Thank goodness they don't make 'em like this any more!

"Any Little Girl That's a Nice Little Girl" is a wonderful example of an excellent cartoon studio (Fleischer Brothers) making an absolutely dreadful short. Back in the early 1940s, the studio made quite a few musical cartoons complete with a bouncing ball that was to encourage the audiences at the theater to sing along. Thank goodness this concept was short-lived, as the films are all about as entertaining as watching dead fish float by! The plot, though there is very little, involves a jerky cat who is adored by lots of kitties. However, he won't take any fat ones or skinny ones and goes out after a cat that sure looks a lot like Betty Boop. A bit later, they show a closeup of Lulubelle and it actually is Boop--or at least Boop circa 1931 when she still had a few doggy features--such as droopy ears. None of this is interesting and a bit sexist. Then, having almost nothing to do with the cartoon, the bouncing ball began and a song droned on and on. None of it was funny or interesting in any way--apart from giving folks today a chance to see the evolution of Betty.
