"Considering that Betty Boop cartoons are over 70-years old, they look good for their age (including Betty). Most versions we see today were edited for television to meet morality code standards and distributed by U. M. & M. TV Corp. The cartoons themselves were mostly Paramount releases. Betty ran between 1931-1939 and several titles have fell into public domain though Viacom is supposed to be the official owner of Betty.
What you get on this disc is a mixed bag of 11 cartoons but does include the elusive and highly sought after "Minnie The Moocher". The down side is that the Platinum Disc intro plays before each and every cartoon even if you select "play all". And they have a watermark that comes up periodically that isn't overly distracting but befuddles me as to why they do this when all here are basically public domain titles? Transfer quality is normal for Betty cartoons with no restoration.
Titles include: She Wronged Him Right / BB & Grampy / Minnie the Moocher / Musical Mountaineers / Stop That Noise / Swat The Fly / BB & The Little King / Happy You and Merry Me / House Cleaning Blues / The Impractical Joker / BB & Little Jimmy.
There was a Republic VHS and Laser Disc release long out of print that included all of Betty's titles but rights have switch hands and no news about a DVD set containing unedited versions any time soon from Paramount or any other outfit.
