Riding the Rails is another cute Betty Boop/Pudgy cartoon I watched on YouTube
11 December 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is another latter-day (read: post-Code) Betty Boop cartoon I watched on YouTube. It also features her puppy dog, Pudgy. Betty takes the train to work and tries to leave Pudgy behind but, unbeknownst to her, the dog goes along for the ride...Plenty of funny gags concerning automatic train doors, a woman hitting a man after Pudgy touches her leg, a heavyset man crowding some people on a bench, and the train itself making a face. There's also a thrilling chase concerning Pudgy and the train that results in one final gag in the present Betty gives him. In summary, if you don't mind the cleaned-up version of Betty here and can't get enough of her dog, I highly recommend Riding the Rails.
