Storyline

Pudgy the Pup is sleeping peacefully; and Betty Boop is happily making batter. But a pesky housefly disturbs their quiet day. Soon Betty is throwing batter everywhere in the house, hoping to catch the fly; but all she does it break her windows, destroy her glass cabinets and splatter the entire house with the gooey mixture. Meanwhile, Pudgy, hoping to catch the fly himself, had jumped into the dough she was rolling. And now he's stuck in it. Written by J. Spurlin

Annoying, Aggravating & Frustrating!
7 April 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Betty is happily baking something in her kitchen at home when a pesky fly interrupts things. It won't let her or her little dog alone, tormenting both - especially the dog.

I found this to be a very un-entertaining Boop cartoon because (1) it wasn't funny; (2) the fly was so irritating - going in little Pudgy's ear twice and torturing him; (3) it was frustrating as nothing could be done about it.

Sorry, I just didn't see any humor in this one. I was almost as aggravated as Betty and her dog! This was not the usual fun Betty Boop cartoon.
