Betty Boop and her pup, Pudgy, board a ski-train for a winter sports resort. Betty goes skating, but is annoyed by a skier. Meanwhile, Pudgy had been playing and prancing on the ice and gets marooned on a cake that breaks off and floats toward a waterfall. The skier picks up Betty and they rescue Pudy. Written by

Thrills and Chills was a pretty amusing Betty Boop/Pudgy cartoon
Just watched this Max Fleischer Betty Boop cartoon on YouTube. It's the last one made in New York before the move to Miami. It's also one of several that has the little pup Pudgy as a co-star, in fact the full title card says, "A Betty Boop Cartoon/Pudgy in Thrills and Chills". Betty and her dog are on a train to a ski resort. During much of that time, a man who's smitten with Betty keeps saying in his goofy way, "Hey pretty lady, give me a kiss." The Boop girl keeps resisting. She also does a lot of skating (this sequence is rotoscoped). Pudgy himself has some cute adventures on the ice before being carried away on an ice floe. It's up to Betty and that goofy guy to rescue him...Entirely animated by one man-Roland Crandall-Thrills and Chills provide many of those gags in which many inanimate objects come to life. No greats shakes but amusing enough for my tastes.
