Betty Boop’s Hallowe’en Party – animated, USA, 1933



Betty Boop’s Hallowe’en Party is a 1933 American animated short film directed by Dave Fleischer and produced by Max Fleischer. It stars Betty Boop, obviously.


It’s Halloween, and Jack Frost (in his ice-covered airplane) covers the fields with frost. A chilly scarecrow plucks a wind-blown piece of paper out of the air; it is an invitation to Betty Boop’s Hallowe’en party (“p.s., Bring Your Lunch”).


Meanwhile, Betty Boop is mass-producing jack o’lanterns with the help of her animal friends. The partygoers arrive, and join with Betty in song. However, a hulking gorilla gatecrashes the party, and threatens to ruin the evening. Betty and friends turn the table on the beast, and scare him away…
