Welcome to the first installment of the Daily Betty. It won't be daily, but it will be all Betty Boop episodes. I absolutely love these cartoons and think the Fleischer brothers were fucking geniuses. It's irritating (though hardly surprising) that Disney became the American icon, when these guys were such brilliant pioneers in the field.
"Bimbo's Initiation" is one of my favorite episodes. Watch this video, and tell me the Fleischers weren't total trippers.
