"Poor Cinderella" with Betty Boop (1934)

This is the only Max Fleischer color Betty Boop cartoon. It was released in 1934. It was filmed in Cinecolor, which was a new process at the time. Max and Dave Fleischer had done several color cartoons by this time, most notably “Sinbad the Sailor” with Popeye, a cartoon which I actually own a copy of, it is that good. The biggest surprise in this cartoon is that Betty Boop is a red head! But, although I prefer her as the black haired cutie I always thought she was, in the end it doesn’t make a bit of difference - she still sings like Helen Kane.
