Great music
29 March 2002 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

The Betty Boop cartoons with guest artists are among the best. These are almost as good as the Cab Calloways..... better musically, as they feature Armstrong near his "Hot Fives" peak. The story line, about Betty, Koko and Bimbo on Safari and Louis cartooned as the cannibal chief is weak, but worth it for Louis doing the title song.
