Best of Betty Boop???

"Amazon has done a great job of listing the individual titles and dates above so I can keep this short. I was very excited to see another round of Betty Boop DVDs after first purchasing the two Goodtimes DVDs previously released (see my reviews on those). Here's my take on these:

On the pro side, I like that the films are listed in chronological order, giving a good historical perspective. The cover art and DVD menu background are aesthetically pleasing. The set includes one of Betty's most famous shorts, Poor Cinderella, her only appearance in color. This is the only DVD release to date I have found with this episode. Finally, the price for this set is very reasonable.

On the con side, Poor Cinderella is presented in B&W! The image quality is not terrible, but upon seeing this I realized how good the restoration was on the earlier Goodtimes discs. The audio is OK (given that no audio from this early talkie period is really very good), but captions would have been nice to aid in comprehension. The selection of titles on the second disc are all quite poor, even for the Hays Code period they cover. And many of those are repeats of those already put out on the Goodtimes discs, so if you own those I would only buy the first disc here in order to see Poor Cinderella. Finally, the DVD wasn't super user friendly, at least on my player, not allowing me to look at full time for the disc, and forcing you back to the main menu between episodes.

"This collection carries it's title for a reason. It is indeed the ultimate. This collection contained fabulous episodes (All 25 of them). It's hard to find your favorite black and white classics with good qualities, but both DVDs had great sound and vision qualtiy which is hard to find in classics. This is a collection that no Betty Boop fan (better yet anyone) should go without."

"This DVD shamefully turned the only color Betty Boop cartoon back into B & W. So much for historical accuracy. Anyway, my all-time favorite episode is "Minnie the Moocher" with the Full Cab Calloway prelude and song. Where is that?

BTW, I found a cartoon dvd in the dollar section at a local target and it included the original color episode of Poor Cinderella. Not bad for a dollar! :)"
