Betty Goes to Hell
10 June 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Red Hot Mamma (1934)

*** (out of 4)

Highly entertaining short has Betty Boop growing cold so she starts a fire and decides to sleep by it. This turns the heat way up and before she knows it Betty is in Hell. This is a devilish little Pre-code short from Paramount that has some terrific animation as well as a creative streak that makes for a lot of fun. There's no question that the entire Hell sequence is the highlight and there are some very creative jokes throughout. One such thing is when we see freshmen devils getting their horns as well as another section where the Devil goes full blast by turning the heat way up to get to Betty. If you're a fan of the series then this one here certainly ranks as one of the better ones.
