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 Three includes 12 animated short films available for the first time on DVD and Blu-rayT. 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. Also featuring guest voices of Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Don Redman, Jack Mercer and William Pennell with music by Louis Armstrong and His Orchestra, Cab Calloway and His Cotton Club Orchestra and Don Redman and His Orchestra. This collection includes the cartoons MINNIE THE MOOCHER (1932), I'LL BE GLAD WHEN YOU'RE DEAD YOU RASCAL YOU (1932), MOTHER GOOSE LAND (1933), THE OLD MAN OF THE MOUNTAIN (1933), I HEARD (1933), HA! HA! HA! (1934), STOP THAT NOISE (1935), SERVICE WITH A SMILE (1937), THE NEW DEAL SHOW (1937), BE UP TO DATE (1938), OUT OF THE INKWELL (1938) and PUDGY IN THRILLS AND CHILLS (1938)

The transfers themselves are crisp & sharp, from 35mm fine grains.

It's not very coherent, but it's great to hear the song and see the truly weird images they dreamed up.

Format: Blu-ray
With this release there are still 6 pre-code classic Betty Boop series cartoons and 16 Talkartoons that feature Betty Boop not available on Blu-ray or DVD, so it is quite disappointing to see 6 post Hayes Office Production Code (July 1934) cartoons included here. Even worse, the last cartoon is a "Pudgy" cartoon. With only one more Blu-ray volume release planned, it may be too much to hope for to see all of those missing 18 classics. After the great Volume 2 selection, I was hopeful about this. My guess: We will not get to see those Talkartoons. Paramount doesn't know they have Betty Boop and they will not consult any of us experts. For the record, there are also 11 post-Hayes Office cartoons not yet released.

On the PLUS side, we do finally get to hear Louis Armstrong (I'll Be Glad When You're Dead, You Rascal You), CAB CALLOWAY (Minnie The Moocher & Old Man of the Mountain) and Don Redman (I Heard).
And some of the post Hayes Office cartoons presented here are creative and enjoyable.

The transfers themselves are crisp & sharp, from 35mm fine grains. But no DNR or digital restoration was done, this is a plus and a minus. No animation lines will be lost, but you will see the minor defects in the nitrate masters. I am fine with that, I would rather not lose any animation lines and see the film as it is. But gee, I wish the original Paramount logos existed. Strangely many of the live action sequences seem to have Nitrate deterioration but it cleans up when the cartoon sequences start.

I love Betty and would have given this five stars, except that I, too, am upset that Olive discontinued the boxes. Now we will only have half of Betty's face beaming from our media shelf! Too bad, because it was a cute idea that many of us enjoyed.

There isn't too much that I can add to this that I didn't state in my reviews of the last two sets. It's great that these cartoons are finally being remastered, but no restoration whatsoever and no bonus features......But this time there was no slipcase (unlike the last two sets). The slipcase for the last two volumes was nice and added a little more value to the purchase, and when put together they would have given us Betty's face (see the product image picture that I uploaded). These sets where already overpriced and now they got cheaper on the production. (Sarcasm) Thanks a lot Olive Films!

Would like to have seen this set contain more of the earlier cartoons, before the Production Code forced the Fleischers to tone things down a bit. (Especially since several of the post-Code shorts have already turned up on numerous animation compilations over the years, even if not in such pristine shape as those used here.) There are still some jewels on hand in Volume 3 (MINNIE THE MOOCHER, I'LL BE GLAD WHEN YOU'RE DEAD YOU RASCAL YOU), although the quality of the source material varies from short to short. And it's surprising to see the U.M. & M. TV logo in place of the original Paramount card on some of these, to create a more complete restoration. With only one more volume to go, I hope the next one includes Betty's 1933 version of SNOW WHITE, with Cab Calloway belting out "St. James Infirmary Blues." (Olive's four volumes will only total 48 shorts...less than half of the 115 shorts found in Republic's old VHS and laser disc release from 1998.) It's disappointing that both the Blu-ray and DVD dropped the cardboard case the first two sets had, since the original idea was the the spines of all four boxes would form a portrait of Betty Boop. If it were possible, I would have probably rated this 3 1/2 stars, as it seems as if Olive is now just trying to get these last two volumes out and be done with it.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Content is wonderful, as mentioned in other reviews. As with the first two volumes, I have never seen these cartoons in such beautiful quality.
My one problem is that this one did not come with the outer cardboard sleeve the first two had. This wouldn't be an issue, but the first two put side by side make part of Betty's face on the spines. Now I have half only half of her face on my shelf next to this DVD! The item was new and sealed from a very reputable seller, so I must assume that this volume just comes without it.
If anyone can correct me, I will change this review.

UPDATE

Yeah, apparently they aren't doing the cardboard sleeves with her face on it anymore. This is going to really bug me, but I still plan on buying volume four. This content is just too good to pass up, in any packaging.
