the strangest cartoon I have EVER seen
30 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

If you're a fan of Fleischer cartoons, you'll probably really enjoy Betty Boop, M.D. The animation is clever and the cartoon is surprisingly funny and unpredictable. Betty Boop, who I've always found to be the least interesting element of Betty Boop cartoons, has a fairly small role in this one. The high points of the cartoon are the truly bizarre things that happen to the townspeople that take the medicine (an old man becomes a giant baby, a white baby turns into a old, gruff black jazz singer, etc.). But people used to the more comprehensible cartoons of Disney and Warner Brothers, especially young children, may find this surreal and unsettling.
