    Pudgy the Pup is sleeping peacefully; and Betty Boop is happily making batter. But a pesky housefly disturbs their quiet day. Soon Betty is throwing batter everywhere in the house, hoping to catch the fly; but all she does it break her windows, destroy her glass cabinets and splatter the entire house with the gooey mixture. Meanwhile, Pudgy, hoping to catch the fly himself, had jumped into the dough she was rolling. And now he's stuck in it.

    Betty Boop
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Betty Boop is an animated cartoon character created by Max Fleischer, with help from animators including Grim Natwick. She originally appeared in the Talkartoon and Betty Boop film series, which were produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures. She has also been featured in comic strips and mass merchandising.
    A caricature of a Jazz age flapper, Betty Boop was described in a 1934 court case as: "combin[ing] in appearance the childish with the sophisticated — a large round baby face with big eyes and a nose like a button, framed in a somewhat careful coiffure, with a very small body of which perhaps the leading characteristic is the most self-confident little bust imaginable." Despite having been toned down in the mid-1930s as a result of the Hays Code to appear more demure, she became one of the best-known and popular cartoon characters in the world.
