Betty Is Stunning
9 December 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In this cartoon, Betty Boop innocently works in her penthouse garden. The guys in the lab across the street are doing dangerous experiments (actually they are regulars, Bimbo and Koko). Instead of paying attention to their work, they are staring at Betty in her skimpy outfit. Soon, a creation of theirs becomes the villain. Some would say the regular male characters are worse.
