Made Of Pen And Ink

Posted: April 23, 2009 in Animation, Fleischer Bros.

Since yesterday was my birthday I thought it would be good to post a birthday themed cartoon. Here’s Betty Boop’s Birthday Party from 1933.

Unfortunately there has been no official Betty Boop release on DVD and there more than likely never will be. The company who now owns Betty’s films and the rights to release them onto DVD, Lionsgate, has no intention of releasing these. (I suppose that Lionsgate has bigger problems like their massive debt, that they couldn’t be bothered releasing something that has limited appeal and may, at best, break even!) Still, there is an Offical box set of VHS tapes that the previous owner of the cartoons, Republic Films, released about a dozen years ago.
