Grampy wants to take Betty Boop out for a ride in his roadster. But Betty had a wild party the night before, and now she has to clean up. Grampy tells her to get ready, and he'll take care of everything. And he does. After wearing his thinking cap for only a few moments, he figures out exactly what to do. From using the player piano to press clothes to tying gloves to an electric fan and letting them dust the house, Grampy's ways are fast, efficient and fun. And in no time, with methods that range from the simple to the Rube Goldberg-esqe, the house is clean.Written by
Betty wakes up in bed when her pet canary spills water on her from taking his early birdbath. "Oooh, good morning, Canary," says Betty as stretches in her nightgown and then shrieks when she looks at the rest of her house. "Wow, what a mess. I forgot all about it. What a swell party, though!!! The place is in shambles. Yes, it must have really been a wild party.
Well, in no time she's up, dressed and singing "I've got those housecleaning blues." The lyrics are very funny. Things get worse in the house when tables collapse, dishes break and Betty almost gets knocked out with her own broom.
Then we see "Grampy" driving down the street in his sleek roadster. He drives up to Betty's house, honks the horn and discovers his friend can't go riding with him today because she has too much housecleaning to do.
Well, you know Grampy - the wizard of inventions (most of which are extremely humorous) will save the day with more of his gadget ideas. "Just leave this to me," he says while he puts his thinking cap on (literally). Before you know it, he's figured out fantastic ways to clean the house.
Grampy's the best. His inventions are so clever, so much fun to watch that I love it when I see him in a Betty Boop cartoon! Not only does he always solve Betty's problems but he does it while dancing, which also is funny.
