"Little Nobody" with Betty Boop (1935)

This 1935 Betty Boop cartoon says it all. When a little mixed breed dog finds its way into a rich woman's garden, to play with her pedigreed dog, the woman is horrified and  snatches her dog away from the little mutt. But don't worry, Betty Boop is quickly on the scene, scooping up the little outcast and making him realize that we all count for something.

Some of these old cartoons really have an effect on the way kids think about themselves, as well as others. Betty is right; we are all special; we all have some unique value to offer the world. Sometimes it just takes a bit of extra love to know it.
