Fair....though you can sure tell Betty has changed.

Because this is one of the last Betty Boop cartoons by Fleischer Brothers Studio, she looks different. In the last couple years, the studio updated her--making Betty taller, less sexy and more contemporary. So don't be surprised when you see this.

This cartoon finds Betty working at a restaurant. Here she is overworked and hates her job, so she's thrilled when she gets a letter telling her that she's been hired by a local nursery. At first, the job looks fine and Betty is quite happy, but at nap time, the kids act like they are re-enacting the story "Lord of the Flies" and they run amok. In the end, a happy Betty has returned to her old job.

Not a lot of laughs here. Nice animation but that's really about all.
