes the train to visit Betty. On the train, she's helpful, in a bratty kind of way, using her chewing gum to stick on a sleeping man's toupee, watering the flowers in a lady's hat, etc. At Betty's house, she sees the boys next door playing marbles and tries to join in; she proves better at things like walking on a fence than the boys, and even fares well with the goat the boys unleash.

I can see why Buzzy never became a regular character.

According to IMDb this cartoon was assumed lost, but you can watch it for free at archive.org--along with many other Betty Boop cartoons.

"Buzzy Boop" features Betty's bratty young cousin, Buzzy. Buzzy is nothing like Betty, as she tries very hard to be annoying and is quite young--lacking the slutty qualities of her older cousin. The cartoon begins with Buzzy annoying folks on the train as well as riding on the roof on her way to Betty's house. Once there, she meets up with the neighborhood boys who take an immediate disliking towards her (no surprises here). So, they release a dangerous goat(???) and it runs amok--until Buzzy saves the day.

All in all, the character of Buzzy is a bit like Popeye and a complete brat rolled into one. As this was NOT a pleasant combination, I could see why Buzzy's career never took off. Not particularly enjoyable.
