Boop-Oop-a-Doop (1932)

Short Animated Film | Comedy | USA | English | 8m
Dir: Dave Fleischer | Prod: Max Fleischer | Cast: Ann Little

Perhaps, not one for the kids. Betty Boop is enjoying life working as a circus performer: taming lions, walking tightropes, and singing little ditties. However, when her lecherous boss, the ringmaster, begins to harass her sexually, her life takes a sudden downturn. And despite her pleading with him euphemistically to not take away her Boop-Oop-a-Doop, he threatens to do so by force. Luckily, KoKo the clown is on hand to save the day, in this particularly adult Fleischer brothers cartoon, which features plenty of inventive visual gags, but falls just short of their best work.
