Saturday Morning Cartoon: Betty Boop in I'll Be Glad When You're Dead You Rascal You (1932)

This morning, I've decided to feed my Betty Boop addiction with I'll Be Glad When You're Dead You Rascal You (1932)--her wild collaboration with Louis Armstrong. Koko and Bimbo are menaced by Armstrong's enormous singing head--which doesn't work for me--since I don't think the man was capable of being even remotely threatening, but it's good fun. (Warning to more sensitive readers--this is definitely not politically correct. Though I tend to be able to account for the times when it comes to racial issues, I did cringe more than usual when the band members were compared directly to the "savages")
