Essentially a PUDGY cartoon, with Betty along for a Bumpy Ride
11 April 2005 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

This cartoon showcases the decline and fall of the Fleischer animation machine, as it essentially uses Betty Boop to give a already-clichéd plot (Pudgy the dog guards against cagey crows) a boost. The boost isn't quite enough, though the cartoon has its amusing moments.

The cartoon is interesting in that Betty's design is different--she is no longer the "boop-boop a doop" flapper of her past--as the Depression hit long and hard, the world changed...and eventually so did Betty. She is taller, narrower, and more realistic looking--this is an indication more than anything that the Fleischer studio had evolved away from its anarchy-riddled past efforts into what would be more mature (but also more boring and safe) efforts.

What's saddest is that they use Betty only as a gimmick to showcase Pudgy. A shame.
