Bimbo is a fortune teller; Koko is his doorman; Betty is a customer. Bimbo sees a ride on a steamship, a wreck, Betty stranded on a tropical island. Betty then gets trapped inside a haunted grass hut; Bimbo gets her plea for help, and comes to her rescue. Back at the fortune telling booth, Bimbo reveals himself, but the ghosts come out of the crystal ball and start chasing them.Written by

"Is My Palm Read" is a Betty Boop cartoon that does what these cartoons do best--defying reality with strange anthropomorphic scenes and goofy jokes. It is far from normal....weird and well worth seeing.
Betty goes to a palm reader and what you see next is supposedly what will happen to her. Betty is somewhere on a haunted tropical island where lots of ghosts play tricks on her and try to scare poor Betty. But, along comes her hero, Bimbo the dog, and he bravely defeats the ghosts.
While the whole palm reading angle was really unnecessary, the rest of the cartoon is great fun. Extremely well animated like all Fleischer cartoons, this one also has lots of nice jokes and is the sort of silly far I liked best in Betty Boop cartoons.
