"Red Hot Mamma" with Betty Boop (1934)

I’m not exactly sure of what Max Fleischer had in mind when he produced this cartoon, but it’s really quite good. It seems to involve our gal Betty trying to get some sleep on a cold winter’s night. She shivers herself to sleep; dreaming that she is surrounded by fire and warmth; only to discover that she is in hell.  

But devils and demons, along with a few dancing flames, prove no match for Betty’s cold shoulder and icy stare. And you know what? Before she wakes up, hell freezes over. About the only thing missing here is the devil ice skating.
