'When My Ship Comes In' is an expression that means 'when I finally strike it rich'--and that's is exactly what happens in this cartoon. Betty bets on a million to one horse and it wins. For the rest of the cartoon, Betty uses her money to make life better for everyone around her. Some of these methods are pretty cute--such as what she does for the old ladies living in the retirement home. Additionally, she opens up a refuse for cute animals, throws tons of money to folks in the streets and build towns--all for just a million. Actually, this would have probably taken a billion--even back then! There isn't a lot in the way of plot--mostly just a catchy tune and lots of gags involving money. Not a bad cartoon but certainly one lacking depth and overall it seems more like a piece of fluff. A nice piece of fluff, mind you.
