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.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
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.
If I purchased volumes one, two, and three wouldn't it make sense to pre-order volume four ???
Well, then...when can I...Amazon (better sooner than later...please) ???
PS: Yesterday 07-07-2014) it was announced that Volume #4 will be released on September 30th, 2014, published by Olive (ent.-buzzz)and contain 13 cartoons !!!
So, again when can I pre-order my copy Amazon (better sooner than later please) ???
Have fun !!!
As mentioned, there are some minor works, on the disk, but it's well worth obtaining for "Minnie the Moocher", "I'll Be Glad When You're Dead" and "The Old Man of the Mountain". "Minnie the Moocher is the Fleischers at their surrealistic best. It's not very coherent, but it's great to hear the song and see the truly weird images they dreamed up. I told my wife I'm glad I've never had the D.T.'s, which must have been the origin of some of the stranger things going on here.
