Editorial Reviews

Newly re-mastered in HD from 4K scans of the original negatives and finegrains. Regarded as one of the first and most famous sex symbols on the animated screen; she was a symbol of the Depression era and a reminder of the more carefree days of the Roaring Twenties. Her popularity was drawn larger from adult audiences and the cartoons, while seemingly surreal, contained many sexual and psychological elements. "Boop-Oop-A-Doop" The queen of the animated screen returns to allure and entice audiences all over again in this fantastic four-volume compilation featuring many of her greatest adventures. Volume Two includes 12 animated short films available for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray. All 12 shorts were produced by Max Fleischer and directed by his brother Dave Fleischer. Featuring the voices of Mae Questel, Bonnie Poe, Ann Little and Margie Hines as Betty Boop.. This collection includes the cartoons DIZZY DISHES (1930), BIMBO'S INITIATION (1931), BOO-OOP-A-DOOP (1932), BETTY BOOP LIMITED (1932), BETTY BOOP'S BIZZY BEE (1932), BETTY BOOP'S UPS AND DOWNS (1932), BETTY BOOP'S MUSEUM (1932), BETTY BOOP'S BIG BOSS (1933), MORNING, NOON AND NIGHT (1933), BETTY BOOP'S LITTLE PAL (1934), BETTY BOOP'S PRIZE SHOW (1934) and KEEP IN STYLE (1934)

The single most important feature of a vintage film, regardless of whether it is a cartoon or live-action, is the quality of the reproduction. I am a huge fan of silent comedy, for example, but I cannot even watch a poorly restored and dirty copy of Keaton's Cops or one of Chaplin's shorts, like those contained in the "special collections" sold in supermarkets. The vast majority of the Betty Boop films released on DVD fall into this category: scratchy copies with all the defects of whatever public-domain source material was used by the manufacturer.
But now, finally, Olive Films is handling the Betty Boop material with the care and affection she deserves. The Betty character -based on actress-singer Helen Kane (although the producers successfully denied this in court)- first appeared as a secondary character in Fleischer Brothers cartoons in 1930. The Fleischer Brothers, Max and David, were pioneer animators who had produced numerous silent cartoons and were considered Disney's top rivals. Their productions were noted for irreverence, weird humor, contemporary music, slightly off-color material, and, it must be admitted, relatively poor artwork. Betty's character, a pert little flapper in a short skirt and a garter, quickly earned her own series. Her early films, made during the period 1930-1934, are near-masterpieces of absurd humor, with minimal story-line but plenty of outrageous laughs. They often revolved around some salacious villain trying unsuccessfully to get under Betty's skirt. Show these 'toons to your friends who believe old movies never contained any adult humor.

I have come to believe that these pre coded 1930-1934 cartoons represent the true blue adult humor intended. These cartoons were not meant for children. Of course there will be some out there who disagree. So be it! When Betty was forced to lose her sensuality and sexuality and where a less revealing outfit it took the life out of her intended character-sexy alluring female. Funny and adorable.After 1934 post Hays it was a slow but sure death for poor sexy Betty. And she finally died slowly but surly in 1939. That is why I love the early Betty best of all. Now, finally, we all can see the one and true blue Betty as she was meant to be. Censorship be over and done with. that is how I think and feel. Enjoy the real beautiful cartoon woman, early 1930s.

On this DVD there are the cartoons DIZZY DISHES, BIMBOS INITIATION, BOO-OOP-A-DOOP, BETTY BOOP LIMITED, BETTY BOOP'S BIZZY BEE, BETTY BOOP'S UPS AND DOWNS, BETTY BOOP'S MUSEUM, BETTY BOOP'S BIG BOSS, MORNING, NOON, AND NIGHT, BETTY BOOPS LITTLE PAL, BETTY BOOP'S PRIZE SHOW, and KEEP IN STYLE.

Here is some basic Boop history: The dog Bimbo (who appears in some Betty Boop Cartoons) was a semi-star long before Ms. Boop was created. However, over time Bimbo's career slowly died, and Ms. Boop's career (her first appearance was as a dog like character in DIZZY DISHES) took off. Ms. Boop was a star for about a decade, and in the beginning of her career (early 30's) she was known to be a little risqué. However, over time the sensor's office won, by taking more and more of her risqué qualities away from her. By the end of Ms. Boop's career she was dressed/ personified more as an innocent house wife/working girl (though she wasn't married). Betty had started her career as a sexy character, and she had replaced Bimbo (the dog) in the beginning, but towards the end of her own career Betty's dog (Pudgy) took over her films. Gradually Betty was seen less and less, as the cartoons began to evolve more around Pudgy.
However, on this DVD is Betty Boop's first cartoon short, "DIZZY DISHES." Often people wonder why Betty appeared in her first few shorts as a dog like woman. The answer is that she was originally not intended to have her own cartoons. She was a side character created for Bimbo (a semi-star at the time). Audiences seemed to love her the first time they saw her in DIZZY DISHES, and afterwards Fleischer made a point to have her appear in some Bimbo shorts.

Olive Films and Paramount can't release these 4K scans quickly enough for me. So far, the selection has been mostly very good. Hopefully, the four-volume set will cover all my favorites of the pre-Code cartoons, but there are some later ones I like as well. In the end, I won't be satisfied until the complete works are issued.
