This set looks like an "okay" mix of early and later Betty cartoons, but nothing really remarkable here. All things considered, the price point seems high compared to other Boop DVDs also available here on Amazon (one set offers 42 titles for less than $11) - especially given that this is a DVD-R "burn on demand" product.
I searched in vain for some of my favorites, these really are some of the lesser Boops. A couple of the cartoons exhibit just the slightest blurring in the transfer to digital but generally they're just fine. The music (which was always outstanding) comes through very well.
For the price this collection would be serviceable to give today's children an idea of the inventiveness of past animation.
This collection has several awsome early episodes. Betty Boop's Bamboo Isle is an absolute classic from 1932. You get a great cross section of years and tales. Minnie the Moocher is probably the most famous episode you will find on this DVD. Starring Cab Calloway and his band.
There is also a great little Bonus Feature in Betty's Rise to Fame.
It is important to realize that these specific cartoons are probably never going to be released by one of the big box companies like MGM or Universal so if you are a fan of Betty and you want these on DVD, then this is one of the better versions to have. This version has alot of good material even if the sound and video quality is not the greatest. You can watch these online for free but for a collector or fan, that is usually not the way they want to watch them.
Do yourself a favor-- buy the video box set, and if you really *must* have them on DVD transfer them to DVD yourself, most new computers with a DVD burner can do this with a minimum of fuss and effort.
