Nearing The End Of A Great Run For Betty Boop
9 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This would be considered politically-incorrect but is not mean-spirited in the slightest. It's fault is not the lack of "correctness;" it's that it simply is not funny nor entertaining. Even Betty has bad cartoons once in a while. This is one of them and probably is a good example of why her "career" ended this year. The writing had gotten very weak and our girl lost much of her appeal. It certainly wasn't up to Betty's standards of excellent in the rest of the decade.

Betty's got a "swing band" and a car full of instruments. Driving down the road, she stops at an Indian Reservation where there is a sign post that says: "Wigwam Beauty Shop: Try Our Scalp Treatment."

While Betty is dickering to a buy a tom-tom, some the Indians steal the instruments out of her automobile. Betty sees them, but it's upset. She observes them trying to figure out what these things do and says, "Aw, aren't they cute?" Later, she dances with one of the males who seems infatuated with her until his wife catches him. Really nothing much goes on but silly dancing.
