A bit too saccharine for my taste...
20 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Pudgy and the Lost Kitten" is one of the final Betty Boop cartoons made by the Fleischer Brothers--the series wrapping up in 1939. And, in this film you can see that much of the edge of the earlier Betty Boop cartoons is missing. It begins with Betty's dog, Pudgy, seeing a hungry kitten outside. He feels sorry for it and brings it home—but soon the friendship between Pudgy and the kitten sours, as the kitten eats EVERYTHING—including poor Pudgy's food. Later, Pudgy goes out looking for the kitten's mother—so hopefully he can get rid of the little pest.

As I said in the summary, this one is a bit too saccharinely sweet for me. Missing is an edge and in its place is cute animation and cutesy characters—something that make for a relatively bland cartoon. The animation, though black & white, is quite nice but the story is a bit on the thin side. Worth seeing if you are a die-hard Betty Boop fan—otherwise you could do a lot better.
