Enjoyable nonsense.
31 March 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the last of the original Betty Boop cartoons. It's pretty obvious this is the case when you watch, as Betty had undergone a recent makeover--to 'de-bustify' her and make her taller and more modern. As far as the content goes, however, it's pretty typical of many Boop cartoons.

Betty arrives at an Indian reservation and meets the locals. The Indians are mostly a bunch of ignorant rubes who mistake Betty's musical instruments for other devices--such as a saxophone being a pipe and a kettle drum being a giant pot. It's all rather patronizing...but fun. My favorite part is the Indian man who keeps trying to sneak away with Betty--with his jealous wife ALWAYS catching him. Overall, well animated but not especially memorable.
