Storyline

A messenger delivers an invitation to Betty Boop to come over to Grampy's house for a party and bring the gang. The delighted Betty goes down the street singing "I'm on My Way to Grampy's" and is joined by a fireman who is rescuing a damsel-in-distress but tosses her back in the burning building in favor of following Betty...anywhere; a policeman who deserts his traffic-directing at a busy intersection; and two moving men. Betty and her gang arrive at Grampy's, and Grampy shows off a few of his Rube-Goldberg inventions while serving punch-and-cake. Betty thinks the party needs a little music, so Grampy employs several of his contraptions and devices, and all hands are soon dancing to the Hoosier Hotshots' version of "Tiger Rag."

Betty Boop and Grampy (1936)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Grampy invites Betty Boop and a couple others to his house so that they can see the crazy inventions he has come up with. This includes a chandelier that comes down to serve punch, a special cake cutter and a flute that can play itself when put into a tea pot. BETTY BOOP AND GRAMPY isn't one of the better shorts in the series but there's still enough here that will keeps fans entertained. I think the highlight is a musical number that happens towards the end of the film as the music itself is quite catchy and I also thought that the little dance sequences were fun. The quality of the animation is top-notch as one would expect and I thought there was quite a bit of imagination in use and especially during the finale. There really aren't as many big laughs as one would have hoped for but there's no question that this contains some rather pre-code sexuality from Betty Boop, which was a little surprising considering this came out after the code started to be stricter.
