Synopsis


This cartoon marks the origin of Betty Boop (at least the name anyway, the character, or at least one with an uncanny resemblance, had appeared before). Bimbo sneaks into a vaudeville theater to see Betty perform. He is enthralled with her performance and stops at nothing to have an undisturbed vantage. The magician who follows Betty hypnotizes Bimbo and then seemingly controls Bimbo telepathically, driving Bimbo insane.
