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

Betty Boop and a fly
1 May 2004 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

'Swat the Fly' is a nice cartoon featuring Betty Boop and Pudgy the Pup. While Betty (voice of Mae Questel) is baking a cake and Pudgy is sleeping a fly enters their lives. They are both distracted and even annoyed by the little creature so they will not rest before they get him. Especially Betty keeps throwing stuff at him.

Like I said, this is a nice cartoon but nothing more than that. The animation looks quite normal and actually the whole story does. Therefore it is not very original, in story or animation, and that is too bad. It is one of the things I always like with the Betty Boop cartoons. Still, I had fun watching this and that is the most important thing.
