A rare chance to see the Little King.
22 September 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

'The Little King' was a very successful cartoon from the 1930s-1970s (when the creator, Otto Soglow, died). When it debuted, it ran in "The New Yorker" magazine and was also made into cartoons by the Van Buren Studio. However, by 1936, the strip was now in Hearst newspapers and made one appearance with FLeischer Brothers Studio in "Betty Boop and the Little King". Unlike the strip, in this Betty Boop cartoon, the King actually speaks a bit.

The cartoon begins with the King at a performance of the world's worst (and largest chested) singer. He's utterly bored and sneaks off to the Burlesque theater to watch Betty Boop perform. He has a lovely time--that is, until the Queen discovers he's gone and goes to bring him back! All in all, this is a very cute cartoon. It also features some of the best animation the Fleischers could muster--with some great 3-D effects. Well done and well worth your time.
