Betty Boop and her friends Koko the Clown and Bimbo have been hired to demonstrate a series of crazy gadgets at the Big Invention Show. After a more or less successful presentation of fanciful appliances such as an anti-slurp soup silencer or spot remover that removes the spot.. and the cloth!, a revolutionary sewing-machine goes wild and Betty and Bimbo can only find safety in flight. Paradoxically it is another invention that rescues them, a helicopter-umbrella.Written by
Only my second Betty Boop 'short' or 'cartoon', and so far I'm still not impressed. Maybe I only really liked her in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Despite the fact she's barely more than a cameo.
This is another basic cartoon, although it's not quite what she normally does (singing and dancing). This time it's all about inventions - a pipe organ with pigs that blow into the tubes when they're squeezed, a hen that lays eggs which are then fried, and a sewing machine that runs amok, and sews everything up in sight. It's up to Betty & her friends to save the day. Why is she still moving when she should be still?!
