Trivia

The Peters clan mistake Betty for one of the Hatfields. This is an allusion to the legendary Hatfield-McCoy feud from American Civil War times, which was fought on and off until the 1890s on the Kentucky-West Virginia border. See more »

Musical Mountaineers (1939)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Betty Boop is out driving in the country when her car runs out of gas in Feud County when she goes to a home to seek help only to find the Hatfields wanting to fight. There's really not too much going on in regards to story but this short remains watchable thanks in large part to the second half when we're treated to a rather fun song and dance sequence that gets Betty dancing and the rednecks playing music. Of course, before this happens we get some backwoods humor in the way the country folks all load up their guns when they see Betty coming towards their house. They even make her dance by shooting at her feet, which was another good sequence. There's no question that the highlight comes in the second half when we get the song and dance number, which is a lot of fun and will leave you with a smile on your face. I thought the short contained quite a bit of imagination and especially during the various drawings of the country people. All of them had a rather fun look that helped keep the viewer interested in what was going on.
