Figured now that Will Ferrell has started up his comedy video site, Funny or Die, there’d never be that Thursday afternoon struggle to find a humorous post for Friday Follies. Just click over there, catch something, steal it and voila.
But darn it, they’re all so dirty. Most of the videos we watched in a heavy afternoon of research were foul-mouthed, unnecessarily so.
Kids, you don’t need to work blue.
So we’ll revert to the tried and true today, a Bettie Boop cartoon from 1932, “Minnie the Moocher.” Who knew that Bettie Boop’s parents were German or German-Jewish? (Although, with “Max Fleischer presents,” makes sense). Anyway, this seven-minute short brings you Bettie running away from home with Bimbo only to be confounded by a dancing walrus/Cab Calloway and swarms of ghosts. Bizarre and brilliant. To watch “Minnie the Moocher,” please click here.
(Well that was a belabored set-up, wasn’t it? For something punchier, watch Batman. 36 seconds.)
