Pudgy Not Up To Par
24 August 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This really isn't a Betty Boop cartoon. It's really a "Pudgy" cartoon, featuring her little dog. There's a big difference in humor. This really isn't funny and, of course, it doesn't have the music you'd get with one of Betty's cartoons. Betty usually sings a catchy song or two.

Basically, all it is, is Pudgy getting teed off by watching a little monkey eat the food in the house and do other shenanigans (there's an old word, for you). Betty was listening to an organ grinder down below her apartment and invited the monkey upstairs to meet her dog. That was her mistake. While she goes back down to barter with the organ grinder to purchase the beast, chaos ensues upstairs with the monkey.

Pudgy thinks all is finally well at the end until Betty has some bad news for him!
