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.Read more ›
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.
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.

I am all about film restoration, but do we really need a handful of post-Code Betty Boop cartoons, which did not contribute to her success? Those can go on a separate DVD. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Hernan Hernandez
Great to have on Blu-ray, if for no other reason than it includes Cab Calloway & His Orchestra performing their classic "Minnie the Moocher" with a cave full of goofy... Read morePublished 10 months ago by Rick Drais
I own all four volumes of this blu-ray series and love them. It would have been amazing if this was a complete collection. Maybe Olive Films will release future volumes..?Published 16 months ago by actionlog
Too bad it's missing the slip cover like the previous two releases. Still, it's really all about the cartoons, and this selection is excellent. The quality is so good. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Darryl Hirschler
So nice to see these again, having pretty much disappeared from television. As enjoyable as ever, if not more so!Published 23 months ago by Raymond Cabana
Something bad has happened to this series from Olive Films. First, it took forever before we got the first set, and Olive Films refused to answer any questions. Read morePublished on August 17, 2014 by Robert Barker
