Assorted Betty Boops, for your pleasure

Stuck somewhere without the necessary tools to do a "proper" post, but still up for a bit o'blogging? Never fear, YouTube's here! Today it's full of Betty Boop stuff. Here you go.

Betty Boop's Penthouse (1933)
I've loved the music in this cartoon, specifically the monster's theme, ever since Tony Robinson showed it to us on Stay Tooned!, sometime between 1990 and 1995.

I'll Be Glad When You're Dead, You Rascal, You (1932)
Featuring a giant Louis Armstrong head. Music videos were loads more fun in the 1930s.

Minnie the Moocher (1932)
See? Told you so.

Bimbo's Initiation (1931)
Betty's not in this one much, but she's still there. And it's also one of the best cartoons ever made ever.

Betty Boop's Bamboo Isle (1932)
From the days before the censors even thought of messing around with cartoons. Steamy hula-dancing, rotoscoped cannibals, and good old Fleischer surrealism. What more could you ask for?
