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.
