Not officially released as a Betty Boop short, but that's Betty and the early Bimbo. Bimbo stayed a canine throughout, while Betty became human. Bimbo comes across as a less than likable sort here, but then neither was Barnacle Bill the sailor (pay attention to the lyrics of the sea chantey). Bimbo was a more or less marginal character, for my tastes, although he was head and shoulders above most of the supporting characters in later years. Koko the Clown was the most effective bit player they used in the Betty Boop series. Bimbo spends most of his time making eyes and sighing at Betty in most of his appearances. The later design on the character was a marked improvement over the original character they show here. This is on the Betty Boop collection that's well worth having. This short is nothing special, but worth a look once.
