Editorial Reviews

Betty Boop's cartoon series lasted from 1930-1939, and a colorized version was re-released in the 60s and 70s. Betty Boop was a charming vixen that had it allshe was sweet and funny, she could sing and dance, and because of this, she has managed to boop-oop-a-doop her way into the hearts of thousands of people all around the world.

I thought something was up when the play list on the disk didn't match what I had read in some of the reviews. Previous reviews of this disk mentioned "Snow White" and "Cab Calloway". Some referred to pre-censorship material (the crack down happened in 1934). Then I looked at the disk itself. There is a copyright date of 2007, well after some of these reviews were written. Bottom line: the disk contains NONE of the pre-Hayes censorship titles. No Cab, no Louis Armstrong, no Snow White, no Old Man of the Mountain. So if those are the titles you're after, this isn't the disk for you.

It'a hard to complain much about this DVD, especially at the price of $4.98.

I wouldnt pay more than $12 for this, but it is a good succinct collection

of many musical BBs, and a little bit of racy, anti-establishment, and sexist

material, but done with such aplomb that only a freak would mind it.

The animation is truly amazing. I knew Snow White was good, but the others

are just as incredible. My only complaint would be that the first cartoon is

a compilation episode about Betty's rise, something that should be at the end

of the disc. When it comes on first, its a foggy print with mixed animation and

live action AND its a 'clip' episode. It totally gives the wrong impression of the

whole DVD, which immediately kicks in to crisp, beautifully contrasted and

sharp B&W on the second cartoon, "I'll be glad when you're dead.."

The appearances by Cab Calloway AND Louis Armstrong are impossible to beat

if you have any taste for jazz at all. Recent music videos employt animation,

but its rare to have such a great soundtrack of real historic talent in a cartoon.

When the cartoon isnt sheerly artistic, its very loose and just chill. Its not

grating like so many cartoons can become for adults. The supporting characters

are amazing, and the Tin Soldiers episode in which Betty is a toy is astounding.

The looking glass episode as well is absolutely surreal. You just cant believe the

labor that they put into the detailing of these cartoons and the kind of smoothly

warping motion effects that would probably take digital animators longer with

worse results. This disc will educate and entertain you for 85 minutes.

This is only a sloice, but its of the best ones. Five stars at this price.

Amazingly, this disc has some of the musical Betties made before the Hays Office made them put a dress on her. This is the only in-print collection with any of this material...it's made from old TV prints but the quality is pretty good. Well worth the price.

A collection of nicely preserved cartoons, most from the early '30s. Music by Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway and the Royal Samoans! Some material not politically correct but if you can lighten up enough to enjoy it, you will. The best compilation that I've seen yet.

Like anyone else who is perusing this product, I am most anxious for someone to lovingly place the Betty Boop collection out on DVD. It is gratifying to find a disc that contains most of the notable collaborations between Fleischer and contemporary pop stars, including Cab Calloway and Louis Armstrong. These are fine cartoons, just not the best. Anyone who was fortunate enough to come upon the vhs box from more than a decade ago is aware of some of the truly wild and mind melting efforts representing the earliest efforts featuring Betty. But until "Bimbo's Initiation" and "Jippo", etc. find their way into re-distribution, this collection will do.

I was expecting to get a collection of early Betty Boop cartoons but found this did not have many of these. No "Snow White," or "Bimbo's Initiation" for example. I have the VHS set "Betty Boop - The Definitive Collection" and wish something like that could be put out on DVD. The Complete Fleischer Popeye is available from WB on 8 discs in three sets. When will the same be done with BB?
